If you’ve been thinking of how to set about a creating a crowd funding Kickstarter project, then take a look at this video, put together by the quartet where my daughter is a cellist.
The Mavron Quartet are collaborating with composer Tom Green, who has been working with Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy to turn her book of poems ‘The World’s Wife’ into a song cycle for The Quartet and the soprano Juliet Fraser. The World’s Wife is a poetry collection that takes a swipe at the famous men of history and myth from their spouses’ perspective. We are working with composer Tom and Juliet , using looping technology to bring the voices of all these strong women together in the voice of one world class soprano…the voice of ‘The World’s Wife’.
The video is great and informative. They had their ‘crowd’ in place through their own email list and supporters, and friends of friends, they put together exciting rewards different levels, so all can participate. And now that they have achieved their first goal, they have added extended goals.
