the overall goal for the project has come down to $1200. all donations will go directly towards the production and shipping of this project. an $8 donation gets the listener one copy and produces one copy for the artists. $1200 would be selling 150 tapes, but also producing an additional 150 tapes to spread amongst the contributors. i would absolutely hate to overshoot, not meet the goal and wind up with nothing (which is how kickstarter rolls), but i have also donated a little bit more personal funding to the cause.
i've got the final five artists here who have each agreed to contribute a track of their own.
remember, your help in spreading the word on this process is critical! very soon i will be sending out a PR wave to a large group of publications in hopes of gathering the interest of previously unreached audiences, but word-of-mouth friend-to-friend contact is the best form of promotion when it all comes down to it.
