So I am sure some of you have read the soul-crushing, heart-breaking post that Jari Mäenpää wrote today about his inability to fund his musical projects. (I posted it in its entirety after the break)
Crowd-funding being out due to record constraints, as we all figured out, it seems that Jari needs one thing: A studio of his own.
A studio costs a fucking fortune. They cannot afford it. They are musicians, and musicians make less and less money. Fans want to help - but we can’t because the money would not be used the way we, the way the band wants it to be. We want them to keep making music. But there is not much we can do.
Or is there?
What if we sent them money directly? Small amounts of money via PayPal?
Is that a thing that would be possible, would it tie in to their contract with Nuclear Blast, or would this gift money be able to be put to good use?
Finnish tax laws state that You must pay gift tax if you receive gifts worth €4,000 in total from the same donor in the course of three years. If there is more than one donor, the assessment of gift tax applies separately to the gifts of each donor.
So if everyone sent their gifts separately. And it was all €3,999 or less, THEY WOULD GET TO KEEP ALL OF THE MONEY.
Lovers of all things Wintersun, landofwastingtime and battle-goblin regulars, and other manta ray enthusiasts - What does the insanely dedicated Wintersun/Jari fanbase think?
How much money would you be able to give to keep this talent from dying out? Can we legitimately crowdfund $500,000 to send as a gifts, so Jari can purchase a rudimentary studio?
If you haven’t seen Jari’s post, read it here (have a box of tissues ready):
I just want to hug Jari and tell him everything will be fine.
I’m afraid to write this, but there’s a leegal loophole that could give Jari freedom from Nuclear Blast.. dispand Wintersun and form another band under another name… Children of Bodom did that when they were called “Inearthed” …
That’s exactly what I thought about, but I am afraid maybe Nuclear Blast have something in the contract to make sure they won’t do this? You know, this could cost them a lot of money. But if this worked for CoB… Maybe this is the last solution for Jari, if he won’t figure out something else…
I am so angry. Nuclear Blast won’t let Jari do a crowfund so he can build a studio but they won’t lend him money for it either! They would rather see Wintersun dead than not have their money…
I am so sad. Music industry is ruining music. Sorry, but it’s true. Jari is living in a shitty apartment, giving everything he has to their music and it’s still not enough. He has material for at least 5 albums and all he needs is his own studio. And they won’t let him have one.
