About Scott Buckley

The world is full of crazy-talented people telling their stories - be it through film, games, animation or design. I want to help them by providing the soundtrack to those stories, with a library of original cinematic music made freely available under Creative Commons Attribution

However, releasing music for free is a huge, experimental risk. The nature of CC-BY also means I can't claim traditional performance royalties from its use - an income source from which most composers make much of their total income. 

However, generous support from patrons helps make this model of music release sustainable, and will help me to continue growing the library, and making the best music I can. It also means I can make a living from doing something I love, and that is really something special.

How does Patreon work?
By becoming my patron, you are pledging to contribute a specific amount of money per month. The money you contribute goes towards supporting what I do: creating cinematic, high-quality CC-BY music. This can be cancelled at any time, and you are under no obligation to contribute more than you can afford. 

Can I cancel my pledge?
Of course! You can cancel your ongoing pledge at any time. I completely understand that circumstances change - you are under no obligation from me.
What will my money be used for?
Your contributions will go towards the ongoing costs of sample library subscriptions, software updates and web hosting - all of which make it possible for me to write, produce and distribute my music freely for you all to use. My goals (on the left of screen) will update to show how close your donations are to making that a reality.

If your patron contributions continue to increase, I can start investing in some new libraries - expanding my toolset to improve the quality of the music I can produce, and I will update my goals accordingly. The dream is to make a living from releasing free music - a paradox I hope I can achieve some day!

Your pledges and donations will go towards making the best music I can possibly make, as quickly as possible - so you all can enjoy the benefits of useful creative commons music for your stories - in whatever form you tell them.

How often do you release new music?
I aim to release 2-3 new tracks each month - sometimes more!

What if I can't afford to pledge on a monthly basis, or at all?
If you find yourself wanting to contribute towards my costs, but don't want to continue paying each month, you can consider making a one-off donation here:

Alternatively, one of the best contributions you can make is simply enjoying my music, sharing it with your friends and colleagues, or using my music in your project. The more exposure the library gets in the wider community, the better! 
$500 - reached! per month
I can start reinvesting into better sample libraries to help me make even better music! I'll release a process video each month showing you my new additions, and how I'll use them to help the library grow.
