No one said ascending would be easy. (There's a lot of low humming in this, so it may be hard to hear without headphones or with computer speakers.)


Do You Understand?

Hi there. I'm a writer/screenwriter. This is the first time I've shared my own music. It's electronic and certainly influenced by the likes of Richard H. Kirk, maybe a little Steven Reich. Samples include some famliar figures, plus Jimmy Swaggart shouting about the end times. Enjoy!
