Thank-You Tea Time
$1
per month
Even a small amount is a wonderful contribution.

I will be extremely grateful for your support. 


Also, if you ever come over to my house, I will make you a cup of tea.

Monthly Exclusive Tune
$5
per month
Supporters who pledge $5 or more will get exclusive access to a special original track each month. These will be small experimental tunes in a variety of styles that I call Secret Sketches; basically, Small pieces, works-in-progress, musical jokes, and at-the-piano improvisations that only backers are able to hear. 


Some of these ideas may eventually become bigger things. Hear them first and keep me creating at the $5 tier!

Audio Subscription
$20
per month
At $20 or more, I will send you a digital copy of everything I have the rights to distribute, which includes certain soundtracks, Cats on Mars tracks, and works by collaborative artists who are amenable to sharing. This includes covers, collaborations, and anything else I have the musical rights to. You'll also get the backers-only monthly Secret Sketches as described in the $5 tier.


Basically, consider this tier a permanent pre-order for any new music that I release.

About

Hi everyone! I'm Tommy. I make music as myself (Tommy Pedrini, on scores/projects) and as Cats on Mars (for my personal songwriting projects). You can hear some of my stuff herehere, and here. I've been making music since I was old enough to pull myself up to the piano -- my first song, at age 5, was about the Pasadena Earthquake of 1988 (the song wasn't very good). For as long as I can remember, my dream was to create experiences for people through my music, and especially to bring this passion to the media I love most: games and animation.

Essentially - I create musical experiences. You may have heard me doing some of the following:
  • Writing original songs and performing with a full band as Cats on Mars.
  • Singing, hosting streams, and collaborating with Jake Kaufman/virt/Mint Potion on projects like The Impresario, Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!!, and Wonder Momo, as well as cooking and singing/composing on Mint Potion's inaugural stream, Small Window.
  • Composing for Bandai Namco's ShiftyLook projects Bravoman and Wonder Momo.
  • Composing for Disney Interactive & WayForward Technologies' Disney Descendants game.
  • Composing for indie games, such as James Montagna's Dodge Club Party & Dodge Club Pocket, Team Clyde's Clyde vs the Maze, and the ULTRANIMBUS interactive exhibit Pop Pop Battle J (which I also helped produce).
  • Producing & covering four songs for YSTK, a Yasutaka Nakata-related cover album, creating original zines (and audio to accompany them!), as part of ULTRANIMBUS.
  • DJing Japanese and Korean pop music around L.A. as part of Tune in Tokyo.
  • Running Karaoke Events at conventions all over California, Arizona, & Mexico as part of the Karaoke Kaizokudan.
THE SKINNY, BUT LONG: 2016 through 2018 were transformative, difficult, and very, very enlightening years. Without listing the many good and bad things that happened to me in these two years, I reaffirmed the value of music in helping me (and those I love) keep going, and I want to move that energy forward. I'm pressing ahead on a tremendous backlog of projects and ambitions -- most notably from my songwriting project, Cats on Mars.

I believe with my entire soul that music is essential to our species because it creates a safe space for the listener. The unique power to heal our body and our spirit, to communicate in both implicit and explicit terms, and to experiment with texture as a chef does with flavor -- this is what composers do. Although there are lots of things I enjoy doing (and I do them!), I want to leave a lasting mark on a dying world with your help.

✨☕️🎵🍵✨ If recurring donations aren't your thing, you can also send some one-time support my way via Ko-Fi or PayPal, or purchase my soundtracks and songs.

Studio Upgrades

Anything up to the $150 tier will be carefully budgeted and reinvested into my studio's hardware and software upgrade needs. You'll be able to listen to my music knowing that the piano was tuned, the mic stands didn't fall over, and some cool new sound samples or effects happened because of your contributions.
