Hamartia is a collection of songs recorded over 18 months in multiple rain-soaked downtown apartments in Portland Oregon.
The secret to all of my acts of creation is simple:
Begin with an image of your face in the mirror, polish it, then remove all traces of yourself.
I'm not yet certain if beauty or destruction is more inspiring, so I've done my best to balance the two. The album is a journey through the unnerving graces and wiles of fractal modernity.
I want to sincerely thank all of my teachers and co-stars of this album. A special thanks to Nick O'Donnell, Aaron Knudson, Elliot King, Mom and Dad, Mikola Accuardi, Talen Couey & Matt Zeltzer. The eternal curiosity of the confused and zealous daemon bard upon my shoulder will likely grant me many more years of spontaneous creation, so I thank it too.
