What is VerdSions?
With VerdSions we celebrate 15 years since the edition of the first WorkAlbum, PaisViatge.
VerdSions will be the 9th work by VerdCel in this format which is already characteristic of him, where the songs from the album accompany a book creating a complete work.
In this case the volume that complements the music will be a fragmentary novel, a story book with illustrations and photographs. A narrative brittle that draws a large mosaic as a Life Soundtrack in the format of Book-CD.
The album, only in this limited edition, will include 19 songs. 5 more songs than the digital distribution of the disc on platforms or in any other publications.
VerdCel, through this collection of ‘VerdSions’ proposes to enter the most bright moments in our lives and connect with beautiful emotions.
He gives us a compilation of little musical jewels which are part of a whole map of emotions.
Pop and international songwriting themes from different languages (English, Spanish, Italian and French) adapted to our own language and sifted through the verdceliana sieve.
They are clips of memory well hooked with the best of adhesives, a song.
A sort of biography that hides behind a selection of songs, some facts that are particular, but at the same time shared and universal.
Some ideas become projects, and only a few projects end up turning into reality.
And in that sense you are crucial. This wouldn't make any sense without you by our side.
It's all about rewriting here and now, bringing to the present time, this "palace of the good memories”. And we will do it through crowdfunding: the process of participation and collective creation.
Take part of it and make VerdSions possible, taking in return a reward, which we will make sure is fair and generous, according to your donation.
We have prepared a series of rewards that we think may interest you.
About the rewards
From this campaign you can have access to exclusive rewards such as illustration prints, photograph prints of the work, handwritten lyrics, concerts at home and for organizations, etc. or also special discounts in the purchase of previous works.
All these rewards (except for the simplest one including only MP3) include the main work of this project: the Book-CD VerdSions.
The Print rewards will be printed in A3 (29'7 x 42cm) size, with illustrations by Daniel Olmo and/or photographs by Juan Miguel Morales. You can choose between:
Reward 'Print'. An illustration OR a photograph.
Reward '2Prints'. An illustration AND a photograph.
Find here a sample, although when the time comes we will send you a specific email where you can make your final choice.
Regarding the handwritten lyrics reward, we will also ask you the title of the 3 songs you choose.
The Book-CD VerdSions can be dedicated and signed if you wish so. Before shipping, we will ask you to whom it should be dedicated.
Shipping costs included in the reward price for destinations within Spain, Catalunya Nord, Andorra and l'Alguer.
Other destinations, we will add the corresponding shipping costs according to the area where the reward must be sent:
Where do your contributions go?
The amount collected will be invested in the manufacturing of the Book-CD, as well as the prints, illustrations and photographs, and the shipping costs, bank commissions and the Verkami platform commission.
If we exceed the manufacturing financing figure, then we will set a second goal. On the one hand we will expand the project reaching other areas also necessary in the follow-up and launch of a cultural project such as VerdSions, carrying out audiovisual works with Clips and Video Lyrics. On the other hand, it will be helpful to assume part of the high costs of music and book production.
MP3-WAV of the full album with the 19 songs: December 2021.
Rest of rewards: between January and February.
We indicate February in the rewards so as not to step on our fingers. lvThe sooner we have it resolved, the sooner you will receive it. In this sense, we will do everything in our power.
It will be essential that you reply to the emails with your data for shipment and your choices in cases where the reward requires it.
