Hello Everyone!

My name is Darren Curtis, or some of you may know me as "DesperateMeasurez" from various parts of the internet. Those of you who are already familiar with me will know that I've been releasing royalty free music for your projects for the past few years. And those of you who didn't know that... well now you do!

The royalty free music I release is available to use however you wish. YES, it is free to use in commercial projects of any kind! Whether you're a filmmaker, a game developer, Youtuber, advertiser or even just a hobbyist, this music is here for you! All I ask in return is to be credited somewhere for the music as "Darren Curtis."

The music in the above video is a sample reel of royalty free pieces I've made. All are available for download via www.darrencurtismusic.com.

Please Note: It's extremely important to me that you know you Do Not have to sign up for Patreon to use my music! Whether or not I receive any support, I will still be putting out royalty free music for everyone to use however they like. I've been creating commercially free music for the last few years and I will continue to do so.

However, should anyone choose to support my efforts I will be extremely grateful. You will be allowing me to spend more time creating music for you, which I hope helps and enhances your creations! Think of this as a tip jar of sorts. If you enjoy the content I produce and feel it's worth a little money every month, that's awesome! If you do decide to support my music production, then thank you so much! You're far too kind!

My Purpose For Patreon: Getting Your Involvement (Let Me Know What To Make)!

With a platform like Patreon, I feel I can get involvement from people who are looking for royalty free music so that I can create pieces that will be helpful and useful to your needs.

Via certain reward tiers, you have the ability to vote on what I produce next. This way I increase the chances that I'm making music you will find useful for your creative endeavors!

The voting process will be relatively simple. At the beginning of each month I will publish an unlisted Youtube video for qualifying reward tiers to hear some work-in-progress pieces. I will start a poll on Patreon for you to cast your vote for the track you want finished. I'll allow roughly 2 weeks for voting to make sure everyone has enough time. Whichever tracks receives the most votes will be completed by the end of the month.


What do you compose?

I compose a variety of things! I tried to cram a few in the video above. From piano solos, to horror tracks, orchestral arrangements, 16 bit game music, song beats etc. Who knows what I'll try next?

How Many Tracks Will Be Released Per Month?

As of now, I will do my best to release 2 new pieces every month. However, my schedule can sometimes become busy on extremely short notice so I may miss that mark here and there. If I am fortunate enough to garner support, your extreme generosity will be used to allow for more time to make more pieces. As certain goals are reached the number of tracks I can put out each month will rise as I'll be able to afford more time to work on them.

One Final Note

Not everything I make is royalty free. I spend some time doing custom commission work for films and games when it's available. I've also recently started producing instrumental albums purely for listening. My first and only so far was "Come Play" which I released last year for Halloween. I hope to have more soon. Any questions or inquiries, feel free to send a message and I'll get to you as soon as I'm able!

Any information about my music can be found on my website, Youtube, Soundcloud, Facebook, CDbaby or Bandcamp.

Peace!

Cool Cat
$1 or more per month 1 patron
You're supporting me and the creation of my royalty free music, which makes you a super-awesome, Cool Cat! They should make a movie about your life because you ARE that cool. Thanks so much! 


* You'll get access to the patron-only feed where you'll be notified every time I make a new piece available for download or leave a post about upcoming productions and tracks that win the votes, etc.


* Also at this level, each new music track I produce will somehow magically sound better to your ears. No lie!

Cool Cat 2: The Sequel
$3 or more per month 3 patrons
You are so cool that the producers made the sequel to "Cool Cat" and guess who they picked to star in it? That's right! YOU! Thank you so much!


 * Access to the patron-only feed obviously! I wouldn't leave ya out!  


* VOTE on what I make! Choose from different work-in-progress tracks I'll have available for you to hear in a sample video (See link to sample video in my main Patreon Text). 


I'll publish a poll on Patreon visible only to this tier and higher at the beginning of the month and whichever piece gets the most votes will be completed! Thanks so much for the support!


P.S. Don't feel bad if the track you voted for didn't win. If the vote ends up being super close and there is a popular second place contender, I'll probably make that as an extra track somewhere down the line!

Cool Cat 3: The Jury Is In
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
You're a franchise star at this point. You've been in 3 major movies and you can pretty much write your own ticket. You must feel like you're on top of the world.


* Everything in the prior tiers is now yours too! Yes, that means voting!


* You will have a full month's (30 days) early access to every royalty free piece I produce. You will be free to use the pieces before anyone else can. Private download links will be provided to your tier via Patreon's feed.


After 30 days is up the music will be released to the public like normal!


 P.S. Don't feel bad if the track you voted for didn't win. If the vote ends up being super close and there is a popular second place contender, I'll probably make that as an extra track somewhere down the line! 


Thank you very much! You're great!

Cool Cat 4: The Producer
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
You've decided you're more hands on and want some creative power for the franchise. It's not enough just to be on screen. You need to be in there pulling strings and getting things done!


*All prior reward tiers have fallen into your pocketsess!


*Double voting power. After casting your vote in the monthly Patreon Poll, write me and tell me which track you voted for. I will add an additional tally for you once the vote is finished!


Thank you! You're far too kind!

Goals
$54 of $100 per month
At this point the absolute minimum number of tracks I release will be 2 per month no matter how busy I get! Any extra time I muster will be used to surpass that monthly minimum when I'm able!

Thanks so much, ya crazy, music-lovin' peeps!
