At this level, your interest extends beyond the creative process itself, and moves into an area where you would really like to know more about the entire journey of creation.  You'll get all the previous two tier's content and in addition:

Join us on a journey of music production, attending solo recording sessions at our studios right through to live orchestral recording sessions.
There'll also be a live monthly one hour Q&A where you can pose your questions to us.
We'll also give one personalized copy of our current soundtrack (min 6 months subscription.)  And hopefully to whet your whistle further, we'll run a poll once a year to decide on a piece of music to compose and write a bespoke piece to your brief.
  • Exclusive behind the scenes videos and photos

About Bob & Barn

Let’s make an album together! We are asking our followers to help us produce an independent album for you all. Let’s do it together….

Have you ever dreamed of being a composer? Have you ever been engaged by music tracks in videogames, movies, documentaries? You will be part of our journey and you will see how it works!

We've been writing music professionally since 1990 for Amiga videogames such as Swiv, Aladdin and maybe you've seen our ugly mugs on the deluxe disc of the recent MediEvil remake in 2019. Maybe you have also heard our music on the series Dead Pixels... We've done almost everything (though neither of us has ever Morris danced I'm happy to reveal.)

Well: are you curious to know how we go about doing what we do? Then join us here and we'll share our insights with you during the creation of this album. We'll give tips and tricks on how to work with producers and directors of different levels of knowledge and how to cope with each scenario. How to manage a huge list of assets via a music journal and how to be organised with file naming to avoid problems in the final mix. We'll also share some behind-the-scenes footage wherever possible to give a sense of what it's like to do this every day - warts and all!! All served with a helping of our English silver-tongued cavalier approach and Great British nonchalance. We thank you in advance for your interest and support and look forward to sharing this journey with you (and of course the album itself). Big digital love from us to you.

FYI, Patreon always bills on the 1st of every month, so if you join towards the end of a month, you will be immediately charged, but then you may get another bill soon after. If this is not agreeable, please wait for the start of the new month to join.
Goals
2 of 2,000 patrons
If we reached 2000 patrons for two months it would allow us to invest in a mobile composition setup, enabling us to work away from our home studios.  It would be a phenomenal development for our business as this would mean that we could try to build new relationships in other countries (Hollywood is a long held dream for us.)  We'd catalogue the speccing of the full set up and our decisions for choosing the things we do, and also show how we connect it together and get things up and running.
