Clint Slate - Before The Dark (LP)

<p> Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, I gave blood, sweat and tears to various projects along the years and finally found some balance with that new incarnation.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Clint Slate is a blank page, a clean slate where everything is possible.</p> <p>  </p> <p> First and foremost, it’s a musician collaborating with talented artists in order to serve a single cause: Creation.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="400" src="//;wmode=opaque&amp;src_secure=1&amp;;;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=soundcloud" width="435"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> This first album and its twelve songs are the result of the past ten years, inviting people into my universe through an intimate journey.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Influenced by the likes of <em>Radiohead, Queen, Archive</em> and <em>Jeff Buckley</em>, the tracks lead the way through the inner trip that gave me the urge to write these lines.</p> <p>  </p> <p> On my own musically, I had the pleasure and honor to have some friends onboard, like the fabulous <strong>Eric McFadden</strong> <em>(Eric Burdon, George Clinton)</em>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Here is an exclusive link to discover the first single, '<strong>Over God's Shoulder</strong>':</p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//;wmode=opaque&amp;;;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> As the plan is to offer more than sounds to the audience, Christophe ‘<strong>Kobayashi’</strong> Castejon designed all aspects surrounding the project, including a 16 pages booklet.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Album_covercs-1431291380" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Patchwork_copie_copie-1435571328" src=""></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> Recordings have been made and mixed so the mastering is the only step left. I’m lucky enough to have Kevin Salem, great musician and engineer from NYC, doing it.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The result will consist of 1000 carton digifile CDs.</p> <p>  </p> <p> The next step is to help the album build a reputation and, in order to do that properly, you need to be on stage and on line at the same time.</p> <p> Directing videos and creating a unique live experience are very demanding jobs, both in term of time and money (crew, costumes, equipment…).</p> <p>  </p> <p> Four videos have been shot by our team in order to present you the universe we're roaming into, four acoustic versions filmed as scenarised long shots by Christophe Castejon and Tony Cito: <strong>The Dark Sessions</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="405" src="//;wmode=opaque&amp;;;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p> The fund-raising will be divided as such :</p> <p>  </p> <p> Mastering and duplication are already worth more than <strong>2000€</strong>, the promotion (tracts, posters…) reaches <strong>600€</strong>, the liveshow equipments cost around <strong>700€</strong> and then there are various administrative expenses left to cover.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Of course, may we exceed the primary goal, we would be able to offer you more music, more videos and more interactions.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Because you are a part of this project too.</p> <p>  </p> <p> A blank page where one can write the future.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Will you write it with us?</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="_kob8640-1435571482" src=""></p>
