Postcard 1

Over at my Patreon page I have a few different “rewards” for different levels of funding. The idea is to thank my patrons for their support, while also doing things that are musically useful or relevant.

For pledges of $3/work or more, if patrons disclose their postal address, I send a hand-drawn postcard with a short, unique melody by me on it.

Here’s the first one:
It looked better in person: metallic ink is actually remarkably difficult to photograph well with a phone…

I posted it on Thursday just before collection time, so it is already with @Partakers_Dave.

I’ve taken a photograph because, in addition to sending them to people I want to thank for their support, I plan to use these melodies at some point; I haven’t yet decided whether to combine them into a larger piece somehow, or to take each one and expand on it, to form a multi-movement work or a collection of pieces.

I’m hoping, of course, that there will be a lot of these. I may extend the project beyond Patreon: I can think of several people who are supportive of my work and ideas who I’d like to thank in some small way. As with most of my work, these postcards are licensed with CC BY-SA, so if you want to use or modify the image or the music you are quite welcome to do so. Just make sure you attribute me, and release any derivative work under the same licence.
