Soap Ear has been gradually constructed with love and attention from various artists, musicians, thinkers, poets, hackers, and generally good people. Along the way, we have made a point of paying as many of them as possible for their labor, and we have offered all of our issues and release parties without any paywall or fees. This, then, is the part where we ask for some financial assistance in continuing this project. We want to grow, to cross new terrain, to throw more shows and groove out with you, and most importantly to continue to produce excellent writing on sound as it pertains to the contemporary moment in Los Angeles and elsewhere. We have some unannounced tricks and projects up our sleeves and they are only possible with your support. We are here to serve both Los Angeles and our expanded readership around the world.
