We made it :)

Published Jul 19, 2014 12:52

Our crowdfunding event was a success!
We got 130 backers, and this will be a great help to us going into the next stage of album production.
For everyone who purchased an album, they will get sent out as soon as they are done, our goal is 12. August.
For people who got a Skype hangout/music production masterclass with us, we will get in touch with you this week to schedule a date.
Teslagrad keys will also get sent out as soon as we get them :)

Thanks again everyone :) We will have a little celebration today.

Looking back through old files on the studio computer, it was fun to listen through the various versions of the song "Angeles". And so I thought I'd share them with you :) So here's Angeles, from Jørn's initial idea, through many variations, to the final song:

For our regular Haap newsletter, we just did a mini-recap of what Haap is all about. Read and/or subscribe to it here:

And I wanted two present some videos for you. First Uena. The song that started the Haap journey.

And now something completely different ;) Heidi is a very fun and funky flautist, as you can hear in this song:

And rumor has it that it is Heidi's flute sampled in this version of the spider-man song (listen at around 1:20):


but, but... Euro???

We have gotten some questions about our campaign and the prices in Euro. When you pay, you will do so via PayPal, and PayPal will convert the price into your local currency if needed :) Simple.

We have also made this little "mood trailer" with a tiny glimpse of the album's story.

Album Art

It is probably a little premature to "announce" this, but we have just started talking with an artist called Vidar Haug. By now, Heidi has almost written an entire novel worth of story material for the album.. so there should be plenty of scenes and imagery to choose from to include in the booklet, and of course as the main cover :)

Artist Vidar was recommended to Jørn by some of his Teslagrad collegaues. And just look at this:

and this

These are both from Vidar's blog.

So what do you guys think? I think his style is perfect for our album!

Autumn Aria

Published Jun 10, 2014 12:35

Autumn Aria was an EP we recorded last fall. It is included as a bonus gift in a couple of the reward tiers.

Read more about Autumn Aria

"According to Heidi the initial idea for “Autumn Aria” was to arrange an intimate concert, Heidi at the piano, one camera filming everything, all in one take. No “fix it in the mix”, no gimmicks, just natural reverb from the location they recorded in. This would be nothing like autotune or similar anywhere near this production. Then the plan was to release the EP and put the entire concert on YouTube."
