Durham NC

Currently In Durham North Carolina being treated like a positive body of energy. These moments are very powerful to describe. Floods of emotion washing over my physical. Sites to see captured using age old techniques of yesteryear. My performance last night felt like I was in a room of friendly strangers anxious to let themselves go. I'm noticing more that the power invested in me is built to extend outward towards the boundaries of our physical realm of existence. Next stop, Richmond Virginia.

Joel Couture of Gamasutra published a very well worded piece about Doors To The City today. It touches on the revolutionary Tech Deck interface for the game as well as our participation at Alt.Ctrl.GDC March 19-23rd in San Francisco, California.

For those who don't know, DTTC is a holographic video game collaboration between myself, Benji P & Looking Glass.

Closed Doors: An Artist Statement

Mixing down new music and had a few thoughts. So, here's some personal insight about what im working on.

This song (Where Did U Go) is a bit different from the others on the project. It sounds like my flow all the early fans came to adore. A mix of singing passionate hooks and reciting poetic verses. It's an open minded song about the ways of the world.

As for #ClosedDoors entirely, I feel strongly about how people will receive the project. The melodies are 100% groove. Lyrics are very mature. Vocals don't appear on every song but those w/ them are very majestic. Production is tuned to make vocals the lead as synths take listeners on a deep journey. The late night percussion is human as well as machine based in nature. There's also a ton of field recordings that tell the story.

I plan to convert the digital songs to live w/ my bandmates in Feb/March. There's a few shows on the calender for those looking to see me perform some originals. Anyone who's been to any of my concerts, knows the energy is pure. I'll be announcing short U.S. March/April tour in the forthcoming weeks. Before all that however I'll be at Jupiter Disco 9:30pm Wed Feb 7th . Lets chat in-between my and OG AG sets.

Doors To The City

For those who don't know, I've been working on a cool project blending audio, physical & holographic art project called #DoorsToTheCity. It's a video game collaboration between Benjamin Poynter of Looking Glass and myself. The purpose of DTTC is to give people an escape and join an artist as he travels thru the world in search of the perfect sound.
