Make Weird Music was started in 2014 with a mission to expand the creative horizons of people like us who really love music. This mission has led us to incredible and unusual artists through fun, insightful content that you just won’t find anywhere else.
With our community’s support, we’ve produced concerts, free public lectures, deep conversations, telepathic interviews, one-of-a-kind gear showcases, and beautiful musical moments. We are honored to elevate the world’s most inspired musicians and shine a light on their work.
A few private donors and I have funded this project from day one while a growing number of generous people (like you) have asked how to support the project. Well, we're ready to take you up on your offer.
Whether you’re able to give or not won’t change how we operate; donations will only lead to better, more exciting free content for us all to enjoy.
Thank you so much for considering a donation. It means so much to me and has such a huge impact on what we are able to do together.
Supporting MWM here on Patreon will get you access to promotional giveaways, early access to content, free swag, and more.
Since 2014, we've interviewed and featured the work of Steve Vai, Homer Flynn (The Residents), Michael Manring, Jeff Berlin, Mike Keneally, Jan Zehrfeld (Panzerballett), Kerry Minnear and Gary Green and Malcolm Mortimore (Gentle Giant), Paul Hanson (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones), Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Ben Levin and Courtney Swain (Bent Knee), Teddy Kumpel (Joe Jackson), Andy West (Dixie Dregs), and many others. The interviews (and all other content) are available in 1080p video and via podcast in their entirety for free.
We produce our own artwork, provide complete interview transcriptions, film and edit all our content, design and develop our unique website, yada yada yada. It’s a ton of work and we are truly honored to do it.
You can help in other ways, too! If you can't donate money, we could use your help in many of our efforts. From social media posts to discovering and sharing new music to listening to submissions to providing contact information for targeted artists. We also try to do everything with open source and produce our work with free or open source software.
