I’m Rob Gungor and I make music by the moniker of Wilderman.
UPDATE: If you donate now you will get an IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD LINK (for $11 and up!)
If you don’t know my music (hopefully you do!), you may also may know me for the collaborative work I’ve done with Gungor, from my old band OK SWEETHEART, or Do Your Thing (the coffee shop I co-own in Marfa, TX).
In September of 2014, 7 collaborators and I gathered at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX.
We recorded call-and-response-style improvisations which were later treated as samples and edited into songs over the following two years.
The result of that process is now a full-length album, Artifice, that needs your help to be released.

I've poured myself into this album and invested all of my own money thus far, but I need your help to take this thing over the finish line!
I've already hired a publicist to get things rolling - but they will need to stop working if I don't raise more funds. They've done a great job so far.
Open Space, the first single from the first record, premiered on Cool Hunting. Here’s the video I made for that:
The second single, Cog, premiered on Brooklyn Vegan.
"With Gungor’s emotive voice and the widescreen, rhythmic sonics, there’s an early-’80s Peter Gabriel vibe going on here, as you can hear on album opener, Cog." - Brooklyn Vegan
These are the fine, talented humans that helped me create this thing.
The money I'm asking for will mainly go to publicity and videos, as a way to help kickstart the awareness of the record.
If we raise more than our additional goal I will reach out and let you know that vinyl is available and give you the option of upgrading or swapping your reward.
Wait... you're making scents?!
Yes, it's been something I've been nerding out on as of late...
I've created 2 scents, Wilderman and Artifice, that you can get in either a perfume spray, perfume oil, perfume solid (in a custom 3d-printed container designed by yours truly) or candle in a custom vessel made in Marfa, TX.
Thank you so much for your support.

Risks and challenges
The risk with releasing these records for me is simply putting out something I fully believe in and truly can say I put my all into. That's scary for me, but also exciting.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
