My name is Henry Raker, and I am raising money for my debut album!
I had been hearing a certain type of music in my mind for about two years, but in September of 2017, I realized it was a combination of three categories that the music world has far too few bridges between: the subjective categories of “noise”, “sound”, and “music”. I began to compose an album purposed with combining sounds that I enjoyed.
I had just purchased a portable audio-recorder, so I spent weeks walking around New York City, recording almost every sound I heard. I went out during storms to record rain hitting the river; I waited until after midnight during the week to get clear recordings of my footsteps on the streets; I once spent a whole night smacking piano strings. I tried everything I could to come up with every sound that I could imagine.
Check it out on Kickstarter!
