Friends old and new, welcome.  I invite you to join me in this graceful and strange story that is my life.  Any level of support is greatly valued in the beginning of building my Patreon community, I'd love to stay in touch even if you can only offer a few bucks.  I'm overflowing  with stuff to share:

As some of you know, I have released a few albums around the globe which were critically praised. It has been way too long since I released an album, I have been in the throes of much other work. It's now time to reconnect with my scattered global audience and unleash whole new volumes of material I have been developing in the background for many years now.

I have literally over 80 compositions and songs sketched and demo'd, to be refined into distinct albums as Function EnsembleMatthew Liam Nicholson and AT / ALL over the coming year.  I would love to be more interactive with friends & fans of my work throughout this process via this noble portal.  It is my dream to be free to work on these musical visions and begin to steadily release strong work in 2019.

My patrons will help unlock the necessary time and expenses associated with the intensive work of  completing, mixing, production and publicity of these new summary works.  This is largely why I have put out music so infrequently over the last 20 years, having to spend at least the other half of my life earning the money to pay for the making of the music and getting it out there.  

I'm bulging pregnant with these new LPs, and need some loving help from the village if I am to rightly birth these high vibe babes.  It's simply not happening on merely my own freelance rodent wheel of chasing paying work, though hey I'm almost paying my rent as a composer, anything is possible :-) 

The degree to which I can gather my supporters here over time, may be the degree to which I am free to make the volumes of magic music I dream of, given the time and resources, and deliver it to you hot off the baking tray.  I very much appreciate the opportunity to gather one's supporters here and create a grass roots economy, so it begins.

A little about me and what I do:  I'm a songwriter, producer and recording artist with a few musical groups (Function Ensemble, AT / ALL, Infinite Everything).   I compose music for film, tv, media and fine art.  My research into sound healing and sound art is beginning to converge and I am as of late composing healing sound baths, which I recently begun to perform.

I'm a community organizer, living co-operatively in the cultural Mecca of Los Angeles and stirring up some really wonderful happenings bringing people together (concerts, groups, online platform, plenty, just ask). It's my prayer to bring all these gifts together for the upliftment of the world around us - manifesting economy between people and real exchange in relationships. I am also learning the basics of video art, making a range of short pieces to document all this.

This past year I composed scores for my first two full length feature films, and recently won an award for original score for the first one. (Conscious Light, a documentary film about the remarkable radical Spiritual Master Adi Da, who I was very fortunate to spend time around during His lifetime)  The second film CRSHD is an indie comedy coming of age film about college girls and social media.  

With your loving support, may 2019 be a most fruitful breakthrough period of completing and releasing my own works.  I promise you'll be glad to have been a part of making this music happen.  Honestly, after playing music since childhood, I only now feel prepared to do my best work - that my entire previous life has been preparation for the work yet to come.

Please don't hesitate to contact me about anything - please do tell me what you would dig to see or receive here!  I am keen to give all I have to the Whole, as old pattern crumbles and this great new human collective of sanity and beauty emerges in the world.  In some basic sense it is the anchoring of the Light in this troubled realm, that is the real work of my art and life.  May our exchange be entirely mutually inspiring - a mandala of respect, inspiration and support. Please join me on this epic creative journey at this critical time of great potential.

To the Light in all of you!

Very much love,

Matthew Liam Nicholson
