Úna Keane :: Piano Solo Album

By Úna Keane


My name is Úna Keane. I'm a Composer from Dublin, Ireland. I'm releasing my first Album of Piano Compositions in April, and I'd love you to be involved in helping me put out the record.

As I've grown over the last few years to appreciate simplicity & minimalism in all its forms - in the way I live, eat and dress, it's come through in my music as well.

The Album was conceived over 3 trips to Paris between 2015 & 2016, while staying at Le Centre Culturel Irlandais. This is where I started to compose the Album. I've been so lucky with all the amazing support I received there, including a commission to compose a piece of music after a Seamus Heaney poem. Back home in Ireland, 2 x week-long stays in a rented cottage in the wilds of the Beara Peninsula with my mobile recording studio, plus long walks in Dublin's Phoenix Park with my Irish Terrier Indie provided further inspiration. 

Your support through this Fund it Campaign will enable me to complete this record. The recordings are in the can, and now I need your help to fund mixing, mastering, artwork & duplication. 

My co-pilot on this project has been my long-time friend and gifted sound engineer & producer Ben Rawlins. Ben managed to capture the intimate, raw vibe I was after in studio. We chose a space with naturally warm acoustics, took the front off the Piano, and I played. I've also been drawing on my background in Music Tech & Orchestration - adding strings to some of the pieces, as well as some other sounds I've recorded on my travels over the past year or so..

I've a wide range of Rewards to offer you in exchange for your support. Some standard, some a little more unusual. Something for everyone hopefully! See what suits..

This Fund it Campaign will only run until January 30th, so please get pledging now! I know that I'm asking you at a busy time, so thank you :-)

Thank you

Hi everyone, Hope you're well and having a really nice week. I wanted to thank each and every one of you for your support of my Fund:It Campaign. It means so much! I received your Pledge details from the team at Fund:It today, and am looking forward to fulfilling all your Rewards over the coming couple months. I'll be in touch with you individually on Friday with more details. In the meantime, for all of you who chose the Concert Tickets option, I wanted to let you know that I'll be launching my Album in the Dublin Unitarian Church on Friday, 5th May at 8pm, so save the date :-) John Kelly was kind enough to write a few words for me :: "The sheer beauty of Úna Keane's music is a testament to the wonderful mysteries of sound. Minimalist, free-form - and with a definite Irish tone - these compositions take us to that deep sonic space explored by only the very best of musicians" - John Kelly Looking forward to sharing these compositions with you. Album is 50% mixed now... looking good to have it ready to go to Print by the end of Feb.. Thanks again. I'll be in touch on Friday - Úna x

*** WOW ***

Thank you all so much. With your help and support I've reached my FUND:IT target, with 2 days to go. Wow. I'm so grateful, and more determined than ever to make the best Record I possibly can. I'm disappearing into the studio for the weekend, working on Mixes for 3 more Album tracks... Planning on having the record ready to send to print by the end of February. Massive thanks to IMRO for posting this today :: https://www.imro.ie/news/una-keane-to-release-new-album-with-fundit-running-until-monday/ Thank you one and all.. I'll be in touch again on Monday, when my Fund:It Campaign officially closes. Úna x

Nearly there :: Album 90% Funded.. 1 week to go

Hi everyone, Hope you're well, and gearing up for a fun weekend. I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU for all your amazing support of my FUND:IT Campaign. I appreciate it all so very much. There's just a little over 1 week to go now before my Campaign ends, and I'm delighted to say that with your help I've reached 90% of my target... Still 10% to go though.. so I was wondering if you might be able to help spread the word, and help get me to the finish line!?! I released a Video for "It'll All Be Okay My Darling" last week. Any mentions / shares on Social media would be amazing... including a link to my Fund:It page :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcShsNgW1kE Go raibh míle maith agaibh, Úna x P.S. For those 3 *extremely* generous Funders who chose the 500.00 euro Reward option (a Commission to compose a piece of music).. Just to let you know, I will only find out who you are on Feb 7th, when the lovely team at FUNDIT.ie release my Project details to me.. So, I hope it's okay if it takes longer than Feb 14th to get your Composition to you? It'd be nice to sit down together and work out your preferred Orchestration etc. Let me buy you lunch... :-)
