Dear reader, thanks for visiting!
My name is Ruven and I’m located in eastern switzerland. Playing guitar is what I love to do most in my life. For me, it is the purest and most liberating form of expression.
The music I create is completely instrumental, because I want the guitar to speak for itself. All my songs are improvised and mostly recorded in one or two takes, because working on a song too much and trying too hard is taking away the spirit of it, hence the essence and substance.
Two years ago I released my first album called «Evening Prayer». It consists of three long songs I recorded while practicing at home. I released it on CD via my own label «White Fawn Music» back in 2013. It can be bought, downloaded or streamed on my bandcamp site.
Why and what I need your help for...
A couple of months ago I have finished work on my new album. It is called «The Holy Fountain» and consists of five songs. You can listen to and download it on my bandcamp site too.
Now I’d like to release it on CD and get it distributed. But to get it distributed, the CD needs to be factory pressed, due to quality reasons. This involves glass mastering, which is quite costly. Production will also include silk-screen printing on an eco-wallet. I’m already finished with the artwork and it is going to be a beautiful looking sleeve with art by Hermann Kaulbach and Henri Fantin-Latour.
I would be forever grateful for your participation and support, no matter what amount your pledge is. With your help, I can continue to release my music on CD and bring it into the world.
