New stretch target

As we've already reached the target of £700 in only 3 weeks, with just 6 days to go I've set a stretch target of £800! This will help us to cover added incurred costs of:

  • Exclusive, brand new Ridiom EP T-shirts
  • Stickers
  • Other merchandise

Regular Donations: After you have completed your donation you will be able to set-up a regular donation arrangement to continue supporting this great cause.

I am raising funds to support the self release of my next EP- an exciting mix of the electronic, classical and acoustic genres, rooted in the early sounds of labels such as Warp Records and Rephlex.

About Me:

I am a violinist, pianist and composer, and I make electonic music under the artist name 'Ariadne's Labyrinth'. I compose, programme and record all of my work and collaborate with a producer on the final mixes, sound design and sound engineering. 

To date, I have released music on the labels Detroit Underground and Touched Music. This year I am EXTREMELY EXCITED to be self releasing my next EP and I'd love for YOU to support my project!

My Musical Journey:

I began my classical training in the violin and piano when I was 8. This led me to study classical music at a top conservatoire. After graduating, I spent some years living in squats and being around the free party scene, where I developed my deep love for electronic music. I later studied jazz, composition and improvisation as a post graduate, where I also immersed myself in the rhythms and grooves of music from Cuba and Brazil. Upon graduating, and after a few years spent freelancing on the UK jazz and Latin scenes, I began making electronica and I haven't looked back since!

My Project

I have so far released an EP on Detroit Underground called 'Lost and Founded', an album on Touched Music, called 'Twists and Turns' and a remix album on the same label called 'Twisted Up and Turned Around'. 

This year, I am extremely excited to announce I will be self-releasing a NEW EP! I will also be putting on an EP launch party at a venue TBC in London where I'll be performing a brand new live set with violin, laptop and loopstation. 

This is where YOU can help! Arts Council England have already awarded me funding to cover most of the costs of the EP release, which include:

  • Production
  • Mastering
  • Artwork
  • CD manufacture
  • Merchandise (branded Ariadne's Labyrinth T-shirts)

BUT...

...I still need to raise the funds to:

  • commission visuals and artwork to accompany the show.
  • repair my (old faithful!) kit ready for the EP launch party.
  • cover the costs of a 6 week PR and Marketing campaign to get my music airtime and put it out to a wider audience.
  • cover numerous small costs, all of which are needed to launch the EP and live show...
  • put together the lovely packages to give back to those of you who are donating!...

...which is where you come in! 

Your money will enable me to move my project forward and get loads more amazing music out there for you, my fans.

And as a way of saying a special thank you to those supporting me, I have a selection of rewards which I'm sure you'll LOVE! These include (amongst other things):

  • A back catalogue digital bundle offer

AND...

...if I reach my target of £700, then anything above that will be invested into a vinyl re-release of the EP next year! 

I'm really excited to move my project forwards and I THANK YOU all in advance !!! :)
