PRLog - Jul. 9, 2012 - LAKELAND, Fla. -- Robert Phillips is one of the worlds leading authorities on the life and music of the early 20th century classical guitarist and composer, Miguel Llobet.  Llobet launched a major international concert career at a time when the classical guitar was in danger of disappearing.  Considered by many guitarists to be one of the most influential figures in the guitar's history, Llobet was in danger of being forgotten by history.  With ties to the Parisian Impressionist composers, Llobet was able to earn the respect of skeptical critics, paving the way for generations of classical guitarist after him.  It was Phillips who, in the course of writing his doctoral dissertation,  resurrected Llobet's reputation and re-established him as a major force in the guitar world.

Now, Phillips has just signed a recording contract  with Centaur Records, and will record the complete solo guitar works of Llobet.  Centaur will promote and distribute the CD internationally, and will also provide for download versions.  In order to raise money for the project, Phillips has launched a campaign with "kickstarter", a web-based platform used by creative people to raise the funds needed to see their projects through.  

Kickstarter has been a good share of press lately, and it's popularity among artists, game designers, and inventors has exploded.  Funds raised via kickstarter generally carry tangible rewards of a value approximately equal to the amount pledged.  The supporters' are protected by kickstarter's all-or-nothing policy.  If the full amount needed for the project is not raised in an allotted amount of time, the supporters pay nothing and the party running the campaign receive no funds.  This helps to ensure that supporters do not give money to projects that are not consummated.
