About the project
Halfway through March 2017, the South By Southwest (SXSW) festival is held in Austin, Texas (USA). It is possibly one of the main music events at present and this year we've been selected to take part in what is doubtless a matchless opportunity to spread our music abroad. It would be reductive to call the “SXSW” simply a festival, it is actually much more than that, it is a music fair attracting all the most important people in the music industry: bands, record labels, bookers, festival, managers, promoters, agencies, etc... For seven days we'll get a chance to play in front of an audience which might include potential fans, a promoter proposing to take us on a USA tour or a record label willing to edit our album in Iceland.
The opportunity coudn't have come at a better time, as in February 2017 we're releasing our new album 'Going Nowhere', an LP featuring nine tracks that we recorded last summer at Laboratorio Audiovisual de Zaragoza, that were mixed by Jorge Explosion at Estudios Circo Perrotti and mastered by Vacuum Mastering. It is an album which shows an evolution in our carrer and which could open the door to the opportunity to reach new audiences overseas.
In 2014 you helped us edit our first album. Now we're about to set off on a new adventure and you've got a chance to be part of it. In return for your help you'll receive several rewards such as our new album (vinyl or CD), a T-shirt, our complete discography or a concert and, of course, a special place in our hearts forever.
What are the funds for?
Even though we were selected to play at the festival, we won't get paid for most of the gigs we'll have there. As you can imagine, it is extremely expensive to get to Austin and live there for a week and, though we've managed to put some money aside, it is not enough to cover all the expenses. Taking advantage of the release of our new album “Going Nowhere”, we've decided to launch this crowdfunding campaign to raise the money we need to turn this amazing trip into reality. There will be 6 of us on the trip and we're going to spend 8 days in Austin. Presented below is a list of the main expenses:
-CAR rental and gas to get around Austin and its surrounding area.
About the project owner
My Expansive Awareness is a neopsychedelic and space rock band formed in Zaragoza, in 2014. Its music is characterized by sounds that seem to be coming from outer space and trance generating loops. Its melodies have a slight touch of pop to them and blend with several sound layers and energetic drums to generate a wide range of sounds and feelings, giving birth to songs which have their own distinctive character.
Their powerful live performances and their dynamic activity within and beyond their national borders (tours in Portugal, France, the UK and Germany) have been key to reaching high achievements such performing at prestigious festivals (Primavera Sound, Milhoes de Festa, Monkey Week or SOS 4.8) as well as the opportunity to be part of Jagermeister music roster and getting through to the finals of Proyecto Demo and Villa de Bilbao music contests in 2016.
See you soon on the stages!
