Haunted Moment In Manayunk.
Haunted Moment In Manayunk.

This particular collection was captured during a time when I had been feeling the urge to leave Philadelphia. I would move to NYC just after it’s completion. A Certain Finality was recorded between Jan-March in 1997. I was a bit sad about what my Philadelphia experience had become. I had lost touch with college friends […]

Odds and an End.
Odds and an End.

Compiled with some odd outtakes from session experiments in Dillsburg, PA; NYC and a couple of collaborations in Philadelphia after that, Aftershock is a tattered collection of non-coherent 4-track music and was the final DarkMatter project of the 90’s. Filled with influences from Sonic Youth, Merzbow, Throbbing Gristle, Current 93 and Hafler Trio, I reveled in […]

Standing on the pier of all I have known, I plunge into the deep.
Standing on the pier of all I have known, I plunge into the deep.

When you are standing in the middle of all you know and find doubt in everything, there is a will to take a desperate risk to find something a little better, or to find an end. Remember The Surface – a figurative story of a soul that is swept away in an ocean of doubt, […]

Moving through strange, enclosed spaces.
Moving through strange, enclosed spaces.

When you are lost and cannot retreat, you move forward into an unknown with the desire to find an exit to anything familiar. This collection of work is the second in the “rebirth” series and is a continuation of the narrative begun on the album Remember The Surface – a figurative story of a soul […]

The Surveying of Venus.
The Surveying of Venus.

The album ƒ£ø(¥ 4(3 – four pieces of music inspired by images of Venus’s surface. It was 2001. I was searching around on the internet for images of the moon, while musing on my next sonic project – the discovered and undiscovered landscapes in our human history of exploration. I wanted to sonically describe a deeply personal […]

On The Perimeter (2003)
On The Perimeter (2003)

On The Perimeter from the unfinished album Find Your Own Damn Way Since this series is a flashback of sorts, I’m starting with the most recent project and working backwards toward the beginning. On The Perimeter was the last creation I had made under the DarkMatter moniker. I had created this piece in 2002 and […]

DarkMatter: A History
DarkMatter: A History

Ever since I discovered the subject of “dark matter” I was enthralled with its mysterious qualities and suggested implications of the origins of the universe. Dark matter is matter that neither emits nor scatters light or other electromagnetic radiation, and so cannot be directly detected via optical or radio astronomy. Dark matter is believed to constitute 83% […]
