|New Website Design Coming SoonMonday, January 27, 2014
I realize that I've been MIA for quite a while. I've been EXTREMELY busy for the past few months with other projects of mine, which may soon come to light. I'm still working on mostly the full-length, but I haven't forgotten about the EP. It's just that the ideas I've been coming up with fit more into the sound I'm looking for in the album right now rather than the EP. It's going to be way different than The Art of Creation. I really think it'll be way more experimental than that album. I've been messing around with a lot of varied song structures and odd time signatures, while maintaining a very organic and abstract sound. It's definitely going to be more guitar-based this time around, but you may not recognize the guitar in the songs. Also, I'm redesigning this website. I think it's really dated. Thank you all for your patience.
Third Full-Length AlbumSunday, June 2, 2013
I've officially begun work on my third full-length album. I'm still working on Retraced EP, but I'm trying to work on the two at the same time. The full-length won't be out until a few years but I'll post a few songs as I finish them and also depending on which ones I feel represent what I'm trying to do with the album.
I'll say this about it.... It won't sound anything like the first two albums and it will be LONG
. I'm going for something that goes much deeper than just songwriting. Don't expect to hear anything like The Art of Creation. As I've said before, I don't like repeating myself. I think it will be just as complex and layered as The Art of Creation, but don't expect to hear any machine sounds. I'm also using anything I can to make sounds to fit in this album, even sides of door frames and paintbrushes. I'm pretty sure I'll use well over 100 different things to make it. I'm hoping that I can put out around 2 hours worth of material for it because I feel like I've been writing enough songs to fill that time frame; and it won't be just filler songs. I plan on it having both vocal and instrumental tracks.
I'm very excited about this one. I've been excited about it for a while, ever since I knew the direction I wanted to pursue with it and the direction that I wanted to take SeKtoR 7 into. Other than that, I'm still working vigorously on Retraced EP. I keep trying to balance all of this with my other things that I like to do. If you're interested in what those are, check out my DeviantArt
page. Thank you all for being patient with me as always and hopefully it won't be long.
Actually Do Something For OklahomaWednesday, May 22, 2013
Following the tornado that happened in Oklahoma a couple of days ago, I found it absolutely neccessary to post this. Simply putting #PrayForOklahoma on your Twitter page doesn't help anything....
Actions speak louder than words ever will so if you really want to help, donate to the Red Cross
and give a family the money they need to help rebuild their homes or for hotel expenses as they're waiting for the damage to clear out.#ActuallyDoSomethingForOklahoma
Listen to The Art of Creation on YouTubeFriday, March 15, 2013
I have uploaded The Art of Creation
in its entirety from start to finish on YouTube. If you would like to listen to the album before making a choice to download it, you are more than welcome. Remember that the download of the album here is completely free of charge. I'm still working very slowly on Retraced EP, but I'm tediously working out the bad ideas that come along with any songwriting.
No More Physical Copies of AlbumsMonday, December 3, 2012
I've decided that I am not going to sell physical copies of the album anymore. You can download the MP3 versions completely free still, but I'm not going to sell a physical copy anymore. I'll include the album artwork in with each ZIP file for the downloads. In other news, I haven't yet started working on Retraced. I've been really busy with many other things, but I'm actually planning on starting it in the next week or so. It'll be a relatively quick release.... I hope. Anyways, thanks for always being patient with me and see you in 2013.
P.S. The world is not ending on the 21st, nor does the Mayan Calender have anything to do with the end of the world. Just wanted to put that on record.Close
Using SeKtoR 7 Music in Films/Videos/RemixesSaturday, October 13, 2012
I just want to put it out there that anyone who wants to use any of my work in their own videos, films, games, etc., has my discretion to do so. I leave these songs open to interpretation for people to do what they want with them. Also, if you want to remix any of my work.... I am completely open to that. All I ask is that you send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) and tell me so that I can listen to it because I enjoy listening to other people's work as well. Post it on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or whatever else you want, just as long as you tell me you're going to do it. Thanks again everyone. Look forward to working on Retraced.

People Exterminating Thousands of AnimalsSunday, January 1, 2012
It is with great disgust and a feeling of betrayal that I should have to bring this news upon you. For those of you who don't know, I am a huge supporter of animal rights. I think throughout most of my life, I've had better relationships with animals than I have people. I sought after a way in which I could help make whatever kind of a difference I could in the lives of animals that were being killed or tortured. So, using my ass instead of my brain, I decided I would join up with PeTA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).... or so they call it. Like many, I found the horrible truth of what Ingrid Newkirk was really doing. If you are unaware of this woman's actions, please take a few minutes and read this link: Ingrid Newkirk Should Resign
I have since burned every PeTA shirt that I own and cut off all of my funding to this hypocritical, two-faced organization. Help spread this news to all of your friends who are supporters of PeTA. Let them know the truth of the "most popular animals rights group in the world". If you have any questions or suggestions on ways to force her resign, please leave them in my questions box in the Guests
section. Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and reflect on it. It's been a pretty rough afternoon for me after hearing this. Better late than never....
Albums Now Free As MP3 DownloadMonday, November 7, 2011
I've decided that I'm going to give away every album that I create FREE
as an mp3 download on the site, including the first self-titled album. However, the physical albums will still have a price. I'm working with my distributors to ensure that I am able to set the lowest prices possible for them. You will need to click the link of the album you want to download below to receive the ZIP file. If you don't have a program to unzip the file, you can download 7-Zip
Music was NEVER about money for me, but rather a way to give a piece of my mind to those who are willing to hear it. I think it's only fair that I give back to the people who have supported and stood by my vision as an artist. Thank you so much! It means the world to me.... Really.
Questions and AnswersWednesday, May 25, 2011
Just a quick reminder: You may go to the Guests
section of the website and ask me any questions you would like about practically anything. I'll answer as many questions as I can and if it takes a few days for me to answer, it's because I'm extremely busy. Don't worry though. I will get to your questions. The only thing that I ask is that you don't ask anything too personal, e.g., family questions, questions about other fans, or anything that is explicit. Those types of questions will not be answered. Again, I try to be as thorough and elaborate as possible with my answers, so that you feel like you have a complete answer to your question. Thanks again.
Album Not Released in AugustWednesday, May 25, 2011
I have determined that there is actually no way I will have The Art of Creation ready by August. In fact, it may not be released until 2012. I've been working as much as possible on it and it's still not exactly where I want it to be. I will keep you all posted on when I have an exact date figured out. It won't be much longer though and I think it will be well worth the extra wait. Thank you all again for your continued support and patience.
Classical/Orchestral EPWednesday, April 13, 2011
I'm going to do a classical/orchestral reinterpretation of some songs from both SeKtoR 7 and The Art of Creation called Retraced EP
. I'll post a poll after the release of The Art of Creation, so that you all can vote on which six tracks you want me to reinterpret. I've posted the album cover for the EP below.
New Website UploadedTuesday, April 12, 2011
I've finally uploaded the new design for the website. I'll keep posting updates through here. I'm probably shooting for an August release for the album, but that isn't 100% determined yet. I've uploaded a few 30 second clips of some songs that are going on the album. Thanks again for your patience and support.
