About Alex Bainter

About me
My name is Alex Bainter. I'm a web developer and musician who likes to make stuff that usually involves sound and technology. Some of the web apps I've built include Generative.fmCorruption Loops, and Blossom. Generative.fm is by far my most popular project, and the one most Patrons are interested in.

How I use Patreon
Generative.fm is available completely free of charge and ad-free. However, maintaining the service and developing new features is not sustainable without financial support. Instead of featuring annoying ads or charging users a set fee upfront, I use Patreon to enable folks to pay whatever they want for the service. In return, Patrons receive recognition and exclusive updates about the service and its creation process, as well as getting to influence and prioritize changes.

What is Generative.fm?
Generative.fm is an open source platform for playing generative music in the browser. It's a collection of ambient music generators which generate brand new music for as long as you're willing to listen. The site is completely free for everyone and doesn't feature advertising.
