"Assembly of Shadows" Debut Recording

$12,375 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 141 people in 9 months

Hi, my name is Remy Le Boeuf, and I am asking for your help to record the debut album of my 19-member jazz orchestra, Assembly of Shadows.  If you like my music, you can help in the process of its creation!

Over the last three years I have discovered a new side of my musical identity as I’ve enjoyed composing music for jazz orchestras around the world. After composing and premiering dozens of pieces, I am finally ready to record.  

This is no normal album—it involves 19 musicians, two days in the recording studio, a producer, conductor, videographer, graphic designer, recording engineer, a week of editing, a week of mixing and mastering, rehearsal space, a publicist, and a whole lot of love.

The Assembly of Shadows jazz orchestra is comprised of some of my favorite (seriously talented) musicians. By donating to the creation of this recording, you won’t only be supporting me, you will be supporting my bandmates as well. If you live in New York, you can come see us live on December 7th at the Jazz Gallery!

Please consider sharing this video after you donate. Every view will help me get closer to my goal.

Of course, I have some incentives to help get you involved…

Hi Everyone,

Thanks so much for donating to the Assembly of Shadows recording! We had a blast recording in March and everything went really well. We didn't reach our goal in the end, but we made enough to record! The next step is the editing, mixing, and mastering which will take a couple months. I plan to release the album in November!

Here is what I need from you... Remember those perks you get for donating? I just need your email so that I can send you an album download when the time comes. If you donated a larger amount and will receive a physical album, I'll need your mailing address as well. You can choose any one perk at or below your donation amount. If you want to make it easy for me, just email me at remyleboeuf@gmail.com and I'll make sure to get you your rewards when the album is out!

Thanks for supporting my music! It is one thing to receive grant funding and commissions for projects, but when the support is coming straight from friends, family, and fans it is super fulfilling!

Big hugs,

Remy

Hi Everyone,
I'm excited to let you know we'll be recording the album at the beginning of March in NYC! Also, thanks to your help we made it to 50%!!! (A couple of generous donors sent checks and that's why it isn't reflected on the campaign page). We'll have a warmup show at Slope Lounge in Brooklyn on March 4th at 8pm as well!

I am overwhelmed by your generosity! So many good friends living in places all over the world have joined in to help. I'm not only happy for your help, but also happy to hear from you and to have your involvement in what I am passionate about. Big hugs to you all!

Now that the recording date is set, I have a definite end date to work towards (March). We still have a long way to go before we reach the funds I'll need to make this album happen. If you know anyone who might be interested in funding the project please help us out and share it with them!

I'll be reaching out to you individually after the recording to ask which rewards you'd like to receive for donating and how you'd like to receive them. In the meantime, here is a video from our very first concert this past July. (;

Thanks to your help, we are almost 20% funded since launching last week! I am shocked by the generosity of so many friends, colleagues, fans, and even strangers. I'll try to reach out to you all as the campaign continues to ask what rewards you'd like and also just to say "hi." I hope to see some of you at the Jazz Gallery next week on Dec 7th when we premiere my latest compositions!
Big hugs,
Remy
