CURRENT STATUS: In production, scheduled for 2019 release.
Many changes happening very quickly to a 22 year-old who has access to instruments, writing and recording tools can be a remarkable thing. These were dark times. I was not in a place to negotiate anything. I was in unfamiliar territory without very much to show for myself.
The recent past was still ringing in my ears and pulsating through my nervous system. I was running out of job options as the tech boom had crashed head first, and 9/11 had everyone on edge. There was this attitude, generally, that "we're in this new century now, so let's see how it goes!" Things felt unstable where I was.
I had gone from web designer/sales for a multi-million dollar company down to flipping burgers, but I was somewhere different, with new people, and perhaps a corner on the weird guy with a computer who makes loops and records music on it market.
I went straight for recording the oddest, most complicated music I could fathom. In my mind, I was going to figure out my next move after this, and it might not involve music. I considered this a potential farewell.
Special Thanks go to Adrian, Mike, David, Todd and Nathan
