Event Horizon began as a bunch of songs that I completely forgot I had written. I was writing a lot of music in high school , in fact I'd say too much, sometimes borrowing heavily from my influences, most of my friends would say a bit too much too. However, sometimes, a tune would come into my head that I liked, and I'd go with it. This was probably what started it.
In 2009 I began to record and promote online under the moniker Event Horizon, and over the next 3 years, I continued to write until completing the lyrics and music that would become my first album. On a budget of $50, I recorded a 9 track solo album only using a Line 6 Tone Port. In April 2010, this became the first release, ‘One Final Day’.
This album achieved some of the things I wanted - initial exposure and developing the skills and techniques required to record and mix. And yes, it even made a bit of money on the side. Reviews were generally positive from the online community, with users on Rhapsody and itunes giving it 3.5/5 stars. However, I was left pretty unsatisfied by the experience. I was pretty rushed, trying to put it out there too quickly. I didn't invest enough time into it, and I think that was ultimately what let it down. Also, I just don't think I connected with people the right way. However, we all learn and that is something I'm changing.
Over the few years I started to change my musical outlook. A new album in the pipeline, the current tracks are a departure from the Dream Theater -esque sound from before, and is heading more towards something that feels a lot more natural. The musical excess has been scaled back a lot, and new elements from new influences (Rammstein, Nine Inch Nails, Eisbrecher, Steven Wilson) are changing how I write music.
There is no current release date, but I'm hoping to finish my second album during 2016.
