Catalytic Sound is only possible through patron support. We are a cooperative of thirty musicians and three staff members who work together through a model of equal profit sharing to support each other's creative endeavors.

By becoming a digital member, you become part of a unique online network of artists and supporters who create and fund new work through collective means. The core of this membership tier is the Catalytic Soundstream. 

The Catalytic Soundstream is our solution to systemic imbalance created by large music streaming platforms. It is an artist owned and curated, subscription-based streaming service that pays Catalytic Sound co-op musicians half of net income generated through listeners' subscriptions. Independent record labels represented on the Label Radio tier will also compensate their artists a proportional amount. 

In addition to the Soundstream, members at this tier also get access to an exclusive monthly episode of the Option Talks podcast, member-only videos from Catalytic Artist, the Catalytic Artist Album series, member-exclusive sale codes, digital copies of the Catalytic Quarterly publication, and free streaming from select locations of the Catalytic Sound Festival 2021.

At this level, you become a substantial supporter of Catalytic Sound's mission to create models of economic sustainability for creative improvising musicians. The Catalytic Sound project as it currently exists is only possible with the support of these monthly contributions. Your support makes it possible for Catalytic Sound to continue releasing exclusive albums, putting on a yearly festival and producing the Catalytic Quarterly journal.

As thanks for your support, members of the Artifacts tier receive a collection of digital and physical items from Catalytic artists. In addition to all of the access to content posted on the Catalytic Sound Patreon page and the Soundstream, Artifacts members receive two digital albums of your choice each month, the Catalytic Quarterly journal delivered to your doorstep, and access to exclusive member-only sales.

We will also ship you a "welcome package" containing a t-shirt designed by Federico Peñalva.
