THE FUTURE ISN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE

How Patreon works. This platform radically simplifies the value exchange for artists through a mechanism of micro-patronage. It is a form of crowd-sourcing - Where all sparks meet!

It combines many individual's ongoing monthly pledges into a source of monthly cash flow for the artist/content generator. You can pledge $1 or more at any time and stop or modify your pledge at any time.

In real terms, I am suggesting you  will be able to freely access and share my past and future content online in return for an ongoing monthly pledge. You will also receive a range of personalised interactions (see very bottom). This might be free entrance to live performances, workshops or other surprises - In other words we are tailoring all that I am, do and produce into an open resource in exchange for a consolidated source of regular income. A new middle ground opens up. Naturally, I already hear some of you saying! Others may be saying why? 

WHICH WAY TO WHAT


We live in a world where the financial system is central. In real terms this means, like everybody else, I have to interface daily with this operating system. I am constantly searching for a way to merge my life-blood-being and this money system sustainably, without further dividing myself. I am here to get clear about our schizophrenia. The money party is over. We've inherited a nuclear hangover. The Patreon micro-patronage model opens up possibilities on this 'adventure'.

TRANS MEDIA CREATURE

I mainly spend my time gardening words; sowing and growing songs that I share worldwide. My entire lived experience inspires and informs my creations. Conventionally I would be labelled 'artist'; mostly 'poet'. However I have chosen not to limit myself to just being a so-called 'artist' or identifying with the tag of 'artist', 'poet' or 'musician' even though these names largely point to what I do (see my street credentials below).

In the context of Southern Africa where I live and create since 1988, I have found that my writing, singing and performances function on many levels. Yes, what I do entertains, but it also integrates and overlaps with education, restoration and collaborations outside the music and art industries - inspiration is education. (see the video above).

RHYTHM IS OUR MOTHER TONGUE, WE ARE RHYTHM DRIVEN

The many facets of my vocation interplay naturally, however this seamlessness is fragmented because I always have to interface with money. This requires me to compartmentalise myself and operate as a series of products. Through this process over many years, I have had to adapt to sporadic money patterns that fluctuate irrespective of my otherwise seamless flow of creative output.

It hasn't taken me long to learn that just because what I create isn't always compatible with the money system, it doesn't mean that I do not have value to offer. Many people have in fact told me the opposite; that my work is priceless.

The challenge is that there are no global applications that allow people to value the interrelatedness of all that I have to offer as a creative, in return for a stable income. 


I have gradually identified what I would like from money; a value-exchange that considers the range of what I do as a whole, in return for a source of money that is an ongoing flow rather than a fluctuation of start and stop chunks. Patreon is a platform that allows me to structure this kind of interactive.

SOMPA'TING A BUBBLA'TING

And it's better than our best thinking. This Patreon model also starts un-bundling the mind-set of products and selling/buying. We are so used to exchanging money for a product or service, that we want everything to fit into a 'product' or 'service' category. Some things just don't! And even when they do, to put a monetary value on them is sometimes incomprehensible, uncomfortable or impossible. We are sharing the same mystery!

WITH YOUR PLEDGES I CAN MAKE COMMON CENTS

With this setup I will have the stability to create and complete new content and also serve communities with workshops, collaborations and performances with less admin and without necessarily having to administrate a charge. It even creates the possibility that I can come to you wherever that may be. Your pledges will also allow others who may not normally have the means, to access me online or in person - Let's shrink bigger!

Amongst other things I am in the process of completing two new albums: one, a collaborative songwriting project with a drummer and other guest artists. The other, a solo album of guitar and voice with no words. I would also love to create videos with multi media artists. In order to finish these projects I need to pay the professional musicians and producers involved. This is becoming possible through this Patreon portal.

LETS'S GO 60/60

Your pledges are you voting in the changes you want to see in the world. So vote poetry! The longer you pledge for, the more you facilitate the possibility of a change. Pass the cushion get the treasure off your chest.

So what is it that I do that is so worthy of your money? Below are links that illustrate in detail how I spend my time as a slam poet, singer songer, guitarist, performer, recording artist, indie publisher, visual artist, collaborator, researcher, educator, activist, volunteer, instigator and joybot! The root of what I do is tinkering with words and rhythm that together soothe, clarify and incite insight - I do hope that my word-strings bring you buckets of laughter too! I also offer various custom workshops that allow you too to experience and engage with these processes.

You can already access most of my songs and poems without charge here:
