About Haig Papazian

Thank you for being here, and thank you for reading this.

I’m Haig Papazian (aka @haigpapa) - a Lebanese Armenian artist, composer, storyteller, and architect - born in Beirut, and currently based out of New York with Beau, my cat. Some of you know my music Mashrou Leila, might have read this Op-Ed I penned, or this essay... or heard of space-time tuning machine, a cross disciplinary musical project I'm currently working on. And if you came across my page by chance, you can find out more about my works here...

Your support will give me an opportunity develop my work, and at the same time give you access to my new artistic and musical adventures: from archival, and historical research, to processes of developing, designing, hacking, and building DIY electronic sound making machines that I will use for upcoming performances. This will also be an opportunity to get an inside look at the ups and downs of my creative process, especially as someone whose work has been  in-between disciplines and rarely focused on one. I'll talk about the challenges I face, the 3 am ideas I get, and give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how everything is coming together. I’ll also share with you all things that inspire me, music I'm listening to, books I’m reading, films I’m watching, and the gear I have and want. I am hoping most of the processes, research, images, sounds, and words from the project would eventually find a home online to share with everyone, that's why regardless of the tier, everyone gets access to the same content.

If you're already here, you probably know the basics of Patreon. If you’re new to this, think of it as a monthly subscription to support my work. You pledge to donate a few dollars each month so I can build my projects and machines, develop my research, and create many smaller projects that will inform the world making processes of  my work. If enough people make the pledge, I’ll be able to do this full time, regularly, get access to healthcare, and be able to support myself and help my family in Beirut, and try to pay it forward to other artists who I'll be inviting to collaborate with on these projects.

Thank you
