about

Story of Nothing, Story of Naught... 'storynaught'. Did our crazy world arise from a primordial nothingness? This is a melodic, percussive electronic album with a nice flow. In fact, the tracks ran together seamlessly on the original CDs (i broke them apart for MP3).

This was the one project of mine which seemed to generate a bit of attention. Steve Lafreniere listed 'storynaught' in Artforum magazine. Internet radio SomaFM began playing a couple tracks and i generally got positive feedback from listeners. The album has an appealing emotional tone and even contains a couple surprise samples. But i guess i wasn't ready to promote the album much further, so i just kept on writing new stuff....

And for the record, i was at that point recording on a Mac G4 which could slice and dice digital audio, add effects and so forth. I thought i rushed on 'cypherhead' so i probably took a little more time with 'storynaught'. My mastering skills still needed improvement.

Track Name: blixolee
hoping
and trying
and learning
and doing
and waiting
and knowing
Track Name: o-pogo
i will try
i will try
everything i said before
it doesn't matter now
now i'm a million miles away
there is no destination
only scenes along the way
and nothing matters
nothing is all i have
Track Name: spine
why do they all look the same
and act the same
could they be connected to a central brain
like a mainframe controling every thought they think
and every move they make
maybe i'm just jealous
or maybe i feel bad for you
because we all want to belong
Track Name: nosubject
no subject matter
this is how i feel
Track Name: ranches
some guys spend all their lives on one thing
on one thing
some guys spend all their lives on mountains
in mountains
and that applies to me
that applies to me
that applies to me
well the first part anyway
some guys spend all their lives on one thing
and some guys spend all their live on horses
and ranches
