I'm a man who loves to make music! I challenged myself to make a song a month, and after a crazy year of showing myself that I could actually do it, I've decided to make it an official challenge on Patreon.

I'm here to show my music to anyone who's interested and to hopefully get constructive comments and criticisms along the way.

Monthly Song:
The goal of this patreon is for me to make a song a month and share it with everyone here. The types of songs I make usually have a basis in piano, but the genre can definitely vary.  Sometimes It feels pleasant to make a simple piano piece that's beautiful and quiet, and sometimes I really like to fill the song with instruments I've not tried using before.

Every song I make I upload to  my soundcloud, so it's the place to go to get a feel for the kind of music I make.

Also, I'm open to taking suggestions on what kind of song you want to hear next, so just comment away and I'll see about picking a suggested theme for the next song

For those who are interested & those of you who support at the $10+ tier:
I use various tools to make my music depending on the type of song I'm making and which program I feel will provide the best environment for that song. The fun part, is that I get plenty of different sounds and a different musical feeling from each DAW. The downside is that the project files I upload will be in different programs depending on which I made it in.

The DAWs I've used include: 
  • Garage Band
  • Cakewalk Music Creator 6 & 7
  • Sonar
  • Ableton
  • FL Studio
  • Samplitude
  • Logic Pro X

In addition to these programs, I also use Vocaloid 3 (IA) to add lyrics to some of the songs.  Since I have the Japanese version of IA you get to hear my attempts at translating the original lyrics to Japanese, for better or worse~

If there is particular interest in seeing a project file from a certain program, I'll try to make sure I use that program for the next song. I know I've learned quite a bit from seeing completed songs before and it really helps when trying to learn about a particular DAW.

*Note: while I can provide the project files, I can't provide all the plug-ins and sound packs that I use with it. The midi should remain intact, but the audio won't load for the tracks that use packs that you don't own as well.

Commissions:
If you've ever dreamed of having a song written just for you, or want music to go with a game or project you're working on, I'm open to talking about commissions. But as a general rule, I'll only take one commission at a time to help ensure quality and timely responses to feedback and suggestions.

The price of a commission is negotiable but generally starts at around $50.  The complexity and length of a song are taken into consideration, but the final cost is never paid until you are satisfied with the job :-)

Also, if for some reason you haven't already, I suggest listening to my previous works first to determine if my style of music is something you're interested in~

Now you really want to show some extra support! In addition to getting a download link for every song, I'll also provide a download link to the project file itself. This is perfect for you if you're interested in seeing the inner workings (or as I like to call it - chaos) of my projects. It's also great if you're interested in tweaking or experimenting with one of my songs.
