Ari Needs to Make Music

Ari Solus (youtube, bandcamp), East Bay producer has been making music since he was a child, often citing it as his only comfort and passion. He has been working on his FEARSLAVE project for the last 5 years, working and reworking each song hundreds of times. The FEARSLAVE project has been one of the few constants in his life the past few years -- years which have otherwise been filled with an onslaught of social, financial, and health struggles. Ari is a gifted producer, and since I've known him, he has just wanted the stability to work on new songs, projects, and releases.

Ari's computer and hard drive were stolen while paying for gas at a 7/11 this weekend. Most of his songs, stems, files, are gone. He has no way to work on the projects most important to him. He has to start completely from scratch. There is an extremely low probability of finding the hard drive. Even if found, they will most likely be wiped. Ari has very little chance of getting his stems and files back.

Like most people in America, Ari is scraping by and has no extra money to buy a new computer. To keep Ari sane, he needs to make music, and needs a computer to do so. With a laptop, even if he can't get his files back, at the very least he can make new music. Ari's music reaches and resonates with many people, and many lives could be revitalized and uplifted with more Ari Solus. Let's help make that happen.
