DESERTION is an ultra epic yet depressing and emotional album on the collapse of humanity and ecology. This album contains the best works I have created for decade with crafty sound design and thoughtful production. Enjoy!

I've produced 5 additional tracks since Collapse, that built on similar concepts, arrangement and composition to it. However, each track will feature its own unique and out-of-this-world sound design, as to showcase the creativity I have been enjoying to work with. When I will finish the 10th track, this album will be released sometime next month.
Collapse is just the beginning of this ultra-epic, dystopian, post-industrial and spine-chilling ride.
I'll also release the album for free, including free of use for anything, commercial and non commercial.
Stay tuned! Happy Halloween!

Music is the mean of communication, reaching into the unknown and open up their heart and mind. But beyond that, few musicians have attempted to expand further into the idea that music can be as educational as it being inspirational. This post is going to explain that concept, about music could be the most powerful education process and tool in order to speak the unknown and reach deep into the topics you wish to communicate with them.
Often those who composed complex works like an orchestral piece or cinematic work like to treat their music like storytelling mechanism. The problem with this approach is that your works going to be a literal linear experience. It does not flourish nor empower the audience. Once the work finished running, it's going to be locked in the mind of listeners as a single-go entity, as best example why trailer music sounds good at the first run, yet they are very shallow and poorly designed.
Some believed that giving their music some sort of vocal settings, like a motif or designated melodic contents of their work could capture the audience, this approach is often being misused and ended up missing the point of music being communicational entity. The problem with this approach is that in the long run, it becomes generic and there haven't new flourishing ideas coming from the method of creating specific chord progression or melodies.
Music is composed by sounds from this world, therefore it should be the representation or interpretation of world.
The complexity of your work should be determined by the quality of your relationship with sounds, and not what you going to use. Music should speak the language of the world and interconnect your audience into the real world by the medium of sounds you manipulated in your work.
Music should be used to empower those who still seeking the way out of this world. While music cannot give absolute solution to certain condition, nor anything else could, music can be used to construct a temporal reality for the oppressed who seek to escape this reality that killing them. In short, music can work similarly to a type of psychological painkiller. We often look to music when we are sad, when we are angry, when we need some kind of distraction. Music works excellently as a form of emotional relief, whether to intake or to release negativity in our botched life.
As musicians, we should understand how music communicate with the world around us, and with our audience. We should ever understand the material condition of the listeners, and how our music could help to shape the world in a way that to ease the suffering. Which bring it to the third jewel.
Material condition affects everything we do and live by, it encircles our reality that we have to wake up everyday and find the means of survival. As mentioned before, music is the interpretation of the world, and therefore it can be used to explain, relate and connect the material condition of the audience to the musicians. This symbiotic relationship of musician and listener should be mutual and interconnecting. The mutual relationship should only halt when the material condition cease to affect both audience and musician. This mutual relationship should be respected and tread carefully, any change to the relationship can only be adjusted by the criteria of mutual consent between audience and musicians.
As mentioned, the symbiotic relationship build deeper connection between listener and the composer. This mutually benefits both sides and balanced out the positivism. This is the basics of mutual aid. It empowers the struggle within material condition of both musicians and listeners, and in extended to the ecology, the reality, and the world that your music could be used to educate the despair.

Anyway, here is the 10 famous musicians whom you have no idea they are anarchists.
Yep that Björk. She's a living wonder and her works are the most creative shit you could listen to. But did you know that Björk started out as an anarcho-punk musician? Björk stayed true to anarchy her whole life and incorporated the philosophy of freedom of association to fuel her music and art.
In sound design and revolutionary musical innovation, the name John Cage often comes up. But did you know in 1991, John Cage wrote a letter to renowned Spanish artist and anarchist Esther Ferrer, asked her what was anarchism. And Esther Ferrer responded that radicalized John Cage and aligned himself as an anarchist. This anarchist article explained how John Cage used anarchy as influence for his legendary work of art and music.
A card-carrying anarcho-syndicalist Wobbly just like me, but unlike me, Tom Morello can drive you wild with his guitar riff. Tom Morello started off as a member of Rage Against The Machine. Tom Morello quickly lived up to be another greatest protest song composer.
No surprise that the founder and lead singer of Against Me! is an anarchist. She's also a trans woman. By far they are my favorite punk band.
