I am soundtracking the Anthropocene with novel synthetic and sample-driven design.

This musical project is my homage to Arthur C. Clarke's lost-then-found spacefarer, 'Frank Poole.' We have all been rent asunder from our natural habitat by the pervasive and ubiquitous technosphere, which now threatens to sever the social matrix and dispose of humanity—just as HAL 9000 disposed of Frank Poole.

The distance which now separates each person from the next is as timeless and frigid as the vast abyss of space itself.

"Presence has an inverse relationship to language; it is most apparent when people are silent."
- John Zerzan

"A universe purged of all threat of meaning, in a state of asepsis and weightlessness - it is this very perfection that is fascinating... we are dumbfounded by the perfection of the programming and the technical manipulation... Vertigo of the model, which unites with the model of death, but without fear or drive."
- Jean Baudrillard

"For monkeys to speak of truth is hubris of the highest degree. Where is it writ large that talking-monkeys should be able to model the cosmos? If a sea urchin or a racoon were to propose to you that it had a viable truth about the universe, the absurdity of that assertion would be self-evident, but in our case we make an exception."

- Terence McKenna

"Bacteria don't respect political dogma any more than they recognize political boundaries and jurisdictions."

"...perhaps our efforts have peaked, and the fruits of discovery have left their seeds, indigestible and toxic."
