more by the artist here:
Since my mother's passing in December 2016, I decided to change some of my compositional techniques. Instead of digital compositions, I make my body an instrument. Amplified textures and found sound, a mini modular synthesizer, lost files, sketches on tape loops, and my processed voice.
I made this album as a tribute to my mother. Our Gravity Ends is a late-night record. Reflections in the rain. Tear-soaked visions. Half-forgotten memories.
Suggestion: Listen to this sound work in isolation, with emptiness around you, take your shoes off, feel the texture of the ground beneath your feet, close your eyes.

"There’s a pretty cover here, although you’ll need to tilt your screen to see it. There can be hope in desolation, although it may take time to find it. Our Gravity Ends is an extremely morose album, inspired by the loss of the artist’s mother. The album is an invitation into grief." - A Closer Listen
"(his) most intimate work and an outstanding release..." - Can You Ear It?
"Un disco difficile che utilizza il suono per erigere invalicabili e ruvidi muri da cui risulta faticoso evadere. Da ascoltare immersi nel nulla." - So What
