Love The Gorillaz? Kidd Video? Jem & the Holograms?
Introducing Malta's first CARTOON MUSIC PROJECT!
The Kite Project is a multi-disciplinary venture which will culminate in the release of a 4 track EP and an animated music video. The main story told throughout the EP as well as through the music video is that of a Maltese girl, struggling with her art.
The Kite symbolises the artists' varied journey. There are days when the Kite is teasing, and hard to reach... others where the Kite takes over and control is lost. Finally, after a bumpy ride, there are days when control is regained and the artist, as well as her fellow band members, makes it to their destination.
The four tracks on the EP, which were recorded by Luke Grech and Kenny d’Ugo at Jubox Recording House, were selected by our audience during an interactive gig, held in August 2013.
....AND NOW THE FINAL PHASE IS ALL ON YOU!
YOU have chosen the songs we eventually recorded, followed our cartoons, recording sessions, and trip to London... this is where it all comes together!
MoJo (Malta) will be kicking off the event by playing an acoustic set
This will be followed by the launch of "Don't Hesitate's" animated music video.
The Kite Project members will then be making a rare real-life appearance!
And there's more! Martha from Frawla will be bringing out the decks and playing a post-gig DJ set.
The Kite Project's self-titled album will be on sale at the event. However, you may also pre-order the album on our bandcamp site (thank you!). Pre-order of the CD includes digital album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app. You'll also get the complete album the moment it’s released. Lastly, you may choose to order the album in digital format only.
Martin Bonnici from Shadeena acted as the animated music video’s supervisor and editor. All animations were drawn by Annemarie Mayo and Polina Starostenko.
The project is supported by the Malta Arts Fund.
