This is a crowdfunding campaign of a travelling pianist! He wants to broadcast his music live from the most amazing places of pure New Zealand's nature. ... Click bellow: >>Read the whole story<<

PIANOmad is dream coming true of a guy living in New Zealand in a small wooden truckhouse. I am busker traveling around with my full size upright piano and playing piano improvisations. Creating a smile on people's faces is something that makes me really happy.

New Zealand is a jewel on this planet with amazing nature and I say: “Nature is the greatest inspiration of my music.” I want to spend less time in towns and cities and fully focus on doing something that I truly love. For a long time I was watching the nature and I realized it's a system of perfect order and harmony of all components.

I have discovered that the content, uniqueness and spirit of my music are directly proportional with the degree of inspiration I get. This unlimited source of inspiration helps me transform the beauty and colors of nature into the music.

Piano improvisations come from the feeling of moment and place where they were created. The music originates there, flows and finally perishes. This makes the music really unique, because it will never be played twice the same.

What do I offer?

I want to shift my production to a new level. What if everyone in the world could listen to my piano improvisations streamed LIVE from the most amazing places of pure New Zealand’s nature? I am able to build an internet TV and radio channel offering my music 24/7 and have the know how to do it. A LIVE broadcast at the moment the music originates and the rest of time reprises of earlier broadcasts.

I don't want to stay on one place but want to travel with my piano across New Zealand and catch the colors of the surroundings that you could see in the movies Lord of the Rings and Hobbit. I want to organise special events for art cinemas around the world as well. Imagine you go in Europe on a late evening to the cinema to watch a LIVE concert of piano improvisations during sunrise on opposite site of the globe.

Since the live stream is not permanent I'd like to publish an online archive of my piano recordings completely for free, under a Creative Commons license. This allows anyone to use the music for any purpose, even commercially. Meanwhile, I would like to record music videos with a larger crew in national parks on fantastic remote spots and catch this incredible sceneries from the bird's perspective via drones.

There is lot of space for experimenting today, eg. LIVE streaming in 360 degrees, feedback interactions with the audience, etc.

Why I need your help?

I have already invested a lot of money to the truck allowing me to travel with the piano, transport technology needed on location and live on the road. Now I need your help.

Without you this can't start right now, because it needs a lot of money for initial investment that I don't have. I want to finance buying professional TV and film technology and have enough budget for regular expenses of all services and supporting crew. For example just one small part from the production chain - the satellite transmitting antenna is around $20 000 + cost of satellite lines.

Why should you trust me?

I would like to utilize the potential of my experience from TV and film productions. I was creating commercial clips and TV shows and broadcasting NHL, NBA, UEFA and many others. I was also head of the sound post-production department in the largest multifunctional hall in Central Europe.

Cooperating on film productions, especially on movies awarded on world festivals, taught me how to create the things with the love and how to put part of my spirit into the audio-visual creation.

I want to combine the best of both worlds. Use the maximum efficiency and professionality, create artistically and avoid commercialization. On the contrary, I'd like to let the people to choose the value and decide themselves if they want to support me.

Do you want to participate?

I want to realize the vision described above and offer you on the regular basis and for free something that I am able to finish until perfection. For me it is most important to be my own boss, have freedom to do what I love and what makes sense to me. Besides the artistic work I'm about to create a workflow and technological platform which is scalable and allows me to expand gradually.

The more this campaign will collect, the more I can offer. Any funds are welcome and appreciated. No contribution is too big or too small. I will be grateful for any support or just for sharing my story. Success of this crowdfunding campaign could finally help me to build up this ecosystem and I could offer you live musical audiovisual enjoyment wherever in the world you are.

Please help me implement this vision and fulfil my dream. Together we can get beautiful inspiration from the nature.

Thank you
Your PIANOmad
