Won't you join me on this EPIC JOURNEY??? Huh. Well, hi. Ant here. Sorry - I cringe at the lingo du jour. I've never thought of my life in rock as a journey, certainly not an epic one. I mean, I have epic aspirations, certainly, but I'd never take lay that trip on you guys without at least a heavy dose of guilt and irony!  Natural Causes has been delivered and I'm well into the next records, in the messy, always-recording way that I work. There's the alleged third part of the alleged trilogy that so far consists of Magic Act and Natural Causes. Part 3 is now titled Berliner Grotesk and it contains a blob of stompy piano waltzes and rejects from the Disaster on Sandwich Island musical. Pretty much what you'd expect, no? There's also the amusing Kenny vs Giacomo y Carolina album in the works. Most certainly, without my input or awareness, Antronica 3 is willing itself into being. I think my synth-pop records make themselves while I'm asleep.

All of this is to say that there's always more Antmusik in the works. I've done 6 (???!!!) crowd funding campaigns, and they've all made it, by the seat of someone's pants in some cases. But I can tell you, whatever Chipper Grin might sit above my chin, the whole Kickstarter thing is not something I ever feel much good about. It takes a deep toll on my soul and I worry that it's a drain on the enthusiasm of my fans and friends. That's why I'm looking to try out this PLATFORM for a change. I seem to have a small gang of supporters who come through every time, and new peeps who chime in with support if only out of curiosity! Instead of the bulldozer rampage that crowd funding feels like, I'd like to treat OUR world of Patreon like it's a tricycle in a shopping mall on Sunday. I'll try out new songs "live in (online) concert," but only for YOU. I'll test the new-song waters in YOUR bathtub. Demos of non-greatest hits? Alternate mixes and dubs? Ting? All YOURS. Cover songs? You want them Bowie tunes? Them Beatles (Sorry, Joe...)? Maybe Patreon is where, but again, only for YOU. You get it. All the fun of getting paid to send out FREE stuff  and and none of the coal mining agony of the Artist Unqualified To Mime.

In simpler terms, your support helps me release albums, make videos, fix gear, tour, and afford sandwiches, and in return, you get exclusive access to brand-new songs and a peek behind the scenes at how it all happens. Music has been my "job" forever, and I'm trying to find new ways of keeping things rolling forward. "Tap into the..." You Know! And, gracias!


How many things will you release a month?
Two or three, to start, probably. You'll only be billed once a month, though, for the set amount that you choose, not every time I release something.

What kinds of "things," anyway?
Demos of new songs, dubs and alternate mixes, videos, covers (by request/suggestion?)

Can I stop donating if I want to?

Well, yes! But we hope you'll stick around. That being said, it's easy to to cancel any time.

Do I have to pay in US dollars? Do I have to pledge the set amounts?
The site shows American Numbers, but you can pledge from wherever you are, and it will automatically be converted. If you'd like to customiSe your amount, you can write in whatever you like at checkout.

Will Anton be doing any more dancing videos in the future?

"Concentrate and ask again." For now, absolutely free of charge...
