Inventioning (aka INV) is the musical group founded by Michael Lewis with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Jon Anderson (The Voice of YES) and world renowned violinist Jean Luc Ponty. The Anderson-Ponty Band was formed out of this union and APB went on to have two successful tours, an album and a live DVD. Meanwhile, MIchael Lewis kept the flame burning for the original project "Inventioning" with plans to continue producing new works in a Prog-Rock style blended with contemporary jazz. The Inventioning band has released two songs thus far -- Walking Talking and Onward with many more songs already in the works. They also produced a beautiful music video to go along with Onward, it was filmed on the coast of Oregon, USA. Inventioning has also released a clip of the next song they are working on which features Jean Luc Ponty on violin. These projects are extremely time intensive and the average cost to complete a song has been in the $10,000 range for studio time, engineering, producing and musicians fees. Because of the time and expense involved, INV has been unable to work on these projects full-time and at the current pace it would be years before a full album was completed. Our goal with this campaign is to raise enough capital to work on this project full-time so that we can finish the album and get the band on tour within the next year. We hope to complete the songs that are already in the works and add 8 to 10 more songs for a total of 10 to 12. Fully funded, we will be able to finish the project in a timely manner, manufacture CD's, Vinyl LP's and T-shirt rewards (for those who donate $50 or more) and launch a tour. Any amount we receive over the cost to produce the project will be put towards new music videos and/or touring expenses to get the band on the road. The Inventioning band features a set of world class musicians who are all committed to the project, but they do not come inexpensively. What we've released so far gives a glimpse of what is to come and we believe it's something that is truly special and we hope you'll feel this way too. And just so you know, regardless of how this campaign goes, we are committed to finishing the project but your donation will make a big difference to how soon we can get it done. So please join us and we will make beautiful music together! Thank you for your support!
