Kickstarter Campaign Aims to Immortalize Alternative Classical Music Scene in 'We Break Strings' Photo Book
An alternative classical music scene is as interesting as it sounds. Underground composers putting on classical gigs in a non-traditional setting is as punk rock as it gets--and coincidentally enough, it's coming from the U.K.
Apparently, a new generation of composers and musicians started to find gigs for their insatiable thirst for neo-classical. Now, warehouses to pubs are lined with players--sometimes even harboring in abandoned underground stations.
Now, coming to us via Hackney Classical Press, a new Kickstarter campaign is trying to launch a new biography capturing this unique music movement.
The book, We Break Strings, is trying to raise enough funds to get a piece of this action to your coffee tables and subway rides.
Even composer Gabriel Prokofiev (founder of classical night-club and record label NONCLASSICAL) felt it fitting to encapsulate this thriving scene in the format of a photo book.
