…a 13 song serialized album of electronic music released in the year 2013 and beyond. One song was digitally released each month for 13 months.

Through the project I intended to explore various dichotomies: that of acoustic versus synthetic sound, calming versus frenetic tempos, building discordant tension versus gratifying harmonic resolution. The span of a year long production cycle, changes in season, changes in mood, were the emotional catalyst for each month’s release.

Users were able to register and purchase a subscription to the project as it was developed. Imagine buying an album and following its narrative as it is being written, as you would a serialized novel or comic book.

The final song was released on 01.13.14.
