Music that honours our connection with nature.
Music that enlivens the nature within.
This campaign is a chance to launch Wonderfeel's first album.
A meeting of cultures that brings you a deep & earthly experience.
A mission of precious sharing.....
this is the pledge page to help launch the first album by Wonderfeel.
Any support you can offer is Greatly Appreciated!
This is a new flavour of music ~ organic electronica.
Peet Wonderfeel is an intrepid creator who records his sounds in the real world.
Combining these natural textures and tones to form music and beats.
'Lao Dreaming' is an exploration that your ears have never experienced before.
We'd love to share this album with you ~ and to share it with the World.
Deeply serene ambience and wild tribal rhythms.
The flavours of 'Lao Dreaming'.
A collaboration between Laotian singers & Australian musos.
In the hills of Nothern Lao, Peet met three Akha tribes-women.
Ik'a and Isoe sung two of their traditional Akha songs.
Sitting together on a riverbank at dusk, ancient magic was shared.
In the caves of Vang Vieng, Peet's soul was touched by the divine singing of Phui Suwanh.
Phui sung poignant Laotian songs, his voice bathing in the cave's natural reverb.
All partipants on the album will receive royalties from their tracks when profits are made.
Peet has already assisted Phui to pay for his childen's education.
Back in Australia Peet began working to create music inspired by this journey.
Birthing unique musical styles to meet these traditional voices and honouring the landscapes of Lao.
Richie Youngberry offered some delicate mandolin parts, and wild electric guitar,
Shadowsense contributed her etheric style of acoustic guitar playing.
Wonderfeel uses technology to revere Nature.
Using natural sounds, bringing realness, rawness & rhythm.
This is the opening track from the 'Lao Dreaming' album...
'Lao Dreaming' fuses feelings of the natural world with feelings of our inner nature.
Music for wholeness and connection.
- Mastering of final two tracks $300
- Top-quality CD pressing $420
- Printing recycled cardboard CD Covers $750
- Hiring two professional publicists $1400
- Posting rewards to you lovely folk! $200
The campaign budget is set at $3070.
If we can raise this together it'll shoot the album out into the World!
Update: It seems the project might cost a little more than expected..
We slightly underestimated the cost of publicity and the share for Pozible and transaction fees.
The final cost will be closer to $3700. But Peet is happy to contribute any extra money.
This is an All or Nothing campaign.
If we reach the target, your pledge will be received ~ THANK YOU ~ and rewards will be showered upon you!
If we don't meet the target, no money is exchanged and no goods received.
If the campaign gets OVER the target, extra funds will be useful for promotion and making a new music video!
A breakdown of how the funds are spent will be shared with all backers. <3
If this crowdfunder is successful we will be launching the album in Sept 2017
'Lao Dreaming' is one hour of music that has taken nearly 2000 hours to produce.
Wonderfeel has released 3 shorter EP's in the past.
The response was okay, but not many people knew the music existed.
That's why we're looking to hire two professional publicists to promote the launch.
