New Epiphora Album

I know, you’re like “What?” Relax, this isn’t a collection of brand new tunes. It starts with a simple concept. While recording the songs for Sansbeat, you can imagine how much I was dying to write a song with drums. I felt that some of the Sansbeat songs could have a whole new personality if they had drums. So I took my two favorite tunes (Awareness and Division) and gave them drums. These are the first two songs on my new album called Helvetica, a collection of unreleased extras. It will be an evolving collection of songs that don’t really fit with any particular project I’m working on.



I went to college in the fall of 1989. In the spring of 1991, toward the end of my sophomore year, it was time to consider a summer job. Like any college, UNH had its share of job fairs, where any student could go to see what opportunities were available. The one thing I thought would be most interesting (in my 19 year old wisdom) was to be a camp counselor at a summer youth camp. Those who know me today would wonder why this would ever cross my mind, but at age 19, I hadn’t made many life decisions yet.


I have been labeling my music as electronic from the beginning, mostly because I usually use some form of electronic instruments in it. But when I go off into the world and seek out electronic music by label, I am presented with a variety of stuff that seems synthetic, repetitive, unnatural, and largely unappealing to me, and (not oddly) I don’t feel that way about most of what I write. Because of that, I hesitate to label my music as electronic because I don’t want potential fans who might share my experience with the electronic category, and I also don’t want to falsely advertise my music to the crowd seeking the very sound I’m not creating.
