Please support our friend and great artist Z’EV:
Z’EV crowdfunding Cine-cussion Cymatics project
Legendary composer and percussionist Z’EV has a Kickstarter project winding down that could use your help. It is intended to develop a refined version of his cine-cussion system, which links visual art with physical performance (further explanation is available at the Kickstarter page). Donations even at the lowest tier are rewarded with an individualized five minute piece for the donator using the completed system. Any and all help is appreciated!
Californian sound artist Z’EV has four days left to reach his target of $5,000 to develop a refined version of his Cine-cussion project, which is based on experiments with visible sound waves and vibration patterns (Cymatics).
Z’EV started work on Cine-cussion in 2009, and developed a four inch speaker, with a thin plastic membrane covered in water. The Kickstarter funding will pay for further development of the hardware so that it’s practically possible to take it on tour, plus the money to buy a five pad trigger to MIDI set, and to pay for the writing of an audio sampling program, a laptop and projector.
Rewards run from one-off recordings of Cine-cussion, to a bundle which includes a first edition of Z’EV’s Rhythmajik (a book on the rhythmic and magical uses of sound). Watch a Cine-cussion video while following the link below.
“So this begins the last week of the Kickstarter project and I need all the support I can get so even if you can’t donate [but ANYTHING at this point would help] then perhaps you could contribute to the social-networking phase and post this how/where-ever you could? And so here is a link to the cine-cussion Kickstarter project:
heartfelt thanks for any contributions and/or forwardings of this email”
