Thank you for making my art possible. 

I am a performer/composer/artist and maker-of-things. The "things" I make aren't easily categorized, and don't really belong in a specific genre... I make spontaneous, deeply personal music with trumpets and electronics, I make performance art, I write computer programs that generate visuals, I invent and build musical robots and augmented instruments... I don't know exactly what I'll do next, but I can't wait to share it with you!

How does Patreon work?

If you like my music/art and want to support me in the creation of new things, this is the place to do it. My art is experimental, a lot like this journey. This is ALL an experiment, and I'm so grateful to have you here with me, in my inner circle. Here's the thing: I will always be an artist, and I will never stop dreaming up crazy ideas and making things. But in order to do this in a way that is sustainable for me, I need YOU. It's almost impossible to find enough consistent funding to keep projects going, get new things off the ground, and to pay collaborators what they deserve. It's exhausting (for me and my fans) to launch individual fundraising campaigns with every new project or tour.

Becoming a patron means that you are agreeing to make a monthly pledge in support of my artistic career. Every bit of your support goes directly to me and to funding my art. Trust me when I say that your contribution makes a difference. Whether you're backing me for a dollar or ten, THANK YOU. All of the "things" I make have meaning because you give my voice a way to be heard. Because of your patronage I am able to spend more time creating, I am free to take more risks, to aim higher, and most importantly, to share more art with you (and the world). 

By believing in me and making a monthly pledge — no matter what amount — you are contributing to a movement. An incredible, game-changing movement to make independent art possible. Thank you for being part of this journey.

But wait... I want to know more! 

If you want to know more about the kind of work you will be making possible, check out some of these examples of recent projects. Honestly, who knows what will come next?! Anything's possible...thanks to you.

Goals
$246 of $250 per month
Thanks to my amazing patron community, I have been able to continue to design and develop new musical instruments and interfaces. But the most exciting part is actually composing music and performing with them!! 

If we reach this goal I will present a full length concert premiering brand new works for augmented MIGSI trumpet (the development of which is funded by patrons!), electronics, and other handmade instruments. The event will be livestreamed and professionally documented and will include a patron-only pre-concert Q+A session!
