FEED THE ARTS INTRODUCES TIME FUNDING WEBSITE FOR THE ARTS
ENTERTAINMENT SERVICE PROVIDERS BENEFIT AND BUILD THEIR BUSINESS WHILE HELPING ARTISTS

Time Funding is a cross between crowd funding and virtual rewards programs allowing fans to donate time instead of money. Their time is what helps Artists get funded and allows funding of Creative Arts projects with fans earning virtual currency we call ?Helping Hands?. Helping Hands are then turned around through an advertising revenue share and giving that currency to artists projects posted on the site. This revolutionary model eliminates the risk of previous crowd funding and traditional funding models.

This book takes you on a journey from the excitement of having a music publishing contract with a major music publishing company to the legal battles that followed.
Every day, we hear a wide variety of sounds and noises that our brains must process for us so that we can make sense out of them. Some of these noises can be pleasant and others can be jarring. A nice piece of classical music can be soothing, but if your dog starts barking in your ears, then you might lose that soothing feeling. Psychoacoustics is basically the study of these psychological and physiological interactions with sound. Obviously, the way a sonata makes us feel is entirely different than the way Rover’s yap makes us feel.
