is creating music

Brknln_ is the space in which I work with sound, images and words. To me the process of creating a music is manifold. It is made up of different stages and there's transitional forms that occur in it, precursors of what I consider a finished work. In there near future, here is where you will get an insight into my way of working, snips, intermediaries, pieces of music, writing and visual media. A whole stack of broken lines.

Receive a physical copy of the next album way before anyone else (limited Patreon-only edition).  All A-pride-of-lines-benefits are yours as well.

Reading Listener
$30 or more per month

Many of the song lyrics that end up in the actual song started out as a poem. Sometimes the other way around, a song lyric ends up being a poem or something written but undefined splits up into both. At other times a poem was meant as a poem and against all odds ends up as exactly that: a poem. Anyhow, I write them and they exist. In the course of a year 6 or 7 of them I pair with a print or photograph I made and assemble them in a handmade booklet finished in November. As a Reading Listener it will be send to you. And of course you will get the news and stories posted on here, download codes fo past and future releases and a physical copy of the next album.

Systemic Listener
$100 or more per month

As a Systemic Listener, what you do is, you buy me a bucket full of time each month. Time, that you yourself most likely have spent working in order to get paid. So, essentially, we are trading hours in the shape of money. At this tier, I am trusted with your time to enable something that you think is important apart from music and art as a product: the process of creating it. Physical copies of music, the book of poems, selected prints as well different audible or visible stages of unreleased music are part of this process and will be send to you.

Goals

In terms of content, I have a clearly defined goal: I want to finish my next album within 24 month from now. As far as earning amounts go, I find it more difficult to define that. I had many reasons for opening this page and one of them was to find financial support. However, this goal I'm aiming at, ultimately, isn't depending on money. I will finish the album - it's kind of my job, it's what I have to do, broke or not. But with your support it will come together quicker and more importantly: With your help it will be a better album and a better process. For the money, for the support and for the knowledge that you are out there breathing live into this by taking notice and taking part. Thank you!
