About

Hi there!

I'm Alice, a pianist and composer living in Berlin, Germany.
Glad you found the way to my patreon page :-)

I'm 28 and have been playing the piano since I was five years old. About ten years ago I began to write my own piano pieces. I was doing that just for myself to cope with some challenging situations in my life. I enjoyed getting lost in sounds and melodies and often played for hours and hours, day and night.
Encouraged by a friend, a piano builder, I started posting some of my pieces on Soundcloud (soundcloud.com/alice_baldwin) and was totally surprised by the overwhelming positive feedback.

This made me consider putting out more of my songs and to write new pieces. A lot of people asked me to record an album. But I always hesitated to record them, because I didn't have an acoustic piano for a long time and felt that it's a no-go to just use piano samples.

So, this is the plan for 2020:
I'm going to take the time to record more of my pieces - I've got plenty of material, around 30 pieces - to release one EP, followed by another in the coming year. 

It's a very time-consuming process to find out which pieces would fit together nicely as an album, because they are all very different. Some of them need to be rearranged or are incomplete.

These are the main challenges right now:
// Working as a freelance videographer and photographer I'm kind of trapped in earning my living and don't have enough time to work on finishing and recording my pieces.

// UPDATE: Due to the corona virus my complete income for the next months is at risk. I rely on events - photo & video shootings, which are currently all being cancelled. So basically 95% of my income for the next months is suddenly gone. In addition, winter is always much harder then the rest of the year and usually things are starting to prosper well again in springtime, but not now. If you want to support me in this challenging situation - this couldn't be a better time!

Your support will help to:
// Give me time! With your monthly support you will help me to spend more time working on an album (and say no to other jobs)
// Pay a mixing and mastering engineer
// Pay for basic acoustic room treatment in order to make professional sounding home recordings
// To create sheet music of my songs and make it available for free. Your backing will help to make the sheet music accessible to everyone.

I sincerely hope I can give something back for your support in the form of beautiful piano music.
