Rothniel is my solo electronic project. Most of my stuff so far is simple, ambient, and experimental, intended to be audible representations of various concepts, memories, etc.
It's occurred to me that a lot of my stuff is pretty moody, but then, I suppose I'm a moody person. I like things bittersweet.
Hard to say. Time and I never were close friends. At some point, I began playing keyboard, then fiddled with the guitar and took up bass. This was mildly satisfying, but not nearly as much as it was to begin to plug my consciousness into the digital abyss. Only there could my nightmares and dreams incarnate to battle in front of my eyes. The real world is somewhere far above, or below...
I don't play live, I play dead. And yes, I like it.
