Short Songs For Patrons: Clockmaker
Since 2019, I’ve been devoting the majority of my creative time to making Short Songs For Patrons. This has resulted in a number of albums of exactly what it sounds like – short songs, personalized for people who become my patrons (over on Patreon). I’ve focused on one SSFP project/album per year, but started changing it up this year. For the Clockmaker project, I’m writing and recording orchestral “film” music to accompany a short story, tying in patron names and giving patrons updates along the way. It’s the biggest, most complex thing I’ve ever worked on.
Making this website
I’ve dabbled in web development since the ’90s. Like many of my interests, I’m entirely self-taught. My original plan was to learn some modern programming language (specifically Python), but in the interest of time, I opted for WordPress, which, despite its flaws, is relatively very easy to just fire up and start using.
Speaking of coding
Because I’m writing a story for the Clockmaker project, I thought it’d be fun to learn something weird: LaTeX. I’m using this to present the written story in a book-like format.
