Yasmin Pigeon's 1st EP

<p><strong>&quot;</strong>Falling <strong>in love.</strong></p> <p>To rise, upset, sore, dispossessed.</p> <p>A<strong> night</strong> that will count for life.</p> <p>Lisbon as a&nbsp;backdrop.</p> <p><strong>Cidade da luz</strong>, <em>city of light</em>.</p> <p>City of the 7 hills, like so many roller coasters that shake the heart and body of a 20-year-old who falls in love.</p> <p>A story of dazzling but&nbsp;<strong>unrequited love</strong>.</p> <p>An initiation rite corresponding to the transition from carefree <strong>adolescence</strong> to <strong>adulthood</strong>.</p> <p>A boy with blue eyes, seen, lost to follow-up, found, embraced, loved, and<strong> left in the early hours</strong>.</p> <p>Here is <strong>004</strong>, Yasmin Pigeon<strong>&#39;s 1st EP</strong>, the beautiful, simple, and tragic adventure of her&nbsp;first love-at-first-sight.<strong>&quot;</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/693788/9dbceb5d-ef56-4552-a94f-02a5832e02ff.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>My name is <strong>Yasmin Pigeon</strong>. I was born in November 97 between a dance floor and a DJ booth. <strong>Brazilian</strong> by my mother, <strong>French </strong>by my father, I&rsquo;m from <strong>Paris</strong> and lived in <strong>London </strong>through my adolescence.</p> <p>I&#39;ve been singing, composing, and writing music since the age of 16, and often found myself creating films that would go with it, just so I could <strong>dive</strong>&nbsp;completely&nbsp;into <strong>my&nbsp;own world</strong>.</p> <p>It all started about <strong>3 years ago</strong>. I was<strong> nineteen</strong>, living alone in the<strong> north of London</strong>, impatiently looking for a<strong> purpose</strong>. I was in that terrible transition stage from not really needing to pursue school anymore but still having to aimlessly attend - nonetheless.</p> <p>At the&nbsp;same time, I had found a job that required me to <strong>carry </strong>around <strong>my camera&nbsp;24/7</strong>, and&nbsp;one day as I was leaving&nbsp;work, I decided to take it out of my bag and film all of my <strong>thoughts &amp; feelings.</strong><img alt="" src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G5JErLrwXk&amp;ab_channel=YasminPigeon" width="100%" /><iframe allow="autoplay; fullscreen" allowfullscreen="true" frameborder="0" height="281" scrolling="no" src="https://cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2F3G5JErLrwXk%3Ffeature%3Doembed&amp;display_name=YouTube&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D3G5JErLrwXk&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2F3G5JErLrwXk%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=8b7d8dd6504d41af9a77662672aabc2a&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" title="YouTube embed" width="500"></iframe></p> <p>That day, I promised myself to stop bullshiting and&nbsp;focus on things that gave me&nbsp;<strong>a real sense of purpose.</strong></p> <p>A few months went by and I started making videos,<strong> 1</strong>, <strong>2</strong> then <strong>3 </strong>videos&nbsp;with a nice balance&nbsp;of image and sound&nbsp;just the way I like&nbsp;them to be.</p> <p>And then, we finally arrived at the time to make the <strong>4</strong>th video.</p> <p>It&#39;s now<strong> February 2018</strong> and two of my best friends, my sister and I, decide to go to Lisbon.</p> <p>I, of course, bring <strong>my camera</strong>, my <strong>true</strong>&nbsp;<strong>accomplice</strong>.&nbsp;</p> <p>One evening, as we leave&nbsp;a club on the&nbsp;pink street, my eyes meet those of this boy, and instantly, my world stops<strong>.</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>In the cab, on our journey home, <strong>I tell the girls how I feel</strong>. Chlo&eacute;, always willing to turn something into a&nbsp;film,&nbsp;looks at me and tells&nbsp;the cab driver to turn back&nbsp;around.</p> <p>Within a&nbsp;few minutes, I have found myself back&nbsp;in front of the club. I approach the security guy to ask if he knows where the pretty blue-eyed boy was at that very moment in time...</p> <p>The tall man takes a while&nbsp;to take me seriously but finally says that he&rsquo;ll go&nbsp;get the boy but on one condition - that I promise to&nbsp;kiss him when he gets here.</p> <p><strong>Deal</strong>.</p> <p><strong>He arrives</strong>.</p> <p><strong>We kiss</strong>.</p> <p>And the rest is<strong> ... </strong></p> <p>the<strong> EP</strong>!</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/693790/d6e4fe80-34d7-492d-97e1-a72598b6463e.jpg" width="100%" /></p> <p>After making videos &lsquo;<strong>001</strong>&rsquo;, &lsquo;<strong>002</strong>&rsquo;, and &lsquo;<strong>003</strong>&rsquo;, this trip to Lisbon, was planned as the video &#39;<strong>004</strong>&rsquo;. <em>Just another one</em>.</p> <p>But it didn&rsquo;t really happen that way. The intimate upheaval linked to these 4 days spent in Lisbon and my obsessive reflection around the creation and my ability to produce led me to want to <strong>keep this gem for something bigger</strong>.</p> <p>I wanted to go<strong> further than usual</strong> and <strong>really believe</strong> in every voice memo and every line written in my notes&nbsp;after spending these 4 days in Lisbon -&nbsp;perhaps as a way for me not to forget what had happened and how that night had&nbsp;left me feeling.</p>

Allocation of funds

<p><strong>&amp; here we are now, a little over 2 years later</strong>. Now that enough time went by in order&nbsp;to fully process, turn the page, go out, meet people who really understand what this EP is about and how it needs to come to life.</p> <p><strong>No labels</strong> or <strong>structure</strong> but only great,&nbsp;really talented people who deeply respect where I want to go and what kind of music I want to make, and that alone, makes me<strong> extremely happy</strong>.</p> <p><strong>However</strong>, to get there, it comes at a cost. This dream of mine cost <strong>4,800 &euro;</strong>.&nbsp;</p> <p>&amp; this amount will be spent as follows:</p> <p>500 &euro; - Sound recording</p> <p>1800 &euro; - Mixing</p> <p>640 &euro; - Mastering</p> <p>1460 &euro; - Manufacture of the vinyls</p> <p>(+ 8% KissKiss fees).</p> <p>Now that&nbsp;<strong>this first level has been reached,</strong>&nbsp;if your contributions allow it, we&nbsp;could&nbsp;even shoot<strong> my first music video</strong> that I budgeted at&nbsp;2,400 &euro;.</p> <p>And as foreseen in crowdfunding, <strong>each contribution </strong>corresponds to <strong>a reward</strong>. They are detailed to you on the right of the screen.</p> <p>If you believe in me, I will not disappoint. promise.</p> <p><strong>THANK YOU</strong></p> <p>Yas</p>
