Current Musical Projects:-


Coherer, Cybernet 1202, Town and County and Pennycross Coven are my four current musical projects. Coherer is a classic electro project that combines electronic instruments and synthesizers to create a unique, but often dark futuristic sound. Cybernet 1202 is an electro cooperative project that uses samples, beats and bass to create an alien-inspired futuristic soundscape. Lastly, Town and County and Pennycross Coven combine elements of hauntology, ambient, folk and darkwave music. Together, these four projects represent a broad range of musical styles and explore a variety of themes, from futuristic dystopias to timeless folk narratives.

Purposeful nothingness here,
