About Preston Klik
The sound-scapes I'm birthing have a gorgeous semi-classical feel, with sweeping dynamics, ebbs and flows, and a mellow world-meditation ambience. Each is a journey in consciousness, a minor revelation. They're cinematic, timeless, life-affirming. They're full of wonder, light, emotion, and imagination. They feed the soul. (see FAQ below)
Here's what beta-listeners say...
• "Each song is a rich creation engaging multiple senses. Cinematic, evoking movement and story and bliss."
• "I LOVE classical music. I don't know what kind of music I just heard, but it was stunning. I'm speechless."
• "Like woah, my neck hairs are sticking up! Unspeakably beautiful!"
Recently I got seriously inspired, and I've been spending countless hours creating the best music of my life at my home studio Chapel Of Sacred Sounds. This music is yearning to be birthed. I feel the stretchmarks! I sometimes shake with excitement! I SO want/need to continue creating, but the hours I'm giving make it unsustainable. This Patreon page is my attempt to nurture my Calling, to make it sustainable.
Patreon is a monthly subscription service which connects artists & supporters in a reciprocal energy exchange. It's an excellent environment to help creative people like me share their talents with others. That's where you come in. IF you choose, your support will allow & encourage me to be creative Every. Single. Day - something I can't afford to do now. I love that you'll receive and be immersed in each new sonic dream-scape I make, feeling the heart-centered honey-colored liquid-love vibrations!
I invite you to become a member of my Patreon page. In this crazy world, with the seeds we plant, we're making our very own "good news story", an aural oasis of vibrant beauty, to keep hope alive. I'll work my ass off to make it worth your while. Promise.
My music needs heart-centered listeners like you! (It's not really music if there's no ears to hear it, right?) Your Patreon pledge will allow me to spend more time with my Calling - my Passion. BONUS: I'll get to share my music with you every month. Hooray!
♥️ HOW PATREON WORKS: It's really easy to subscribe. Just choose a membership level; Sign up; Add a payment method; Get benefits! (see FAQ)
♥️ REWARDS: Depending on the level you choose, patrons get 2 to 3 new songs every month, plus 1st dibs to my concerts/special events, plus access to the Curiosity Vault, and more. (see TIERS, and FAQ) As a patron you are making my creative process regular and sustainable. And you'll be rewarded with ear-candy.
♥️ CLARITY: I am NOT entitled to your support! Not at all. Maybe you're not interested, don't like the music, or don't have the money. I get it. It's all good! So I will NOT take it personally if you don't join me. Promise. But I WILL take it personally if you DO join me. :) Promise. I'll love you either way. IF you subscribe, your Patreon pledge will allow me to spend more time with my Calling, my Passion, more time creating and sharing music with you on a regular basis.
Q: What's your music like? I know you to be a "gong-whisperer." Is this different?
A: Yes, this is definitely different. There's a fuzzy distinction between sound and music. I LOVE BOTH! This Patreon page focuses on my music, but not exclusively. I've been in bands (Big Hat, My Scarlet Life, Karma Sutra) all my life, and have a dozen albums out. My current music is not genre-based. It's cinematic, timeless, full of wonder, emotion and imagination. Any vocals are lyric-less. These 7-to-12 minute long dreamscapes ain't pop-tunes. 3 songs/mo = 25-30 minutes (a half-album!) Listeners often call them "exquisite".
Q: Is this music just you, solo?
A: No, not at all. Contributors include the soul-fully expressive Ari Urban (my main muse: violin/viola); Andy Cohn (grand piano); vocals by Brother Thom Ayres, Moana Kai Janicka, Patty Ortega, Mona Jethmalani Roy, Sister Tiombe; Alexander Duvel (world instruments); and more. I'm a slow worker, spending 30+/- hours editing-composing in Pro Tools, following each song's unique White Rabbit, and voila! (btw: some of the Premium tracks take 80hrs.) I'm persistent&obsessed&passionate, and I LOVE to do what I LOVE to do!!
Q: How and when do I get your music from Patreon?
A: You'll get an email with a hassle-free listen &/or down-load link (also on my Patreon page). Peeps will get one track on the 7th of every month, another the 14th. Earth Angels will get the 3rd (Premium) track the 21st.
Q: Can I get your music without Patreon? Can I get earlier tracks I missed?
A: Yes. Some of my music will end up on the super-easy Bandcamp (store), and eventually iTunes, Spotify, etc and CDs. Some tracks are for patrons only - their generous monthly support makes my music possible, so they get privileges.
Q: I'm old-school. Can I become a patron and get a physical CD, not a download?
A: Yes, but I don't know how or when. It takes money & effort to press/package/mail CDs; downloads are easier. Maybe I'll burn CDs every coouple months for patrons who don't download? Or make themed collections when there's abundant music: "Preston & Ari", "Music for Yoga", etc and gift them to CD-loving patrons? If you subscribe, we'll work something out: I want you to hear the music!
Q: Any videos?
A: I'll likely do some Patreon video-posts sharing stories about the songs, interviews with featured artists, and insights into the composing/mixing process. Maybe a tour of Chapel Of Sacred Sounds. Perhaps performance and art videos. I've got ideas. (You wanna create a video? Lemme know your idea!)
