Quid Pro Quo- an ambitious collaboration of music and art with Fred Schendel, Michelle Young, and Rachel Beckmann
An exclusive collectible solo album by Fred Schendel of Glass Hammer fame is coming to you: We're embarking on this journey with a musician, a bookbinder, and an artist to bring you a highly customized and hand made CD release. Inspired by the artistic community we find in our city, we want to take the "mass-produced" out of this music project, and bring it to you in a personal manner, with each album hand made, each booklet hand bound, each cover hand painted, laser cut and embellished. Some of you may be familiar with Fred Schendel's music from his solo album or from his writing and work with Glass Hammer. Fred Schendel explains in his kickstarter video: "Expect solid symphonic prog, with vocals (mostly mine probably, but I plan on some guests) with a focus on melody but also complexity and intricacy." See the link below for more details on the art, creativity, music, and craftsmanship going into this project. GET EXCITED! There are only two hundred of these being produced, as we want to keep this project small scale and full of hands-on individually crafted worksmanship.
We will be updating you and letting you in on some of our processes so you can enjoy the journey, and watch the three realms of art, music, and bookbinding come together and create an experience you will love to be a part of!
