The Future of Asymmetry

Aside from a very welcome donation last year from a staunch supporter, Asymmetry Music Magazine has operated solely from funding off of one source. After seven years, that source has dried up. For Asymmetry to continue its mission of reporting on new music concerts and recommending recordings of new music and interviewing the people who make that music, the magazine must now look for funding outside of that one source.

I thought of you, first. And the first thing you can do, you have already done. You are on the site. That’s one “hit.” And the number of hits is an important consideration for the funding sources that come in second to you: grants and advertising. So already, thank you for supporting Asymmetry Music Magazine.

The second thing you can do, if you’re so inclined, is to mention Asymmetry to someone else. If they come here, that’s at the very least one more hit. At the very most, the magazine has acquired one more reader. And somewhere in between those two is the possibility that that person can spare us a dime. Or two.

After all, if only a mere one thousand people in the entire world (of seven billion) can spare a trifling 40USD each, then Asymmetry would have enough to operate for an entire year. Easily. If only a mere forty people in the entire world (of seven billion) can spare a thousand dollars each, the result is the same.

There’s nothing sacred about those amounts, of course. Not even the total. Asymmetry will accept anything you want to contribute. The more it gets, the longer it can operate before begging again. Simple!

One final point. The magazine’s back-log of unpublished material will be published starting after the first of the year, regardless. This funding request is for once that back-log has been used up.

Asymmetry Music Magazine is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Donations from U.S. donors are tax deductible. The donate button is off to the right, there. You may have to scroll a bit to see it. This announcement will remain up until the first of next year, at which time I will report on the total and begin posting again.

    Most of the names I did not recognize, which makes me even more sad that I cannot attend this year. But you can. And probably should. If you love your ears, attend this festival.
