Doll Imago is creating Music

patron

Doll Imago is comprised of one roque artist dedicated to creating a unique atmosphere through digital soundscapes and melodic exploration. Inspired by her studies of classical composers, particularly the music of Chopin, Kabalevsky and Debussy, she has paved a way to decipher her own interior stirrings to compose. Currently her calling to classical music has lead her to study the music of Phillip Glass, Arvo Part and Michael Nyman. This has in turn opened the doors to the music of a pop/ambient/ethereal learning including Harold Budd, Brian Eno and early 4AD bands like the Cocteau Twins where the ethos of the music of these composers can already be heard in her original music. Although her composing style blossomed years before hearing these artists it is testimony to the fact that "it is in the air"-individuals with similar aims, in the case of beauty and simplicity will arrive at similar results.

Doll Imago uses drone to promote stillness, uses repetition to stabilize the attention and variation of melody to create drama, narrative and reflection. It does not pummel you with beats, catchiness and attitude but instead intimates it's purpose and furtively rewards the listener who is attuned to the subtlety of it's language; a language that pushes to and fro from wistful speculation to the point of discovery, an answer to the question that is sometimes discordant and earthbound and sometimes graceful and otherworldly. It seems the kind of music that can only come from a contemplative essence that is grounded in the world of the present while being steeped in the tradtions of the past. It is an intimate soundtrack to private moments, providing empathy to the solitary part of the individual.

I am joining Patreon after many years not composing.  My hope is to find my musical voice once again and share this with Patrons.  The artist statement included is a testament to my musical voice discovered and developed through the years of 2000-2010.  My new voice will hopefully and expectedly include this kind of ethos but look forward to discovering and developing a current new voice.  I look forward to sharing my works that will also include photography and knitwear.  My main focus is however; the music.
Tiers
Lillies

Lillies are the budding of new projects and the resurrection of old.


Downloads of each song is the reward.  Some of the time I will post a composition of the past and other times will share new work.

Roses  Rewards include the download of the composition, an original 5x7 photo print and a download of the Vasalisa album composed in 2001.

  

This particular album is based on the story of Vasalisa inspired by the book Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes and on Bela Bartok's orchestral rendition of another fairy tale, Bluebeards Castle. Each song is a depiction of the psychological state the main character, Vasalisa, experiences as she goes through a growing process leaving a younger less experienced self behind and grows into a bigger sense of herself and her power in the world.


Future CDs will be made and sent as made.  As the goal is to create future albums in completion with photography art and possibly poetry for each song.

Sea Flowers are one step into a world of knitting and music.  I will include previous rewards along with a handmade knit item.  Whether it will be a hat, scarf or fingerless gloves, I will make one of these items per year for each patron that pledges this amount to be a part of my music making venture.


Goals

I will open up tiers for further patrons allowing more support and output by me in the creative process.  The funding will allow for CD production and further my venture not  just into music but into photography.
