Hey @Monish016 ! Thank you for supporting us!
The studio rent goes to Arroz Estudios.
The artists’ fees is split between the artists. They can get the equivalent of 50 to 160 euros. It depends on their own stipulated fee as well as the format. We have back to back, where 2 artists share the decks, group concerts (we just recorded our first last Wednesday) and solo shows.
The curators staff fee is the total payment of my work and Miguel’s work + onboarding. I’m more in charge of image ie.Social Media management, curating the shows, the video in situ, creating the posters, setting up the space and onboarding the artists.
Miguel is in charge of the sound ie.the streaming (on OBS, Twitch, CryptoVoxels) and the recordings (recording video in two cameras, recording the audio separately), editing the sound and video, mixing the audio, upload to Mixcloud and Youtube.
Regarding equipment, we actually had to spend from our own fee to make it work. The studio Arroz rents us doesn’t come with any equipment, even though they lent us a few items (twice). But it’s not something they offer. It was a special request.
On the first month we rented:
Ring light and tripod +1 subwoofer / 45 euros (per month)
2CDJs+Mixer /200 per month (new, they are worth 780 each CDJ and 800 euros the mixer)
We also bought a GoPro Hero 8/ 262 euros and a ring light /30 euros
We borrowed from friends:
Iphone to help the streaming when we couldn’t use the MacBook
Miguel’s monitors and cables
Miguel’s TASCAM recorder
We borrowed from Arroz: 1 Turntable Pioneer MK2
Second month (until now):
Arroz provided some of the mics and some of the mic stands we needed for Ryskinder’s recorded concert. Again this was an exception as they do not offer equipment.
We plan to buy:
One SD card / 15 euros
Buying a tripod / 43 euros
USB3 adaptor for the streaming/ 45 euros
We plan on renting the CDJs and mixer again / 200 euros
Cables/ 62 euros
Mic 101 euros
Upgrades from other DAO’s:
We had our Arroz streaming support proposal approved so we could buy a computer that is strong enough to do the streamings and we are holding workshops to teach them how to stream.
