It's Back!!! THE INFINITE MINUTE
Every $ goes towards the making of a song. If 100 people pledge $1, another song gets made. If 10 people pledge $10, another song gets made. Or you can pledge $100 and get a song of your very own!
How many songs can one person write?
Last time we did this I wrote 169 one-minute songs!
I want to see how many one-minute songs I can write (hint: the number is equal to how many you want me to write.) Could be one song, could be a thousand. I'll be happy with any number. Because I like writing songs.
I'm going to start writing immediately. I will livestream some of my writing sessions.
PLEDGE ANY AMOUNT FOR FULL ACCESS AND DOWNLOADS
Every pledge of $1 or more comes with access to the songwriting process and downloads of every single song on the Infinite Minute album.

A SONG OF YOUR VERY OWN
You can get your own one-minute song for $100. You give me two words, which I feed into my random song making generator (a.k.a. my brain) and then a one-minute song comes out. One-minute songs are a fun, quick, grab-bag of song making. Like a sketch is to a painting.
Do you need a theme song? A love song? A song for skipping down the street? An outgoing phone message? A custom ring-tone? A soundtrack? A gift? A song to put pants on by? A song to take pants off by?
This is your moment to get a cracking one-minute song just for you. Or your mom. Or your non-commercial art project.
WINTER IS COMING
And with winter comes Christmas, and with Christmas comes the inevitable,
"WTF should I get for so-and-so?!!"
Get them an Infinite Minute song! Problem solved.
I am writings songs in the order they are pledged for. The first 30 will be ready by Christmas, guaranteed! (This number may go up - I will add more as I finish songs.) You can also present the giftee with a certificate and let them choose the two words after Christmas - your choice.
AM I SURE I WANT TO DO THIS?
Yes. I am.
WHAT WILL THE SONGS BE LIKE?
Sometimes I write electro-pop, sometimes I write rock, or country, or folk, or cabaret. I play guitar (electric and acoustic), banjo, synthesizer, accordion, drums, ukulele, pots and pans, typewriters, marionettes, and hammer dulcimer. The songs could be simple or complex. Each song will be different. Some will be slow, some will be sad, some will be happy, some will be silly, some will be loud. Some songs will have many instruments, some will only have one. The songs will be unique, each one its very own creature.
Every song written for this project will be released digitally to every single backer of this Kickstarter.
I will be posting updates and songs as often as I write them, often daily, but for sanity's sake - your's mostly - I will send out downloads once a month. Every song written in December will be released at the end of December, and so on...
The Infinite Minute will not be made widely publicly available. The only way to ensure access to these songs is by backing this Kickstarter. Don't wait for the album to come out, because it might not be ever made public.
HOW MANY SONGS ARE POSSIBLE?
Ok, listen, I can write a lot of songs, it's like a superpower I have. But I suppose there would be a point where it would get... actually impossible.
I wrote 169 songs last time, it took me a few months. I'd love to do that again. I'd like to write even more songs. I don't actually foresee there being a problem because the number would have to be in the many thousands before it became really untenable. But maybe we should find out. For science.
The last Infinite Minute:
*The Fine Print (damn fine, if you ask me...)
- You may use your custom song for any non-commercial project. If you have a non-commercial project that ends up going commercial, i.e.: gets advertisers, underwriters, or you sell your movie/game/podcast/etc, please get in touch with me about how we can negotiate a fair fee for commercial usage, or just stop using my song.
- You cannot sell my songs without my consent, like on a soundtrack album or mixtape.
- Sometimes I swear in songs, or sing about "mature" things like sex and drugs. You can tell me whether you want the song clean/SFW/all-audiences friendly. Like, if you are commissioning a song for a child, or someone who doesn't like sex or drugs or swearing.
- I won't write hate songs. There will be no racism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia etc...
- songs are fun, let's do this.
Risks and challenges
This could end up being a very ambitious project. You might want me to write hundreds of songs. And I will. I know I can do it because I've done it before. Last time I wrote 169 songs in just a few months.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
