We would like to raise funds to record our second album: Dangerous Song – blue. This will build on our work so far with 2 previous projects performed all over Australia and NZ and the recording our first Dangerous Song CD.
‘Dangerous Song – Blue’ connects our hearts with the planet’s heart through the exquisite combination of endangered animal calls with the human voice. It evokes an emotional connection and response to the sometimes “hard to swallow” facts about the current Sixth Extinction Crisis and state of our oceans, inspiring understanding, love and hopefully action. It’s a song for the planet – an inter-species choral work, and they’re singing for their lives! If their calls don’t affect you then nothing will. We were inspired by the incredible underwater cinematography of David Hannan (#OceanArkAlliance) to compose this music for a live multimedia performance of the same name (Dangerous Song – blue).
Instead of creating more waste, we have decided to release our album using eco-friendly re-usable grocery bags (to replace one use plastic bags) with a download card to download the music online, so that we can help support the ban the bag movement and encourage everyone to take action in this war on waste.
We aim to record this album at the end of October, ready to release in December 2017.
Our project has an important message which speaks directly to the heart in a way that words cannot. It pays homage to our ocean, which is key to our survival. It is important for us all to unite and make big changes to our current ways, so through our music we want to spread awareness and help generate a love for this beautiful planet (especially the Ocean), because in the words of Jacques Cousteau “We protect what we love”.
We need to raise $5000. This will allow us to record, mix and master our music and purchase our eco-friendly natural fibre shopping bags printed with our logo and a list of environmental organisations that people can support; and print up our album artwork and download code on 100% recyclable card with eco-friendly printing ink.
The end result will hopefully add to this growing wave of change, where listeners to our music will be further moved to help carry and spread a very important message to generate a love for our ocean, as – “It’s the blue heart of the planet — and, we should take care of our heart.” Dr Sylvia Earle.
