Sound / Music

Future Interior
My current songwriting project, active since 2015. "Slow music for fast times" indebted to 1990s rock, accompanied by a variety of contextual and sculptural sound (e.g. quiet oscillators/electronics, live shortwave radio, archival recordings).
-- The Disappearance Approach (forthcoming)
-- 3 Songs (2019)
-- Demo + various tracks (2016)

Nine of Swords
Hardcore / screamo crossover music formerly from Purchase, NY, currently from Philadelphia, PA. We have been active since 2013, and anticipated being more active in 2020. The world had other plans.

-- i can't stand my own face CS (2014)
-- s/t CS (2013)

upper chief
Solo project active 2011-2016. "Emo through a noise lens" / solo melodic hardcore about being a social justice warrior and perceived persecution.

-- an existence predicated upon manufactured necessity (2012)

Shore Country
Pop-punk songwriting project active 2013-2017 but still thinking about doing the full-band LP. Earnest, nervous, lovesick, attempting to take cues from Salinas Records and the places where folk punk ditched the banjo.
-- indoor recess (2017)
-- a happier state of being (2014)

Jack Tomascak + Segunda Etapa
High school songwriting and electronic music project, mentioned here solely because there's still documentation of this work on the internet beyond my control.
