Hi all of you artists out there!
We are an emerging gothic band from Italy, with a debut EP entitled "Scenophiliac" which will soon be out and available on iTunes and such, but only printed in a limited, promotional CD-version, in a simple package with no extensive booklet.
Therefor we thought of an alternative, more interesting and interactive way to make our lyrics available to listeners: we offer to 5 graphic artists a cooperation based on mutual promotion, free from both sides (although experienced professionals may agree a reasonable compensation with our press office).
WHAT DO THE 5 ARTISTS DO?
They create an artwork, including the complete lyrics of one of the songs in "Scenophiliac", an own image of their choice, which they think suits the lyrics, our logo and their signature. The image chosen can be already existing, created or adapted on purpose, as the artist wishes.
WHAT DO BLEEDING ZERO DO?
We publish the artworks at first as an exclusive content of our Facebook page www.facebook.com/BleedingZero , one each 100 "like" received.
At the end of this promotional campaign on Facebook, we publish and promote the arts on the rest of our network: Myspace, Twitter, VampireFreaks, official website (presently under construction). The arts will also be used as a static image to create a video of the related song, to be posted on our Youtube channel.
WHAT DOES "MUTUAL PROMOTION" MEAN?
Every time we publish, share, link, post, or in any way use one of these arts, we will include the artist's name and all the links to his/her network he/she will provide; so we give him/her the same visibility we give to our own music, on a network which -already before the release of the debut EP- counts more than a thousand users, is cured and updated daily by our press office and will undergo a natural, remarkable growth with the release of the EP and consequent promotional strategies.
We offer each artist a limited-time access as administrator to our Facebook page, so that they can invite their friends to check it out, and ask them to share, link and post some contents about us on social networks to return the promotion and help us enlarge the number of potentially reachable users who may be attracted both by our music and their arts.
Of course the artist should always report the band's name and all the links provided when publishing (or sharing, posting, linking etc.) the artwork.
Many other promotional strategies in common may be thought of, fitting the needs and capacities of partners.
We believe too little attention is paid to art in the present society, and that emerging artists should work together and support each other to let their voices be heard.
We also hope our 5 cooperators may get in contact with each other and create further opportunities for their work from this experience.
Photographer SERA COPPOLA NERI and painter/photographer LERICA ANTICHI have already joined our crew: admire their works at www.facebook.com/BleedingZero !
Comics authors FRANCESCA MENGOZZI and GIOVANNI MARCORA will also take part in the project, and soon their work will be published too.
But we still need 2 of YOU, so CONTACT US!
