Immediate download of 12-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more). Paying supporters also get unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
Since this is a gapless album, I recommend that you download the highest possible quality if you plan on burning to CD. Use a program such as the latest iTunes or Nero to burn without any audio gaps between the tracks and you should be golden. If you purchase "Diametry" once, I will allow you access to all formats available of the album (FLAC, MP3, Ogg, WAV, etc.), so email me if you have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. During this presale the album is only $5 so jump on top of that before it shoots up to $10 on the day of the release! I
will be running a promo for some folks to get this album free, so stay tuned. Lastly, all of the money this album receives goes directly toward creating a physical release of this album. People who pay $5 will receive special limited edition stickers in the mail. $10 or more will receive a CD when they finally get around to being printed. The more people who gift money on this album, the further it will go toward becoming a real physical item (I'd love to see it go on vinyl...) I'm driven toward this happening. As a poor artist, I just need help! Thank you very much for supporting me and my music. Remember to always support the artists you love DIRECTLY, from the most obscure artist to the most popular! Even if it's on iTunes, the only way to ensure that your gift is fully received by the person you intended it for is to buy through sites such as Bandcamp! I hope you enjoy "Diametry" as much as I enjoyed making it....more
"Diametry" is a work about duality. It is an awakening from a nightmare. It is an escape into a dream. An ascension from madness into sublimity.
Two diametric objects are binary opposites of eachother, such as water and land, but are connected symbolically and symbiotically. Both are necessary to the survival and existence of the other, each completing the circular motion of life. Two diametric people share more in common with each other than anyone else in the world.
"Diametry" is a story about transformation.

For Stef. I couldn’t have put this together without you (and your beautiful paintings.)
Thank you to my family, for everything really. Thank you to the friends I made, had, and/or lost during the making of this work. Thank you especially to James, Nathan, and Ash for your ongoing support and advice. Of course, thank you to everyone at IDMf (I can’t name you all but to the in10s IRC: w0lolol\). You are all my inspiration. Lastly, thank you, the listener.
