M. D. Friedman is creating music, videos, poetry, art & joy masquerading as chaos

I have been singing the blues and playing harmonica for around half a century now. I currently perform and record regularly with six different Colorado bands, primarily as a harmonica player, songwriter and vocalist. Over the last five years I have appeared on over 20 albums ranging from music for small children to experimental electronic sound sculpting, and I have added Theremin and Native American Flute into my arsenal for spontaneous music composition.

I am interested is sharing my music with anyone who finds joy or comfort in it. It is my hope with Patreon to create community around my creative efforts, give back to my supporters and the larger community, and at the same time, reach out to potential collaborators. Creating music, art and poetry is what I live for. I have been recently doing classes at various locations teaching harmonica as an aide to better breathing and health. I am willing to share what I have learned with any other harmonica players interested in doing this work. It has been some of the most rewarding work I have ever done around my music. (See the Intro Video above if you are interested; it is a clip from a local news show about the program.)

I am also pretty deep into poetry and spoken word. I have published five books of my own poems, and my poetry has appeared in numerous poetry publications, both in print and online. I run a small poetry press called Liquid Light Press (www.liquidlightpress.com), and we publish "poetry for the heart." Our sister site, the popular Internet Poets' Cooperative (www.poetscoop.org), offers readers unlimited free viewing and/or listening of over 30 poetry e-books, 50 videos from the Poets' Co-op TV Show and over 1000 mp3 audio files from the old Poets' Co-op Open Reading Series. My new genre digital poetry represents the artistic fusion of all my creative pursuits combining original poetry, sound art, images and video into a single poetic experience.

In addition, I have been making psychoactive music with healing intent for three years or so now and have composed and recorded over one hundred tracks including a full symphony for solo Theremin called the Symphony of the Heart. Due to the shamanistic nature of this music, I would like to make it available to anyone who might find it helpful, regardless of their means. I have now expanded this work to include both video and fine art.

I am frankly just hoping to continue my work and recover some of my expenses for recording and painting. I am also interested in creating custom pieces (audio and/or visual) for both personal healing as well as collaborating with artistic film makers to provide soundtracks. Please see www.cranialsacred.com to learn more about all of my intentionally psychoactive creations.

The online gateway to all my music projects is www.maddogharp.com. My personal website, www.mdfriedman.com, offers access to all my creative pursuits.

This what I live for.  I appreciate any support or other kindness my listeners can offer to help me continue my work and look to my fans for my inspiration. The creation of community and personal connection is the overriding intent of all my work. Please help me get my music community going. I am hoping to create a collaborative dialog around my music. Please consider supporting me and helping to blur the lines between listening and creating.

Patreon allows people who love what I do to support my creations by making a monthly pledge. You may pledge as little or as much as you like. You can cancel your pledge or change your pledge amount at any time.
