I have gotten back to working on some visual artwork pieces recently. It has been about 10 years since I really sat down and did work like this, unless I was working on an album or book cover, and it feels really good to get back at it!

As a young teenager, around 1995, I began creating artwork to go with the poetry I began writing in hopes of one day singing for a band. By the late 90’s I was recording with several music projects, (mainly Breech Doll and Another Earthly Dimension) and in addition to the music, I supplied much of the album artwork. This continued throughout my music career.

2000 – Dark Days, Silver Linings – Traditional Collage on Book Cover

Fast forward to the early 2000s, I was fronting Media Violence and Neuroexorcism, but I was also doing a lot more art pieces for the sheer satisfaction of the creative process. Influenced by artists (musicians and writers) such as Rozz Williams, Genesis P-orrige, and William Burroughs, collage and mixed-media became my primary form of visual expression. I would spend hours in my college dorm collecting and photo-copying imagery I found aesthetic, moving, or provocative in some way and assembling it into 100s of pieces of art. During this time, I often aged my work with dirt, chemicals, and fire which probably would not have made the campus police and fire department very happy.

Being an individual always ready to embrace technology and use it as a tool, I moved over to digital collage as it provided limitless possibilities. It allows the artist to manipulate and replicate in a way that scissors and glue could never do and you can see many examples of this work in my gallery.

From 2010 to 2020, I did not do much visual art other than album and book cover design, but this year I decided to get back to it and to allow my creativity to run rampant again. Today, I find inspiration in my surroundings and my wife’s artwork. Provocation and social commentary are not really where my head is at anymore. I enjoy beginning with a single image or idea and letting the piece take shape on its own. It has become a lot like my writing, I let the work tell me where it wants to go, and I hang on for the ride.

I am currently offering prints of my newer work through Fine Art America but will be adding other options for purchase over time.

Here is some of the stuff I have been working on:

NOW STREAMING – AGGRESSIVE ATTACK – FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT

The 2009 debut album by AGGRESSIVE ATTACK is now available on Apple Music (All other streaming services soon).

Some might call it an EP with a remix EP tacked onto the end of it. I always thought of it as 6 songs “looked at two different ways.” I never wanted there to be any indication of which mix was the original. When I was putting it together my idea was what if after track 6 I said, “or the album could have gone this way…”

Featuring hard edged industrial anthems: “FIGHT OR FLIGHT,” “IF IT BLEEDS,” and “GASOLINE,” FULL FRONTAL ASSAULT is probably one of the heaviest purely electronic albums that I ever did.

MEDIA VIOLENCE – NOW STREAMING ON APPLE MUSIC

Four MEDIA VIOLENCE albums are now streaming on Apple Music.

  • 2005 – FALLING INTO FLIGHT – Featuring: “But A Dream” and “It’s Destroyed”
  • 2006 – AMONG GHOST MEN – Featuring: “Selfish Pig” and “My God (Take It Away)”
  • 2007 – THE HUMAN SEQUENCE – A collection of songs from the 3 MV EPS: UNHINGING THE HUMAN MACHINE (2007), THE SKYMAN EP (2005), and THE INFINITE SEQUENCE (2004)
  • 2009 – THE GREAT COLLAPSE – Featuring: “A Game of Will” and “Animal Man”

These albums will be available on all streaming sites soon, including: Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Pandora, and more!

LATEST RELEASE – NEUROEXORCISM – SONGS OF LOVE AND DESTRUCTION

NOW AVAILABLE ON BANDCAMP

NEW RELEASE! – Ladies and gentlemen, I just dropped this album this morning. The record was created over 4 years ago but archived and never released. However, I believe it showcases some of my finest ambient and instrumental work. These were songs written 2014-2016.

If you are a fan of Skinny Puppy, Cevin Key, Aphex Twin, Autechre etc… You will probably notice some of their influence in the work.

I’m in the process of uploading most of my catalogue to all of the streaming services so that they are available for all. All of the Aggressive Attack records and a selection of the Media Violence records will soon be available on Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify.

I struggle with being a reclusive creative personality. I’ve spent the majority of my life creating work that gets shoved in a trunk. Time to let it out. This has been a long time coming.
