enlightenment religion of ourselves, we have manifested a serpent
of consumerism which now coils back upon us. It seduces us with our own bait as we betray the
better instincts of
our nature and the future of our own world. We throw ourselves out of our own
garden. We poison ourselves to the edges of an endless sleep.
Animated Violence Mild
was written throughout 2018, at
Blanck Mass’
stud
io outside of
Edinburgh. These eight
tracks
are the diary of a year of work steeped in hon
ing craft, self
-
discovery, and grief
-
the latter of which reared its head at the final hurdle of producing this
record and created a whole separate narrative: grief, both for what I have lost personally, but
also
in a global sense, for what we as a species have lost and handed over to our blood
-
sucking
counterpart, consumerism, only to be ravaged by it.
I believe that many of us have wil
l
fully allowed our survival instinct to become engulfed by the
snake we
birthed. Anim
ated

brought to life by human
ki
nd. Violent

insurmountable and
wild beyond our control. Mild

delicious.
This is perhaps the most concise body of work I have written to date. Having worked extensively
throughout my musical life with dramatics, narrative, and ‘melody against all odds’, these tracks
are the most direct and honest yet. The level of articulation
in these tracks
surpasses anything I
have utiliz
ed before.
