Music by Gestalt

Music by Gestalt

is creating Cool things! Music for collaborative projects, and music alone.

How does this work?

Our Patreon is "Project-based," which means no monthly subscription, no cancellation fees, no recurring charges. Rather, we announce specific large-scale projects at least 60 days in advance via email and Patreon posts. This means that a patron's payment is processed on a set date when the project is "created." And only on that date. It's a one-time payment.

After that, nothing happens until we announce a new project at least 60 days in advance, giving you plenty of time to decide whether you'd like to edit/change/suspend your contribution for that upcoming project. You can edit your project contribution amount at any time via the Patreon. If you are charged for a project you didn't want to support, refunding is no problem. And, with no loss of love you can cancel your membership at any time with no fees. It's totally risk-free. If any issues come up, shoot me (Tim) an email at [email protected].

What is the current Patreon Project?

Our current Patreon Project is an E.P, to be recorded in a single session. It's charge date is September 1st. About 30 minutes of original music, four tracks in total, with violin (Shalini Vijayan, you've heard her on Star Wars films) joining the trio for one chart. Tim Johnson (piano), Miller Wrenn (bass), and Ben Scanlan (drums). Ian Stahl recording/mixing. Mastering and album artwork are TBA pending fundraising. We are hoping to distribute physical copies by October. 

You can make a one-time payment.
That's right! Cancelling your membership is totally easy, just log in after the charge date (September 1st, 2019 for the current project) and cancel. And, if you forget to cancel before the next project (announced well in advance, approximately 1 project every 4-6 months), we can return it no problem. 

How is the money used?

Our "Patreon Projects" are large-scale recording projects. Be it an album, an EP, or maybe to help a film collaboration. The Patreon funds are used for recording, mixing, mastering, studio-use, publishing, advertising, and anything else directly related to our art-making. As nearly all of our content is free online (YouTube, Spotify, etc...), the Patreon is a way for our listeners to help us make more art for everyone. We announce and describe the projects at least 60-days in advance –– with just the right amount of reminders and updates –– giving you time to decide whether you'd like to edit/change/suspend your contribution for that upcoming project.

Has the Patreon worked in the past?

Absolutely! Our first album, titled "Music by Gestalt," received $1,244.30 in support from our Patreon! That's amazing! The project was about $6,000 in total. For this upcoming project, we are hoping to raise $3,000, and have already raised $729.27 from the Patreon as of July 1st, 2019! We can do it!!!

Where is all my stuff?

The cool colorful "Featured tags" on the left side of the page (scroll down a bit if you don't see them); those are your go-to for getting around on the online content. "Sheet Music" for PDF's of the charts, for example.

Lastly, we keep you updated after the charge date on the project final steps. Printing, artwork, publishing... you are the first to know exactly when you can expect the physical recordings to be mailed to you, that is one of our highest priorities. However, please understand that it takes time.

And if there's anything else, or if we've forgotten something, just ask. Feel free to contact via Patreon or email: [email protected]
