It's been a good week and there's a fair bit to tell, so as usual lets get to it!
Firstly, with 17 days left, we've just passed halfway through the campaign time for Fun Station 4 Kids' Dinosaur Sharing Animation + Book on Kickstarter. While we have received a few more donations since last week, we're still very much in need of support if we're to reach the funding goal. There's still plenty of time to contribute, so please continue to share this link with anyone you think would be interested, and if you're able to, feel free to contribute whatever you can Your donations help our channel continue to produce fun content for children around the world, so every little help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your help.
In other news (and I guess the main news for this week), I've been working hard on a second Better Than The Book EP this week and have finished lyrics/rough melody and structure for 2 out of the 9 proposed tracks! I won't give you any spoilers as I want this to be a big surprise, but there's been some promising news which could make the EP even better, so I'm looking forward to seeing how that develops. No ETA yet (aim is for release before the end of the year), though I hope to have lyrics finished by the end of this month ready to start recording in May. No promises on that as I have to fit it around commission work, but that's the current plan!
If you haven't heard it already, feel free to check out the One Small Step EP on Bandcamp. If you infer over 2 year of constant production practice and life experience, you'll get an idea of what to expect musically and production-wise. I can't tell you how excited I am for this new EP. It's such a great feeling to be writing for myself again!
Next, I recently found out that the Newgrounds Audio Portal has an option now to allow for streaming audio without allowing downloads, so I've added streaming link for some of my not-free Bandcamp releases: Home, Distance, Better Than The Book - One Small Step EP, Lights, Camera Attraction! - From The Ground Up EP, and finally, Mr Knife. You can check them out here, and expect new material to be uploaded here as and when I finish it :3
Lastly, and moving onto what to expect for next week, I've been asked to do some mastering work, so I'll be busy with that, but I've also been asked to make volume matched versions of last weeks mastering demos. Expect those demo to be up next week with details on Newgrounds. I won't be uploading them to SoundCloud as I've limited time to work with, but I'll provide links in all the other streams.
That's it for this week. Until then please continue to share and support the Dinosaur Kickstarter, as it really means a lot to our team, and as always, thanks for supporting JabunAudio. Take care.
