If you would like to continuously support me on my never-ending musical quest to create as much music as possible throughout my lifetime, then please consider becoming a patron over at Patreon!
Patreon is much like crowd-funding websites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo but instead of asking for a huge amount of money for one big project, Patreon uses a system where you donate a small amount of money on a monthly basis or for each piece of content created for a small amount of money.
I absolutely love composing music as it's one of my strongest musical skills and it allows me to be as creative as possible and while I do enjoy composing these pieces of music, the process of creating a composition can be a little bit difficult and requires a lot of hard work as I have to think of a good theme that no-one else has thought of yet, take a lot of time to implement the MIDI into Cubase which is all done my computer mouse and tweak around with virutal instrumentation to make sure that my compositions sounds realistic and immersive. Most of the time, a composition can take around two weeks to two months to create from start to finish depending on the size, length and detail of the composition.
But with your support, it will encourage me to dedicate even more time towards composing and detailed scoring for performance and I'll also be able to increase the quality and variety of compositions with new virtual instruments, manufacture new physical albums and EPs along with locally commissioned artwork and also release my albums digitally on stores like iTunes, Google Play and Amazon MP3 and streaming services such as Spotify and Rhapsody through music aggregator.
Pledging $1 will grant you access to my patron-only blog where I'll be able to update patrons with how I'm doing with compositions, access to behind the scenes screenshots/footage of compositions and including some stories behind some compositions and you will also get a shout-out on Soundcloud in the description box and an MP3 of the next compositions I create via e-mail! You will also have your name in the next album on the Patreon list inside the album's booklet!
Just to show how big some of my compositions can become, here's the inside look of the Cubase project file for one of my biggest compositions, "Overture: Tsirk Durakov":
I use Soundcloud as my main hub for showing my compositions as it does take me a while to compile together a completed album of musical works and I like showing what completed songs I have so far. I post work-in-progresses of compositions and even some non-classical music as well.
Also please note that this is simply a completely optional way of supporting me and this campaign is targetted towards the people who really want to help me on my musical journey on creating as much music in my lifetime!
Thanks for listening and thanks for your support!
