Inventioning (aka INV) is the musical group founded by Michael Lewis with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Jon Anderson (The Voice of YES) and world renowned violinist Jean Luc Ponty.

The Anderson-Ponty Band was formed out of this union and APB went on to have two successful tours, an album and a live DVD. Meanwhile, MIchael Lewis kept the flame burning for the original project "Inventioning" with plans to continue producing new works in a Prog-Rock style blended with contemporary jazz.

The Inventioning band has released two songs thus far -- Walking Talking and Onward with many more songs already in the works. They also produced a beautiful music video to go along with Onward, it was filmed on the coast of Oregon, USA. Inventioning has also released a clip of the next song they are working on which features Jean Luc Ponty on violin.

These projects are extremely time intensive and costly for all for studio time, engineering, producing and musicians fees. Because of the time and expense involved, INV has been unable to work on these projects full-time and at the current pace it would be years before a full album was completed.

We have started two campaigns to help fund INV projects including this Patreon page and our GoGetFunding.com/Inventioning page for one time donations.

Regardless of what happens, we won't be discouraged in our efforts to complete what we've started.  Thank you in advance for your support.

Goals
0% complete
Every $350. buys us 1/2 a day of studio time.  Every time we reach this goal, we'll put in at least a 5 hours worth of work into the project.  With the studio time there is the expense of each of the following pieces -- the engineer, the producer and the musician(s).  These are all factored into our costs.
