About abbymachines

Hello, I'm Abby Castillo, and I'm an interdisciplinary artist in Portland, OR. I am a writer and researcher, a visual artist, and an electronic music producer working under the name abbymachines. I use this Patreon to share pages from my zine series realgirl1994, as well as regular iterations of my audio/visual work.

In 2021 I was awarded a grant from the Regional Arts and Culture Council to finish producing my upcoming album Anarchy A, and to conduct research on FM synthesis and the history of trans and queer people in electronic music. Notes from this research will be processed first through realgirl1994, and I regularly post new iterations of songs as well as other experiments in music and sound design. If you are interested in either of these projects, this Patreon will provide you with plenty of updates. :)

Your financial support allows me to make this work more sustainable and is deeply appreciated. <3
