Album Notes
I spent a lot of time conceptualizing and creating this album, in total, I'm releasing it on the tail end of 6 months. It is by far the most effort I have put into anything that I wasn't told to do by someone else. The feeling is invigorating, and although I expect few people to listen to it (and even fewer to read this and recognize the artist depth I attempted to put into this album) I am so proud of being able to bring to culmination something from nothing and call it my art. I would recommend this to anyone. Please follow the artist drive you feel, do it for yourself, you may create something better than me or worse than me, it doesn't matter, art is what gives me life and if it does the same for you DO IT

So far about 10 people have heard snippets of this, and they have all given positive reviews (although I'm always concerned those are just sympathy "good job" type of opinions). There was a lot of thought put into the crafting of all of everything, and I will not lie and say it was easy. It was not. There were many frustrating nights. That being said, I look forward to this being the first of many albums! Hopefully I make some friends along the way!

Oh, and I call this stuff Avant-Garde ArtPunk
