Hi! I'm Dom Italiano (It's my real name). 


This is my (very short) story...


I'm a musician from Melbourne, Australia. I sing and play guitar. I've recorded and released my own music for many years & it's time to get some more out there!


Some of the my past music releases:



Custom Labelled 'Domalina' Port



In addition to writing my own songs, I earn my living as a musician playing solo & in a vairety of duos and bands. I also make the Two Ring Circus Podcast  & have a ‘create every day’ project that has me making little poems and anecdotes out of magnetic poetry… every day…


 


Part of my commitment to being a creative adult in 2017 has been to record some new music. So, I now have a new 6-track EP that I’d like to invite you to be part of releasing it into the wild… Think of it as a musical conservation/rehabilitation endeavour! 


I’ve paid for about 70% of the project and now just need some additional funds to get the finished product out of my anxious imagination and into your car stereo, phone, 8-track or whatever it is you like to listen to music on!


An example of your custom 8x8 framed magnetic poem



The idea is that you select a reward from the options on this ‘pozible’ page and I deliver you the custom  goodies you’ve chosen with immense gratitude and in an uncharacteristically timely fashion! I’ve tried to create rewards that reach beyond the music so that we all experience that the real story behind this project, which is that it is a creative, collaborative effort that you can say to yourself (and anyone else) ‘hey, check this out! I helped make this!'


Everyone who supports the campaign will have their name immortalised as musical conservationists in the CD credits. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions and please feel free to share the project with anyone you think would love to share in the journey!

Music Video for my song 'Once Upon A Time'




How The Funds Will Be Used


I'm working with Andy Zito from Front Room Studios, who is a wonderful man and great musician/producer. He has created some great sounding recordings with artists such as John Flanagan, Fractures and many more. He'll be assited by his brother Mark Zito who is also brilliant and the creative force behind Fractures. I've already paid for the recording and mastering which are the bulk of the costs associated with the project. These additional funds will be used to help cover costs associated with manufacturing CDs & other merchandise, design, photography, promotion, & if all goes well filming a music video. 



If we (as in me & you guys, the supporters) are able to exeed the intitial target I'll be looking to do the following:


  • Register & Create a record label with ditto music -  $799
  • Music Video for 'I Do' - $1000
  • Music Video for 'Only You' - $1000
  • Music Video for 'Never Let You Go' - $1000
  • Start saving for the next recording -  $8000
  • PR agent - $2000 to $3500
  • Print more CDs - $1000 (for 500 extra) (I only have a handful of copies of past releases left)


The Challenges

There are many challenges to recording and releasing music. Some are financial. Some involve time management. And some, accountability & confidence (the last of which I struggle with considerably). 


When you live alone, it's easy to get smothered by the voices that tell you not to bother with sharing your music. It's easy to forget that there are a handful of people who really do want to hear it.


I've backed many music campaigns (& other crowd funded projects) like this one myself and have loved the feeling that I contributed to bringing some wonderful music & ideas to the ears of the world.


It's my hope that embarking on a campaign like this will not only help bring my project to life but, that it will also give pledgers a powerful, 1st hand experience of how important their contribution can be.
