Anna Morley · New Album

<p> Hey!</p> <p> Step inside, thanks for dropping by. My name's Anna Morley and I'm an Australian musician and composer living in Berlin. Over the past 18 months I have been working on tracks for a new full-length album "<em>Treasure Pleasure</em>". </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Kkbb2-1430234679" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/191594/kkbb2-1430234679.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> Now with less than 30 days until recording begins, I would like to ask for your support to meet some necessary production costs. With your help, together with earnings from gigs, teaching and freelance work, I will be able to make my fourth album a reality.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="552647_10150913660801762_668349684_n-1430323855" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/192058/552647_10150913660801762_668349684_n-1430323855.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> "<em>Treasure Pleasure</em>" will transport listeners into a sensory palette of vibraphone, double bass, sensual vocals, heavy beats, warm electronic nuances and a veritable mini-orchestra of sonic colours. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Anna_morley_-_photo_by_seagull-1430141879" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/191032/Anna_Morley_-_Photo_by_Seagull-1430141879.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> I will be joined by Producer <a href="http://alexforster.net" target="_blank">Alex Forster</a> and musician <a href="http://www.jorgedarocha.com/en/home" target="_blank">Jorge da Rocha</a> for the recording of "<em>Treasure Pleasure</em>". Here is a time-lapse film of my previous album recording "<em>Water Door"</em> (2013):</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2FYwUEdOFpRTI%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DYwUEdOFpRTI&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2FYwUEdOFpRTI%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> Jorge da Rocha is a Portuguese double bassist, guitarist and singer. Jorge plays and records in a number of different projects within Barcelona's vibrant music scene. He is currently developing his own solo project while continuing to study double bass and singing. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fl4ktGwwgQ2s%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dl4ktGwwgQ2s&amp;image=http%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fl4ktGwwgQ2s%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> Alex Forster is a audiovisual adventurer who travels the world to capture and produce rich soundscapes that cross boundaries and fuse traditional acoustic and progressive electronic styles. He has collaborated with artists such as Radiohead and organizations such as Oxfam, BBC and the Sonar Festival.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="423182_10150579014176762_146983775_n-1430323754" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/192056/423182_10150579014176762_146983775_n-1430323754.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> The money raised in this campaign will go towards the production stages of the album. The three of us will collaborate together on the 10 tracks I have written. The next stage is editing and mixing, when Alex and I will meet again to review all the material and get it ready for mastering. When completed, the album will be taken to the local printers for CD manufacturing and duplication. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Annarecording-7319-1430235060" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/191596/annaRecording-7319-1430235060.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> SO, if you're still reading, high five!
