INFO
After a long creative block with my music (oh, about five years), I decided it was time to make another insane noise EP, just to get reacquainted with my old music-making tools and techniques, and to learn some new ones in the process. Traditionally, my series of "Sugarbrain" side-project EPs would consist of 50 tracks, each clocking in at 30 seconds, a minute, or a minute & a half, all with titles that had some sort of play on the word "bug" (which I had an obsession with when I started the series in 1999). I decided to keep with tradition for this one.

Like Sugarbrain 1 & 2, this is absolutely bonkers. No concern (or desire) for making "real" music, but rather a desire for pure experimentation. Like it's predecessors, I used this album as a "testing ground" for new techniques. SB3 is abrasive, funny, and strange like the others, but unlike them, this time I decided to improve my mastering / mixing abilities. I still kept the chaos in place, but I tried to make it "fine-tuned" chaos, if you get my drift. It was a fun project.

INFO
This album is pretty schizophrenic, and had a difficult birth. Before I started it, my plan was to make an album focusing around Japanese themes, as I'd just gotten back from my 4th trip to Japan, and came back with a ton of samples on my minidisk. Unfortunately, a little while into the making of the album, I became incredibly frustrated, and hit a creative block. A year later, after I set my goals back to a more obtainable level, I got back to work and felt quite recharged.  As for the sound, it sounds pretty dark and abrasive, but danceable.

The original version of this album was missing "Hell Dimension", and instead had a track called "Beat Suite". For the wider release of the album - through Pish Posh Records - I swapped those tracks, and also made minor tweaks to a couple songs.

DEATH RAY VISION EP - 2003
Death Ray Vision EP
COVER
INFO
My last release under the name "Evil Eye", before changing the name to "Macro" at the end of 2003. For this EP, I enlisted the help of Patric, AKA "Such,Broken Glass" for two remixes. (okay, I asked for one, but he surprised me with two. Awesome!) This soon led to us doing an album together (see: "We Chose These Children to Live"). Also included is a remix I did of the track (Death Ray Vengeance), as well as a live version done on Ableton.

INFO
Kind of hard to put into words, and basically all over the map. I wanted to show my love for '80's new wave and electro, without it seeming too contrived. Lots of "microsurgery" of beat structures. There's also a little bit of drum & bass in there. When I made this album, I had just bought a Korg Electribe ES-1, and was totally infatuated with it and used it on just about every track. This album, like Space Junk, was released under the old Evil Eye name, but has been retroactively brought under the Macro banner, as it's emblematic of the direction my music has turned since 2003.

INFO
Mostly spacey and atmospheric (compared to my former stuff).  Music inspired by 70's and '80s sci-fi movies.  My music took a big leap on this album, in terms of musical structure and depth. Despite that this was originally released under the old "Evil Eye" name, I feel that this is my first album to reflect the more grown-up sound that caused me to change my music name.
