François Carrier⎜Music funding
Saxophonist ⎜improviser ⎜composer
As you probably know, I’ve been travelling the world for several years to play my jazz and improvised music concerts.
I am now asking for your support in order to realize many other upcoming artistic projects.
Yes, but why?
The funds raised will allow me to finance my creation projects, production of new albums (vinyl) and future musical tours. This money will also be used to hire musicians as well as for the graphic design and the publishing of a long-awaited photo book of my recent musical wanderings.
Who am I ?
Truly creative, deeply intuitive, visionary, totally inhabited by the arts, always amazed and eternal optimistic, I am so grateful for being alive and well.
« – You can’t imagine what happens in about 100 minutes and four long tracks. We’re talking about a big free jazz-based work, like the kind Coltrane did in his later years or the kind Coltrane would have done had he lived a little longer. Really important recording that you should definitely pay attention to even if you don’t listen to this kind of stuff (then you might start to care), since there’s a war going on. A storm of tones, rhythms, contrasts, harmonic phrases that complete the language of the music. No small thing. »
