Future Cults is creating stories and music
14

patrons

Future Cults (alpha) is an evolving ecosystem of stories and music searchable by character on a map.  Stories about the internet and UFOs, about surveillance and broken parents, about lost items as power-ups and shallow film criticism, but mostly normal lives: a little absurd, a little lonely.  Each 'chapter' is accompanied by an original song or two, so one may consider this a literary album.

It's also a desperate attempt to feel less alone.

Since I (I'm Andy!) am producing all the content myself (excluding illustrations), my update schedule is indeterminate.  Once a week would be optimistic.  It takes a lot of time and effort and curling up in the fetal position to write (electronic / alternative r&b / acoustic / ambient) music and prose concurrently.

Everything is free, so your support means everything.  It means that I can one day pay developers and contributing illustrators fairly, which is important to me.  Also I can actually survive on this planet.  Depending on who you ask, that's considered a good thing.

I am originally from Taiwan and I make music as re/search/er. When I find myself in a room with another person, I have a habit of pretending I don't.

Dear Artists:
If you sketch, paint, journal, photograph architecture, design type and graphics, film people, or do anything remotely artistic, I'd love to be your friend and see if we can find a way to work together on this website.
Tiers
Pledge $1 or more per month
  • Access to Patreon feed where I discuss characters and ideas, and answer patron questions if there are any...
  • You're physically attractive and you have a pretty good sense of humor, just letting you know.
Pledge $5 or more per month
  • Patreon feed
  • Music released that month on Bandcamp (at least 3 songs)
  • Writeups/Scans: handwritten lyrics, research photos, discussions about the creative of the project, behind the scenes content, shopping lists, etc.
Pledge $8 or more per month
  • All the above
  • 8 is a lucky number for prosperity and wealth, so this option is strictly for those out there who need a little luck in their lives :)
Pledge $10 or more per month
  • All the above
  • THE DEMYTHIFICATION SHOW (20-40min): an audio collage of the songwriting process full of off-key mumbling and repeating the same phrase for hours, like you're living with a musician, as I attempt to generate material / talking, getting angry at traffic, ambience, and perhaps covers, etc.
Pledge $18 or more per month
  • All the above
  • I shall write you (real name or made up, your band, your organization, product, puppy, anything you're promoting, etc.) into a story of your choice and you will be immortalized in a different color font until the botnet erases the internet.
  • And I'll probably become your friend and message you asking how you are and rambling about the website
  • The satisfaction of knowing you gave me $18 or more out of the goodness of your stunning heart and I love the way you see the world and everyone thinks you're just one-of-a-kind.
