Live Music Video 🎹🎬✨💻💥
€16
per month
This tier adds access to realtime events, and their archives. You also get new releases minimum one week before they are public.

  • Everything on previous tier plus:
  • Exclusive realtime events
    (monthly, internet streaming)
    (concerts, DJ sets, hangouts, experiments)
  • Archive of all these events 
  • Early releases
    (albums, singles, videos, blogposts)
  • Special thanks in credits 

Early releases are exclusive access to albums, singles, videos, blog posts and concert tickets before they are publicly released. 

This tier for sure will have to be a bit experimental the first six months. I tried guess-pricing this tier at a kind of average EU “ticketprice” level, as you’ll generally get an “event” for it each month. After six months we can have a conversation on how this works, or not. :)

About

Hi! My name is Gisle Martens Meyer. I'm a geek and I make Ugress.

I create music, video and live performances spanning electronica, film, triphop, metal, dub, ambient and industrial. My specialty is sampling, everything from obscure vinyl and forgotten films, to crawling under glaciers for microscopic field recordings. If it sounds gloomy and flows groovy, anything goes. I'm deeply inspired by sci-fi, new weird, fantasy, retro tech and digital culture. I started out hacking music on computers already back in the demo-scene.

I release music digitally as well as vinyl. My tracks are featured in movies, TV series, and video games. I do regular internet livestream concerts, and real life touring with a full band. I also create new scores to silent movie classics, perform them live in the cinema. And sometimes I get to produce completely mad commissioned media art projectsconcerts and installations

This Patreon is a realtime view into the process, as well a growing archive of the results. It is also a space for conversation about existing and upcoming works, away from the corporate social media platforms. You can watch exclusive full videos, making-of's, behind-the-scenes, you can attend and comment on work-in-progress, and download the tracks from all the above right here on this Patreon. 

As of June 2020, the page is booting up into public beta, and I start adding to the archives. My goal is to provide:

  • A community and space for conversation on the works
  • Access to public works, exclusive works and prototypes
  • Exclusive realtime events and performances
  • Backstage access to rehearsals, touring, concerts
  • Making-of posts on the how and why
  • Work-in-progress participation on upcoming works
  • A library of works, with full video and audio of performances

My aim is that this Patreon becomes a new "third" space between the privacy of the studio on one side, and the very public "stage" of official releases, concerts and social media promotion on the other. I'm very excited to boot this up now. You can read more on my background and decision to start a Patreon in this very first status update post.
Goals
35 of 50 patrons
When we reach 50 patrons, I'll make a questionarie followed up by a scheduled live chat hangout, to get a sense of what works and not. I'm curious to learn what works for you, and also figure out what works for me. 

I also think at this point it I will have a better picture of the economy of this, which will make it easier to refine existing goals and set new ones.
