I would like to expose my scores in museums, as painters expose their paintings.
If you're looking for the most expensive paintings on the internet, you will easily find them. There is actually a wikipedia page dedicated to the world's most expensive paintings. At the top of the list, you will find a painting called "The Cards Player" by Paul Cézanne, a french painter, which was sold at the price of 269 400 000$.
It turns out that if you try to type the most expensive scores on the internet, you may end landing on this page. Apparently, music is not considered to have the same financial value as painting on the art market.

Does it sound fair to you that music and painting aren't at the same level on the art market? It does not to me.

This device would take about the space of one person standing, so that we can put many devices in a room if we want to.
Now if I wanted to do this project by my own, I would be ruined before I could get even started.
Therefore, hoping that you have some interest in this project, I'm asking for your help.
Please go to my website, listen to my music, and if you think it's worth being spread, continue reading.
If you decide to support me, then buy me any work that I put on the website.
Those scores are intentionally the most expensive scores in the world.
As a consequence of this symbolic act, you will be at the origin of:
In exchange for your generosity, I will build this device for you and help spreading it in the museums all over
There are about 55,000 museums in 202 countries (dixit wikipedia), so that's not a half-time job.
So, if you decide to support this project, or for additional information, please contact me: lingtalfi [at] gmail.com
