about

Dither is an album that encompasses an abundance of musical genres and features epic scores, cinematic production, and flawless vocal talents. Electronic music in such genres as glitch pop, neo-classical, and post-industrial are combined with strings and other organic elements to create what can only be described as post-orchestral electronica.

This album is my eighth full length release. It has been in the making for years now, beginning its life shortly after the release of 2010's Stop Becoming. For the first time in my musical career I have decided to add lyrics and vocals to the music, provided by my talented and musical friends.

The finished album features fourteen new post-orchestral electronica tracks and runs for over an hour. There are a total of seven tracks featuring guest vocalists such as Kathryn Dearborn, Damien Hendry of Ocean of You, and Andrew Kay.

Track Name: The Dead Things We Are Made Of (feat. Kathryn Dearborn)
anyone knows
you can't change the past
but you can't forget
despite that fact
what's slipped right through the cracks
you will never get another chance
what you could have done
is now irrelevant
it's irreversible
call it providence
call it whatever you want
but this fate is all you've got

it's all right
you don't have to fight
anymore
don't pretend
stop fearing the end
it's not the end
the dead things we are made of
will live again

sing me to sleep

it's all right
you don't have to fight
anymore
don't pretend
stop fearing the end
it's not the end
the dead things we are made of
will live again
Track Name: The Falling Quarter (feat. Kathryn Dearborn)
i can't decide if i'll sleep tonight
or if i'll wake up at last
the black debate
another night at the stake
thinking i might light the match
am i a witch
or just a powerless vixen
trying to transcend her past

god is pain
god is love
i find them both in my reflection
there's still oxygen in my blood
the end will come soon enough
what is strength
is this enough
it's everything but giving up
there's still oxygen in my blood
the end will come soon enough
don't rush

something like artemis
but caught in my own snare
hunting taxidermy gods
made in the image of animals

i don't pray to anyone
seeking truth where there is none
there's no shepherd if you're a lamb
the wolves have come
to lead the damned

what is strength
is this enough
it's everything but giving up

there's no shepherd if you're a lamb
the wolves have come
to lead the damned

god is pain
god is love
i find them both in my reflection
there's still oxygen in my blood
the end will come soon enough
what is strength
is this enough
it's everything but giving up

i don't pray to anyone
seeking truth where there is none
there's no shepherd if you're a lamb
the wolves have come
to lead the damned
Track Name: Never Turn Away (feat. Andrew Kay)
the sky would clear
the rain would leave you glimmering
it feels so near
each falling teardrop glistening
a golden year
preserved in time, still shimmering
the words you hear
will prove that you weren't listening

you wake, alone
the weather clouds your vision
you see what's shown
there's only one decision
the mind you own
each memory's revision
is set in stone
or lost with each incision

and when you take the blame
be sheltered by hypocrisy
if ever you feel shame
it takes your fears away
so let your thoughts dissolve
be trapped in your obduracy
you'll find it takes resolve
to know you will not stray
and you must never turn away

don't change your mind today
never turn away
make the choice to stay
and never turn away
don't change your mind today
never turn away
be sure in what you say
and never turn away
Track Name: Broken Source (feat. Kathryn Dearborn)
he looks in the mirror but he doesn't see his face
just the gaze from some exhibit of the human race
sometimes held back by invisible restraints
but he always breaks his cage
yeah, he always gets away

impartially apostate, don't let it get to your head
if he stabs you in the back or leaves you for dead
if you want to tag along, it's on his terms
it's not that he doesn't like you, just unconcerned
sadistic apathy thrives on catastrophe

you'll never understand
he took me by the hand
and we ran

he needs to take the wheel
to show you the right way to feel
it can be nice, you know
to let the robot take control

inside your reverie
you build yourself a new body
synthetic android
but you're just a schizoid

come back to humanity
don't revert back to your fantasy
disposed of everyone you knew
but i still think there's hope for you
Track Name: Betrayal (feat. Damien Hendry)
take this space
and dress it up
you're running from the things
that make you
who you are
take this grace
and mess it up
you ruin things of beauty
just to keep your feelings far

say it softly
say it softly in my ear
say it slowly
for all the world to hear

take this space
and dress it up
you're running from the things
that make you
who you are
take this grace
and mess it up
you ruin things of beauty
just to keep your feelings far

you stabbed me in the back
you treated me like crap
you put me through hell
pushed my over the edge
and now i've got to ask
what the hell have you done to me
Track Name: Glass Girl (feat. Kathryn Dearborn)
itching, scratch
open wound, can't relax
these things shall pass
old rapture never lasts
swallowing your DNA
another night going to waste
emotional debris
remember how things used to be

am i depraved
is it too late for me
i can't contain my impulses
i'm begging, vindicate me

oh, holy arm of man
what we now call seraphim
i am at your hallowed whim
i'm dirty, consecrate me
i now rebuke my sins
i will obey, i give in
i just want a home again
i'm dying, stimulate me

i just want a home
we both know
no one would want me

and when you need something fragile to break
i'm your glass girl, your glass girl
and if you need something dead to ache
i'm your cold case, your lost chase
when you need something to break
i'm your glass girl, glass girl
Track Name: For the World is Hollow (feat. Kathryn Dearborn)
the seas that glisten
the winds in her sands
are just a disguise

i heard a rumour
i heard that the earth
is empty on the inside

it's so hard to decipher
the truth gets so obscure
the promise of a mission
the hope of a cure

i see it in their faces
suppressing, questioning
it's never easy for us
but it's nicer to believe

they don't know what to ask
they can't choose who will lead
the faith is hard to swallow
but it's harder to conceive

in fear they will follow
because they don't know

the world is hollow
