The Japanese music promotion company, Chaotic Harmony, started a crowdfunding campaign for the release of an omnibus album containing 13 tracks from 13 different artists from Japan. This album is appropriately titled Chaos Collection. Songs provided by INITIAL’L and ANONYMOUS will be new while the song provided by heidi. will be remixed for the album. Other bands that can be found on this omnibus are pictured in the image above.
To commemorate the omnibus, Chaotic Harmony will be working with artists to release a limited edition mini photobook with artist photos and other bonus content. The goal of this omnibus album is to help spread J-rock and visual kei to new listeners.
To help fund the omnibus album, a crowdfunding campaign via Indiegogo was launched by the promotion company. The campaign is aimed to help raise funds to cover costs such as song rights and CD production. People who back the crowdfunding campaign will receive the CD at a discounted price of $25 (around €22, regularly the price of the CD is $30/around €26).
Other rewards will include Chaotic Harmony merchandise and some perks will include exclusive, personal comment videos from bands or Zoom sessions with Flutter Echo or INITIAL’L members. Bands offering personal comment videos are heidi., DaizyStripper, THE SOUND BEE HD, Flutter Echo, Sick2, ZON, INITIAL’L, and LANTANA. The campaign is scheduled to run through November 7, 2021. Perk rewards are estimated to ship mid December. More can be found on the Indiegogo page.
About Chaotic Harmony
After seeing the high demand for visual kei merchandise that is often sold exclusively in Japan and often hard to obtain, the founders of Chaotic Harmony Imports came together to create the company in early 2016. With their knowledge, experience and connections, they are able to purchase goods directly from the bands. In addition to selling goods online and at conventions, they also organise events.
In 2017, the US-based company organised their first convention event with Avanchick at Tokyo in Tulsa. Since then they have organised more than a dozen live concerts and fashion shows in North America, as well as orchestrating online events such as Timora Talks (virtual in-stores) and events at HYPER JAPAN ONLINE.
