Underwater Music you can dance to on Mars! A sci-fi experiment in audio art, music and poetry.
First episode of my podcast series, truthbytwo, introducing a few tracks off of my upcoming album, title tbc. My music is more audio art, composed similarly to how I paint, in multiple layers, with lots of different soundscapes woven together, like colors blending on a canvas. It’s very experimental, and narrative in form. I’m always open to new ideas, collaboration and positive feedback.
