The information that follows will be hand delivered to businesses in Barnsley during the next few days as a test of the crowd funding approach to creative projects. This project is not just about Barnsley, it is about the funding of creative projects in the future. The take up of interest, how and why people donate/support or don’t is very important to the development of new creative concepts and I hope to be able to measure some of this in the next 23 days. If you can spare a few pounds to help with the success of this event then please follow one of the links in the text and thank you, if you are not going to help financially then please pass the link on to your networks and thank you. All feedback about your decisions will be most gratefully received and a final thank you.
Deranged Drums on Digital Vistas
For over 30 years Peter Birkby has been participating in and organising world-wide musical events. For the past 10 years he has regularly brought to Barnsley virtuoso drummers and percussionists to present workshops, masterclasses and concerts with the aim of inspiring local young musicians.
The 2014 project is the most ambitious yet, bringing 10 renowned instrumentalists together at the end of June to perform a specially composed hour of music. This is where you can help; your modest contribution (minimum £10) to funding this world premiere will be entered into a draw and your business could be selected to be the main sponsor.
The winner will receive:
• full acknowledgement as a banner on the event programme (and all other events in the next 12 months)
• a citation in all the scores produced
• 12 months online advertising (as part of a free international initiative to share the recordings of the music for anyone to create and submit their version to urbanskyline.bandcamp.com).
The draw (out of a drum rather than a hat) will take place on Monday 23rd June at 12 noon and the winner will be advised as soon as they are selected. The concert will take place in Barnsley on Thursday 26th June at 7pm, the more we can raise, the better the venue!
