Heavy Metal Tuba Album - The Human Element

Donation protected
I'm thrilled to introduce "The Human Element" – an electrifying album that fuses the power of heavy metal with the brilliance of the tuba.

What sets this album apart?

Original Music: Every track on "The Human Element" is a unique take on the issue of climate change, featuring the tuba in a new and innovative musical context.

Scores and Backing Tracks: I'm not stopping at just an album. I'm providing scores and backing tracks so that tuba enthusiasts worldwide can perform these pieces at their own recitals and shows.

Heavy Metal's New Frontier: I've already begun breaking down boundaries with my "Heavy Metal Concerto." Now, I'm taking it to the next level with a full album!

The Missing Link: Believe it or not, there's a gap in the world of heavy metal music. Few have fully explored the tuba as a solo instrument in this genre – until now. "The Human Element" is set to fill that void.

But, I need YOUR help to make this vision a reality!

Since 2014, I've dedicated much of my musical life to composing, blending classical and heavy metal elements in my works. With your support, I can bring "The Human Element" to life and continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible on the tuba.

Your contribution will fund the production, recording, and release of "The Human Element." Together, we'll rock the world and inspire change!
