Timur and the Dime Museum is making an album of COLLAPSE!
This past spring, I premiered COLLAPSE with Timur and the Dime Museum at REDCAT, and it traveled to Miami Light Project and Operadagen Rotterdam. Developed by Beth Morrison Projects, one of the leading U.S. producers of contemporary music works, COLLAPSE is a piece that I wrote as a “post-ecological requiem.” Each song is about a different man-made natural disaster, following the traditional form of a requiem.
The live show was transformed into an amazing multimedia experience with costumes and interactive video, and I was really proud of how it turned out. We’ve gotten a lot of great press, including the LA Times, Miami Herald, Financial Times, LA Weekly, and others. COLLAPSE will continue in 2015 with shows in New York and beyond.
In order to fully realize this piece, we are creating an album of COLLAPSE! We’re trying to do it right, which involves more of a budget than our previous recording projects. From start to finish, the process will cost us over $13,500. For independent artists like us, this is something of a challenge. So, we’re turning to our friends and supporters to help fund this project! The future of COLLAPSE is in your hands. All money raised will be used to create an amazing recording of COLLAPSE, helping spread awareness of the important environmental issues addressed in the piece.
All donations to COLLAPSE are tax-deductible, and we have lots of perks and rewards. Payments can be made via credit card, paypal, or check.
Our deadline for raising this amount is December 7! Please check out our fundraising page and consider supporting COLLAPSE:
This is a pivotal moment in scale for me and for TDM, and I’m hoping you will be able to help us transition towards bigger and even more exciting projects.
