Robert Zielinski's 'Torbay Suite' Fundraiser

Hi everyone,

I am currently trying to finish my Torbay Suite, a 50-minute original composition about the Torbay Inlet near where I live. For the last year and a half, I have put all my time and resources into creating this album, and it has taken me on an unforgettable journey. The last few months I have been in NZ away from my work and unable to make an income, as I was on tour here when the Covid-19 lockdown happened. So, Sophie Capern, who is now assisting me, has put together this GoFundMe campaign to try and get this album released into the world. 

Myself, Josie Fountain (Cello), Joe Fowler (Wooden Flute), and Phil Waldron (Bouzouki) were fortunate enough to record this piece in The Perth Concert Hall in 2019. I recorded on a violin I made myself.  The piece is divided into two parts: Torbay Day and Torbay Night, tracking the natural rhythms of the inlet.

We have created a tiered reward system for all of you who are generous enough to donate:

~Donations of $30 or more will receive a Torbay Suite download as thanks
~Donations of $40 or more will receive a Torbay Suite CD as thanks
~Donations of $500+ or more can request a private concert of Torbay (WA only) 
Your money will be put towards: mixing, mastering, and CD production among other important things.

I hope you enjoy the music and the images of the Torbay Inlet that inspired it. Thank you in advance for your support, it means a lot.
