About Motoko Honda - Pianist and Composer

Hi ! and Welcome to my Patreon page ♥️
こんにちは!
ピアニスト/作曲家、本田素子のページへようこそ(日本語の説明は一番下になっております)!

I’m so happy you found me here 🥰 and THANK YOU for considering to support my work 🎹🎼 !
I created this page to start my new journey as a musician, to take a step towards to create music more freely, earn more steady income from my creations, and most importantly, to FIND YOU - to nurture a direct connection between you and me, and to find a better way to contribute to the community and the world through my creations.

-A Little Bit About Me…
I was originally born in Japan, and moved to the U.S. when I was 19 years old to study in Kansas,  after my heartbreaking decision to stop playing the piano.  So you could say my real journey started when I left music behind me. I thought I would never ever touch the piano again, but many coincidences and amazing encounters lead me back to the music, but it still seemed to take endless time to heal from the past and really embrace my music. Last few years I took more drastic measures to turn myself around and decided to take control of my life and my music, and the end result is this, starting my own membership to directly connect with my audience. I have realized the reason I make music is that this is the best possible way for me to contribute to the world, and I can only do so by being free to follow my true self and my creative instincts.  My musical and artistic interests are wide, and I don’t discriminate against any types of music, so some people have a hard time to define what kind of musician I am, but that’s what makes me who I am and I’m ready to embrace it and explore further, hopefully with amazing people like you by my side.

-What’s Patreon and how does it work?
Patreon is like a membership program where YOU CAN BECOME a PATRON of the artist of your choice like in old times with contribution as small as $1 !
YOU GET A LOT OF PERKS + CREATORS like me can (finally!) earn steady and predictable income. You can easily sign up to this website, safely give credit card or Paypal information and you’ll be charged with $1 (or more, the tier of your choice) for each creations I send out (about 2 per months at this moment) at the end of every month. My recommendation is $5 tier and up as they will give you way more perks/discounts while helping me to achieve my goals faster ♥️

If you decide to become MY PATRON, you will be my most important audience and you will get the first class treatment. You will be the first to have access to my music videos and other fun stuff, which I have recorded, shot, edited and mixed all on my own (until I have my own team)! You will also have the opportunity to receive bonus materials including behind the scenes, outtakes from the official CD releases, participating to my creative process, live access and more exclusive and personal material JUST for you. By joining you will not only enjoy all of this, but you will also be DIRECTLY supporting me in continuing to achieve my creative freedom as an independent musician: composing, performing and planning concerts, filming, and providing you with unique music contents. You will also be helping me to hire collaborators and a support team in the future and to purchase much needed musical instruments and video related equipments to make better works.

-Why Patreon?
For most of my life, all I wanted was to become a musician, make music and be happy. But the music industry doesn’t make it easy - especially for an independent musician and artist like me, who is creating unconventional, nontraditional music which doesn't fit into any category, specific genre, or trend. Now I understand that I must take matters into my own hands, to make a much greater effort to find the people who truly matter to me like YOU, who really enjoy my music. I want to focus more on my creative freedom and on YOU, how I can be a positive part of your life and this world, instead of trying to fit into the existing boxes of the music industry.

So, I NEED YOU ! And I want to invite you to come along with me on this unknown, EXCITING, new journey.
I look forward to creating more music, sharing it with you and creating a community of like-minded people, so that we can encourage each other to pursue our own dreams. Also, I want to encourage you to be openminded, curious and willing to self-explore through my music and this process. What I want to bring to the table is all kind of music videos, but not only music, but also art works, experimental videos, travel journals and more, that inspire curiosity and joy which is a big part of my essence, life and creativity. I promise you I will always put MY WHOLE HEART into all my creations. I will start this journey by sharing piano solo videos I have started to shoot during the pandemic, and we will find out where we will be going after that.

If you are not quite sure, you can sign up to receive newsletters at MY OFFICIAL WEBSITE OR follow me on the social media of your choice ♥️ Instagram, YouTube, Facebook
This journey will mean so much more having you beside me-

I HOPE YOU CAN JOIN IN !!! - I CANNOT WAIT TO CONNECT WITH YOU!

