I’ve been working on a number of projects as of late. I cannot release the information on those yet due to the usual non-disclosure agreements but announcements will be coming in the next few weeks. Be sure to follow my twitter and instagram feeds for information on those.
What I can say is that I have an upcoming solo album under the moniker ‘HYPNOGOGIC JERK‘ and will be titled PSYCHONAUT. These tracks were inspired by my early days of electronic music listening. Music artist influences include Tangerine Dream, Synergy, Kitaro, Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno and more contemporary artists such as The Orb, The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy. Non-musical influences include neurophysiologist and father of sensory-deprivation flotation John C. Lilly (thus the title), Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary and Carl Sagan. Of course, my classical training background makes an appearance here and there but for the most part this is a large departure from my film-music style and takes me back to my wonder years of exploring electronic music. Think of it as an origin story and music playground for me. I hope you enjoy it. Stay tuned!
