What’s Inner Wave?
Inner Wave is a collection of digital content that aims to give you an intimate look into our process.
What type of content can I expect?
Primarily video-based content such as ‘Making Of,’ ‘Behind The Scenes,’ and educational material (songwriting, production, mixing, guitar, etc.), as well as Q&A sessions, Online Release & Listening Party, and more.
Why VIP Access?
Inner Wave is aimed at backers of the crowdfunding campaign. All backers will have exclusive VIP Access to all content.
In addition, as a VIP you will also get early access to music videos, singles, and live performances.
Will there be a public feed as well?
Yes, we’ll share teasers and shortened versions of our content publicly for promotional purposes.
How often do you plan to release content?
Once a week. Sometimes it’ll be quick and dirty vlog-style content, while other times it’ll be more scripted with higher production values. Or anything in between.
Can I make suggestions for future content?
Absolutely! Inner Wave is intended as a service for you, our listener. So, any and all feedback is appreciated and welcome.
I can’t afford to back your crowdfunding campaign, is there another way that I can get access to Inner Wave?
Our cheapest tier is only €15 and will get you months of weekly content. That’s a pretty good deal! If you really can’t afford to back our campaign though, feel free to send us an email at email@example.com and we’ll set you up with a free account.
Is that the final artwork?
No, the artwork you see in the product pictures is placeholder artwork.
Do you ship world-wide?
Yes, with a few exceptions. If you want to see the available shipping options for your address, simply add your tier of choice to the shopping cart. This will take you to the cart page where you can enter your address to view all available shipping options.
Are shipping costs included?
No, they are not. If you want to see the shipping costs for your address, simply add your tier of choice to the shopping cart. This will take you to the cart page where you can enter your address to view all available shipping options and their associated costs.
Do you provide tracking?
No, in our experience, this isn’t worth the added costs. Untracked packages are much cheaper through our national postal services, PostNL. While it may be frustrating not to know when your package will arrive, in our experience, packages arrive 99% of the time. So, your patience will be greatly appreciated.
How long will it take for my package to arrive?
This depends on the time of year and your location. Generally, within Europe, it takes about a week. Overseas delivery can vary, taking anywhere from a week to up to a month.
How will my money be used?
I wish I could provide you with a more exciting answer, but the simple truth is that your money will primarily fund my ‘time.’ For the most part, we don’t need to rent fancy studios, equipment, or hire mixing engineers or other personnel. We handle almost everything in-house. While in many ways, this is an ideal position to be in, it does come with a cost.
This cost especially impacts me, Tymon, because I take on a multitude of roles for Our Oceans. I’m the songwriter, lyricist, guitarist, singer, mixing engineer, producer, manager, website designer & developer, shirt designer, social media manager, and I run the merch store. And I’m sure I’ve forgotten plenty of additional tasks. Don’t get me wrong; I love fulfilling all of these different roles! But it does demand a significant amount of my time.
Furthermore, I don’t work very quickly. Our Oceans is important to me, and I pay attention to every little detail of the music and every aspect of each additional task I take on. This dedication means I don’t have any time left to earn a living through other means.
However, with your help, I can devote all the time and attention needed to produce this next chapter of Our Oceans. A chapter that we can be proud of, and that you deserve.
Aside from that, there are, of course, some additional costs involved, such as renting a studio for recording drums, hiring a professional artist for the artwork, and engaging a master engineer to add that final touch of polish. These costs do add up quickly, and your funding will, of course, be directed toward covering these expenses as well.
I hope you appreciate the transparency, and I’d like to thank you for considering backing the campaign. Yuma, Robin and I are incredibly grateful for your support ♥️
