The Tsunami Projeckt

The Tsunami Projekt¬†was a one-off music compilation CD which was created in early 2005, specifically to aid the people devastated by the¬†Tsunami¬†that struck Asia in December 2004. This “CD Project as Benefit” was conceived and created by the online community of¬†progressive music¬†fans and artists at the¬†Spock’s Beard¬†website forum. A short run of the resulting double CD was financed solely by members of the board, and sold out almost immediately. 100% of the proceeds (just over $10,000.00) was donated to benefit the victims of the Tsunami.

Along with the many (relatively unknown) artists from all over the world who contributed to the album, a few famous progressive rockers donated submissions as well –¬†Neal Morse¬†(formerly of¬†Spock’s Beard) and¬†Nick D’Virgilio¬†(of¬†Spock’s Beard) each contributed demo tracks, prominent progsters¬†IZZ,¬†IQ¬†and¬†Din Within¬†all have a track on the album, and Ajalon had a song that featured keyboard solos by¬†Rick Wakeman, best known for his work with¬†Yes.

The project was originally the brainchild of Barry Thompson (known on the forum as KirksNoseHair); much of the technical work was handled by Brian Cobb (a.k.a. Brians Split Personality) – he also managed the financial end of producing the album and collecting the money for donation to the Tsunami charity. The artwork for the CD was designed by Martin Kornick (a.k.a. Man In The Mountain), and the liner notes were contributed by Darren Burns (a.k.a. CageNY).
