about

Compiled from years of experimentation, Thirteen is My Favorite Prime deviates from my usual fare of downtempo ambient. I pushed my boundaries and set out to create music that moves the body and engages the mind. Like my other music, most songs have a narrative associated with it and it's up to the listener to interpret what that story is.

Included in the download is a "commentary" file which talks about each song individually and offers a little more insight into the creative process for me.

about

Abstraction Minneapolis, Minnesota

Once upon a time, there was a boy. This boy wasn't special in any particular way, but the world that surrounded him seemed different than those his age. Patterns would coalesce out of music for him, offering rich sepia textures or the vibrant void of a clear blue sky. Songs became elaborate and fantastical stories, meant to entertain the mind's eye as much as its ears. ... more

Track Name: Clockwork Friends
What you have is nothing more than a system of wires and circuits. It can show feelings only to the extent of which you program it to. It will be your friend no more than the table you built it on will be.
Track Name: Thirteen is My Favorite Prime
Earth's final pioneers will not venture into forgotten depths of the planet,
but into the cathedral of myriad stars laid above it.

Humanity will finally reach out from the deep well where it's slumbered,
and touch the tiny points of light suspended in unyielding darkness.
Track Name: Derelict
Contact is 50 meters... 20 meters... 10 meters... Contact made. Interlock established. Tethers still holding. I'm breaching the hull now.

...

Where the hell are we?
Track Name: On Poltergeists and Insomnia
If you've seen the things I've seen, friend, you wouldn't want to sleep either.
Track Name: Shudda Shades
--Sampled from 50 Cent's In Da Club--
You can find me in the club,
bottle full of bub.
Mana, I got what you need
if you need to feel a buzz.
I'm into havin' sex
I ain't into makin' love.
So come give me a hug
If you're into gettin' rubbed.
Track Name: Drop the Mic
Don't worry 'bout it, happens a lot when I'm right. I drop the mic.

Mmm, that sounds cool.
