Madeline Tasquinis creating music & videos
A vote in the monthly creation poll! At the beginning of each month I post a poll of 9 different creative ideas I've been thinking about. Patrons at this tier level and up are asked to vote for 3 of those projects, and I'll pick what I work on that month from the top 3 projects based on your poll answers.

About Madeline Tasquin
This Patreon thing can be hard to "get" at first. Here's my attempt. Let me know if you have any questions at [email protected] !
The bottom line
Since December 2015, this Patreon page has disappeared the constant financial stress I used to feel as a musician. Thanks to how beautifully flexible and community-minded it is as a means for artists to stop being "starving artists," my page has morphed several times since then to meet the morphing of my creative creatureness :-) Here's how I'm currently using Patreon to make more music and project it into space-time! I hope I can inspire you to join our constellation!
At the beginning of each month I post a Creation Poll to my supporters at the $3 level and above, and they have 3 days to vote for their 3 faves amongst a bunch of creative project ideas that I'm excited about that month. (Can you tell I really love the number 3?) Out of the top 3 vote-getters, I choose the project that's calling to me the loudest to work on that month as my "paid post." I post on progress along the way, and if all goes to plan, I post the finished project to my patrons at the end of the month, along with a thank you to everyone who voted in the poll that helped inspire it! Once I've gotten feedback from my patrons, I may post that project as a public thing, or I may take it back to the drawing board or tweak it some more based on your feedback. Those paid posts collect pledges that my patrons have signed up for, from $1 and up per thing!
How does Patreon help Maddy?
From my perspective, as a multipotentialite, musician, life coach, and generally creative weirdo, it's GREAT to have the input to help me choose and focus my superpowers on things that I know my patrons will love! Having a monthly creative budget to work with lifts me to new heights in increasing the reach of my message to humanity!
How is Patreon fun for patrons?
From my patrons' perspectives, it's awesome to know they're collectively forming a creative budget and helping me spread my music and message into the world, and it's also fun to be a part of the creative team by helping me choose the project to work on next and offering feedback on behind-the-scenes progress updates. And of course there's the PERKS. At the $10-per-thing level and above, you and I get to hang in 1-on-1 Music Coaching OR Life Coaching Sessions. At the $5 level, I'll send you a handwritten postcard to thank and welcome you :-)

We find all these reasons to live.
Ticking, ticking, ticking like a timebomb /

"How is it so complicated to understand me?
I simply see the beauty that lives inside everyone...
What a pity to pick just one to love,
when I could love everyone?"

"When in the winter, slow is the river, I keep my hands, turned up to the Sun.
Life is preparing an oak of proportions unseen to the acorn, though they are one.
And in the image I am seeking, there is a wisdom my eye cannot touch.
Life is preparing an oak of proportions unseen to the acorn, though they are one."
