article imageKickstarter campaign aims to aid artists w/ mobile music truck

Los Angeles - On-demand, mobile recording studios are rolling into Southern California at a high rate of speed ready to transform the music industry in a localized and very personal way.
In 1968, the English rock band ‘The Rolling Stones’ decided they needed a new environment to record music while they were on the road. With the guidance of various top engineers and producers of the time, a mobile recording studio was created. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, and Iron Maiden all developed albums inside.
Fast forward to June 12, 2014 and a similar idea has surfaced in Los Angeles, California during the height of a music scene transformation. Strung together by two local entrepreneurs and a strong Board of Directors, HNDP (which stands for Helping Neighborhoods Discover Peace) has just released a Kickstarter campaign to help bring music and digital arts programs to more under-served youth across the Los Angeles area. Their vision is to lead a new generation of artists, musicians, designers, and anyone else who wants to learn the in’s and out’s of the music industry.

The starting goal is $15,000 which will cover the cost of the truck, DJ equipment, and sound devices along with maintenance and insurance expenses. Stretch goals are also in place to allow for additional hardware like laptops, wifi routers, and a recording booth.
Rewards range from pop-up business cards to wearable apparel to inaugural truck performances. All of which can be acquired by supporting the HNDP campaign on Kickstarter.
