about

Set Course for Andromeda is my first full-length album since Invent the Universe back in 2012 and to make up for the long wait, I decided that I would go all out with a 76-minute double album.

The first disc is a collection of songs which have no thematic tie to each other, but were instead intended to be very progressive and very diverse. Many of the songs included in the first disc are some of my longest as well. Each track is meant to harshly cut into the next, hopefully highlighting just how different each of the songs on the first disc are.

The second disc is one 29-minute song broken up into 6 parts, and is meant to follow a sort of ‘hero’s journey’. The twist is that the hero is an alien Andromedan and the space cadets from the first track of disc 1 are observing it after barely making it to Andromeda. Musically, I wanted ‘The Andromedan’ to be nothing like I have ever done before, distinct from both the first disc and from all my previous work.

I hope you all enjoy ‘Set Course for Andromeda’!
