Rab Townsendis creating Music, Photography, and Videos
Access to my (probably a little inconsistent) weekly composition project, where share some kind of musical creation every week, no matter how crappy it is.
Also included in this tier will be my ongoing black and white portrait series.
About Rab Townsend
In terms of photography, my shtick, if you want to call it that, is expressive, non-sexual nudes, in colourful lighting. Thematically, I like the concepts of duality, of voids, of transformation, of freedom. I try to limit interaction with the audience's gaze, focusing instead on emotive exploration and figure work. I accept all bodies. I believe in highlighting the beauty in the real, by cloaking it in the surreal or unreal.
In terms of music, I am primarily a pianist, though I play other instruments. I tend to write soft, low-tempo, melancholy ballads, with a dreamy aspect to their chord progressions.
You might enjoy my music if you are:
- looking to fall asleep to something soft and melancholy
- crying into a pillow
- feeling resigned about past failures
- someone who really likes ninth chords.
- Someone who likes musicals about failed relationships and malevolent snowstorms.
Subscribing means you get to see and hear stuff nobody else gets to see.
For the most part, I am posting music, trying to come up with one or two pieces of music per week. Sometimes those have words, sometimes they're fleshed out recordings, sometimes they're piano solos. The songs are at the lowest tier. You may get to see my progress as a song I write is completed before your eyes, piece by piece.
I post photosets as my obsessive compulsive need to re-edit each older set allows, but for the most part, I'm not going to start posting photosets on the regular until I have patrons signing up for the tiers where photos are going to go.
If I come up with something big, like a video tutorial or a finished song, I'll incorporate it into one of the existing tiers, and let everyone know in advance, so they can change their pledge for the month.
