Kammerpop : Debut Album Appeal

By Kammerpop



My name is Fiachra White and on the 29th day, of January 2011, I created Kammerpop, at a concert in Dublin’s Unitarian Church on St. Stephen’s Green. ‘Let there be a 21 piece orchestral ensemble with an eclectic mix of classical and jazz singers performing my original pop music’, I said. And so it was, that after two years of writing, arranging and coaching from a former Director of Music at RTE, Michael Casey, that Kammerpop came to be.

We’ve since performed at The New Theatre and now Project Arts Centre, accumulating talented musicians along the way. Through my work as a piano teacher, my own piano studies and my time as a music undergraduate, I’ve had access to different pools of great musicians. They’ve lent themselves generously to Kammerpop and now we're hoping to record our debut album, Like a Ride in the Back of an Ambulance.

Just getting twenty one musicians together is a challenge, and heaven knows it’ll take a lot more to keep them together. The plan is to go into Windmill Lane Studios for two days of live recording in April, to mix the album at Bow Lane Studios in May and launch the album at a concert in June. The money generated will allow for duplication of 1,000 CDs which will facilitate bringing Kammerpop to a wider audience.

The ensemble consists of five singers supported by string, wind, and brass sections as well as piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, glockenspiel, doublebass, congas, drums and timpani. So far, Kammerpop has been lucky enough to have drawn singers with their own profiles and upward trajectories, and musicians with experience in Ireland's premiere orchestras. Please help us to strike while the iron is hot.

Thanks for your support.
