Two guitarists want to disclose contemporany music for guitar . After a tour in Portugal they decided to record a CD.

The project consists in the editing of works of the Portuguese contemporary repertoire circulation through specialized stores as well as digitally and also through the CD's Presentation / Disclosure recitals. MASTERCD, Lda will be in charge of the physical distribution (a renoun company in Portugal). The digital distribution will be done by CDBaby (promoter assigns a barcode and distributes it through digital platforms like Spotify, iTunes, GoogleMusic, etc.). Audio capturing and mixing will be the responsibility of Hugo Vasco Reis, a noted engineer and recognized composer in the Portuguese music scene, while mastering will be handed over to António Manuel Pinheiro da Silva, unanimously considered one of the best sound engineers in Portugal. Radio broadcasting will be carried out through a partnership with Antena 2, through advertising spots and interviews. Fafe TV will be a proeminent digital partner given its reach in social networks and will promote the project also through advertising spots and interviews. Mariana Santiago will be in charge of all the multimedia and audiovisual aspects of the project.

This project proves to be original and necessary as it enhances the work of well-known composers in the Portuguese cultural panorama, such as Tiago Cutileiro, António Pinho Vargas, Sergio Azevedo, Vitor Rua, Fernando Lapa, Paulo Ferreira-Lopes, Victor Castro. , José Mesquita Lopes, Hugo Vasco Reis, Carlos Gutkin and Ricardo Barceló. The diffusion of contemporary Portuguese repertoire for guitar is pertinent since it is rarely interpreted and edited.

Budget and due dates

The CD´s are budgeted at 5500 € and this amount already includes the amount of Capture, Mixing and Mastering, Payment of copyright to the SPA (Portuguese Society of Authors), Physical duplication of CDs and also the payment of the digital dissemination campaign.

In the project management there is a clear awareness of the management of the support, with the amount requested in the order of 18%. Thus, the remaining amount comes from other grants, own revenues from the sale of CDs, copyrights and related rights. This results in a decrease in the percentage of support requested. The management options thus demonstrate a commitment to financial rigor and sustainability, including expenditure that is absolutely necessary to the project objectives. In December 2019 the fundraising process will begin and it is estimated that the CD will be released in the first quarter of 2020.
