Hi everyone! Just like most things in my life I found this forum randomly. I actually can’t remember how I was directed here, but it seemed like an interesting place, and I liked the non simplemachines forum style
So a bit about me… I’m Jon. I live in Los Angeles, I’m a musician. Vocals, guitar, keys, programming etc. I’m a metal head + hiphop head, but I listen to and will create almost anything. Good music is good music, style and category are irrelevant when it comes down to it.
I’m also a designer/digital artist. I work in the cryptospace and provide my services to a wide array of projects. Digital art, vanilla graphic design, art direction and branding, animation and just about anything that fits the situation. I like to provide our clients with unique and original material, in a space where most are focused on making money - good design sometimes gets left behind. That’s where I fit in
I also run a community radio stream, which will be branching out to FM in the future. The stream takes requests in exchange for crypto 24/7 from social channels on Discord, IRC, Matrix, Telegram. 80% of everything taken in from requests, votes, and other stuff gets reserved in a vault to pay copyrights and individual artists. In all reality, music rights management organizations are a scam. My goal is to help shape a future for creators where they don’t just get dust for their contributions. Being a music lover, I want to provide a fun atmosphere where artists can share their work and get a little back in return. Don’t need millions of plays to see some coin come back
So yeah heh… Sorry to ramble on, I’m low on sleep. I’m glad to be here, and I look forward to talking with other creativity junkies
Artistic expression is the language of emotions.