ピアニスト/作曲家の本田素子のパトロンページにご興味を持っていただき、ありがとうございます!このページを通して日本の皆様にも、ようやく定期的に音楽を届けていけるようになったのをとても嬉しく思っております。メンバーになっていただいた方々には、定期的に(月2回程)オリジナルの音楽や音楽ビデオを中心に、様々なボーナスも含めてお届けしていく予定です。投資していただいた資金は、動画制作を中心に、機材購入や、コラボレーターの方々を雇ったりするなど、他のコンサート作りや、大きなプロジェクトへの準備と使わせていただきます。ありがとうございます。

ボーナスはコンサート舞台裏やリハーサルの様子や作曲のプロセス、正式CDには収録しきれなかったアウトテイクなど様々。メンバーシップのレベルによっては新作品作りへの参加や、パトロン様のみがアクセスできるライブQ&Aや動画に自分の名前が出てくるなどの楽しい特典がございます。皆さまのお声を聞きながら、楽しいメンバーシップにしていきたいと思っていますのでよろしくお願いいたします。

音楽スタイルとしては、アバンギャルド、前衛音楽、エレクトロニクスやピアノのエクステンディドテクニックを使った音楽を中心に活動してきましたが、最近ではさらに自分らしいスタイルをめざして、美しいメロディーや、ジャズ、クラシカルハーモニーを取り入れると共に、ジャンルにとらわれない音楽のための音楽を追求していきたいと思っております。毎月お届けする音楽は様々で、その時々や場所によって与えられるインスピレーションに伴って変わっていくと思いますので、まさに、どこに行くかわからない、音楽の冒険に一緒に来ていただく感覚です。不思議であり、美しくあり、驚きもある色々な音楽の姿をご提供していきたいと思いますので、心を開いて応援して下さいませ。皆さんのご感想やリクエストも色々取り入れながら制作していきたいと思っていますので、よろしくお願いいたします。

皆様にお会いするのをとても楽しみにしております ♥️

本田素子/ピアニスト/作曲家について
18歳の頃にピアノを辞めた事がきっかけで渡米。もう二度とピアノを弾かないと心に固く誓い、英語を学ぶ為の留学のつもりが、様々な人々の出会いや偶然が私を音楽へと導き返してくれました。その際に、自分らしい自然な音楽家の姿というのは、昔の音楽家達のように、作曲家であり、即興演奏家であり、ピアニストである事なのではという声に従い今の道に辿りつきました。本格的なピアノ勉強の再開も、作曲も即興も大学院から開始するという、理想や想像とは程遠い道のりが、自分らしい音楽作り、そしてその発見への道へと導いてくれたと思います。大学院卒業後は、アメリカ作曲演奏家の巨匠ワダダ・レオ・スミスやエリオット・シャープに認められ、アメリカでも希少なEB1-Aグリーンカード(非凡な芸術能力保持者専用永住権)の保持者として、コンサートや美術芸術家とのコラボレーション、作曲や大学でのレクチャーやゲストアーティストとしての出演など、様々なお仕事をさせていただきながら、現在カリフォルニアのオークランド/サンフランシスコ付近に在住しております。



Goals
45 of 60 patrons
I cannot believe how far I made it so far ! When I started that I just had to believe that I can do this, but I knew that I could't do this without your support. Thank you.  My patrons are literally changing my life and how I work on my music and think bigger. 

I'm starting to invest more on my music business now so I can focus on my music better, dream bigger and give you better music/videos and more.  But it's still a long long way to go.  I'm still recovering from the initial investment including the purchase new Macbook Pro to deal with 4k video editing.  So please help me reach the next level small steps at a time. 

Next investment purchase list is this: 1 more high capacity hard drive, Microphone for Iphone, Gimbal, CD/DVID drive (it didn't come with my new computer), and another piano tuning and re-purchasing my beloved Nord Lead Keyboard as it's power is still not stable during the concert after several fix.

If you are interested in helping to cover these specific costs incurred, contact me ! I can send you the receipts and you can privately fund this production cost. Much gratitude !

日本語:パトロン様60人ゴール
3ヶ月前に始めた時には考えられませんでしたが、ようやくパトロン様40人まで到達しました。自分の力を疑ったり、落ち込んだりするような時でも、いつも支えてくれている方々がいるのだと思うと、勇気がでてきます。まだまだ大きな夢に向かっていくために出資も投資も大きくありますので、皆様の応援よろしくお願いいたします。

これから必要とされているものはIphoneのためのマイク、大容量ハードドライブをもう1つ、ギンバル, CD/DVD ドライブ(新しいコンピューターにはついていないため)、今年2回目のピアノ調律。そして大好きなキーボードが壊れてきているのでおそらく再購入予定です。

*パトロン様の中で、特定の機材の為の応援/寄付をされたい方は、レシート等をお見せできますので、直接ご連絡ください。ありがとうございます!
