Why this page? For me, Patreon represents two big opportunities.
First, I love sharing music with people just like you, and Patreon is a really good way for us to share my music and other music while giving us a place to discuss it without the distractions of Facebook or Twitter. As a patron, you'll be able to download music and find out more about my music and me.
Second is the part that makes Patreon different from just hosting my own website with a blog. Patreon makes it easy for you to support my music. It allows you to say how much and how often, and to only support when I publish something, without paying 80% to a big company like Apple or Amazon.
That's what you're considering: will I be support Richard creating new music? And that's pretty cool that you're considering it.
How does it work? I create 2 to 4 pieces of music per month. These will be songs or instrumentals. You choose what to pay per piece. You can set a monthly limit. A fantastic way to support me is by grabbing the $3 Reward. Based on the level you chose, you'll get certain pieces exclusively here and you'll get everything first. I invite you to sign up at the level that really works for you.
Don't forget the pledge is per piece, so if you want to limit how much you spend per month just say that when you sign up (it's at the end of the signup process).
2017 was an unforgettable year!These were my highlights of the year:
- Released my first album The Globalization of Our Discontent
- Composed and premiered a bunch of new pieces
- Taught a bunch of kids to compose music and make their own films
