I make mostly digital works about the unexpected connections between things


Hey there! My name is Mike Rugnetta. When people at parties ask me what I do for a living, I have a hard time answering. Normally I say "I make internet things".

I write essays and make videos. I write music, and computer programs. I also write computer programs that write music. I make performances, and I give talks. I also make a podcast called Reasonably Sound; that has its own (per episode) patreon!

I'm hoping this Patreon will be a way for me to pull together the many different types of other things I make under one umbrella, in a way that allows them to inform one another, and which builds a context they may not otherwise share outside of my own brain. And I also hope that it'll allow us to work together to find out what sorts of things should be in the world, but aren't.

Thanks for your support. Let's make some stuff together. <3

p.s. This Patreon is a continuation of some work that began over at Kickstarter's soon-to-be-shuttered Drip. Over the coming weeks, I'll be migrating most of the posts on that drip to this Patreon, so please pardon the dripdust while things get [re]built.

p.p.s This patreon charges "up front", which means "New patrons will be charged the day they become a patron, then on the 1st of the month going forward." As far as I understand, drip does rolling charges throughout the month, so if you're coming from there, and watching your budgets, just keep this in mind!
Tiers
🎧
$3 or more per month

There's a private podcast feed, with audio versions of the essays I  write, as well as ongoing experimental music projects. You'd get  access to it.

🔎
$5 or more per month

Weekly updates on what I'm working on, and how. Early access to work in progress drafts of essays and video scripts, plus additional things which wont otherwise see the light of day. Also one (1) physical, handwritten postcard sent (worldwide) within 1 calendar year of your joining. You can also opt to have a postcard scan if you want. 

👻
$12 or more per month

In situations where my work requires a random number (and it often does) I will use names from this tier as a seed for the process which generates it. Your spiritual essence will pervade my work.

☕️
$70 or more per month

Cold brew  iced coffees at the coffee shop closest to my apartment are $3.50 and I get one – on average – about 20 days out of every month (even in the winter). So, basically, you'd be fully funding my coffee habit. If anything fun happens at the coffee shop, or I get any particularly good ideas on my walk to, or from, you'll be the first to know about it.
