Dear friends, family, colleagues and marimba lovers.
Many of you already know me and know the love and dedication that I have to this beautiful instrument. That is why I am happy to share with you all a new and emotive project in my professional career: the recording of my first marimba solo CD, “SILENTIUM”.
The works that this CD will include are the result of many years of work, performing and enjoying together all this music thanks to your amazing support in and outside my concerts. However, these pieces are also the consequence of an investigation and selection of a high quality repertoire in order to contribute decisively to the spreading of my instrument, the marimba, and all that surrounds it: the own repertoire, known composers and new talents, as well as performers.
Considering this as the basis of this project, the content of it is divided into three fundamental parts:
1) Great composers of the marimba repertoire
Works by recognized composers in the marimba world such as Anna Ignatowicz–Glinska, Emmanuel Séjourné, Éric Sammut, Minoru Miki and Pius Cheung.
2) New talents of the composition for marimba
A strong commitment to the new generation of musicians, with names such as Arkadiusz Katny and Ferran Cruixent, who have written new pieces exclusively for this project.
3) Katarzyna Mycka’s collaboration
One of the most representative marimba soloists worldwide, Katarzyna Mycka, will participate in the recording. I will have the honour to record together with her three marimba duos by Anna Ignatowicz–Glinska, Daniel Nikolas Wirtz and Libby Larsen.
HOW CAN WE COLLABORATE WITH THE PROJECT?
For the elaboration of the CD I already have the generous support of the talent Pablo Moya for the graphic design and the economic support of companies such as Marimba One and Asociación Pro-Música Amadeo L. Sala. This collaborations helped us to obtain part of the total budget we need, but it is still necessary 3.000€. This amount will help with the recording, production and mastering of the CD, as well as with the physical copies, design and printing of the booklets.
The economic contribution that you decided to make will be always connected to one of the rewards that you can find at the right column of this screen. I will personally make sure that each one of you will get your rewards in case we reach the wished budget. In case that we would not reach the budget, the contributions will not leave your bank accounts, what means that you will not lose the money in any case.
WHERE AND WHEN WILL WE PRODUCE THE PROJECT?
The recording will take place at the “AudioArt” recording studios (Spain) and the schedule will be:
Recording: December 2014
Production: from January to April 2015
Shipping of the digital CD: late April 2015
Shipping of the rest of the rewards: May 2015
CD Presentation Concert: May 2015 (+)
(+) It will take place in Alicante (Spain). The date will be announced personally both by e-mail and at the website www.conradomoya.com.
During my entire professional career I have felt your strong support in my studying, in the daily effort, during my investigations and inquires for the new marimba repertoire and I got your “warm hug” after every of my performances. This energy, this unconditional support, is the reason that makes me share with you my newest adventure, “SILENTIUM”: a project where now you are a fundamental part of it.
Thank you very much for your trust and collaboration!
