Well, this page needs a bit of updating, which hopefully I'll get to pretty soon.
A quick update though on the Incandescence world.
The project has now recorded EIGHT albums, with more in the works.
The first 4 were all with a good amount of 'normal' length songs, then there were 3 albums that had tracks over an hour long on them, more as soundscapes rather than 'proper' songs, and then album eight was a remix album, where I tackled a dozen songs by other people, including King Crimson, Necrophagist, Kampfar, Twin Zero and more. These are all available, so get in touch if you are interested.

ON THIS PAGE, ALL THE TRACKS FROM THE FIRST TWO INCANDESCENCE ALBUMS ARE AVAILABLE TO LISTEN TO. I'LL HOPEFULLY GET MORE POSTED UP PRETTY SHORTLY.

A MYSPACE PAGE HAS BEEN CREATED AT HTTP://WWW.MYSPACE.COM/INCANDESCENCEUK WITH DETAILS FOR BUYING ALL THE ALBUMS, AND ALSO THERE ARE A FEW OTHER LATER SONGS ON THERE. KEEP CHECKING BACK :-)
Why this name?
I really like the word itself, it seems to fit a variety of mood, whether the music is dark and solitary or bright and lively. Flames are intriguing and hopefully this project may prove to be over the years.
Do you play live?
Not played live with Incandescence, but played around 250 shows all over Europe with all my past bands Canvas, Tangaroa and Narcosis, and current band RETH - Click here for the soundclick page. Also done a few other shows with Dimitrodak and Bathroom City.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It IS a fantastic tool for getting the smaller bands around whereas it would normally take thousands of pounds of advertising, a lot of lucky breaks etc. I can understand why the bigger bands are saying it's not a good thing, but it seems to have lessened the gap between big and small bands a great deal.
Tangaroa had around 8,000 plays on MP3.com, as did Eye of Phetkanha and I personally have made some great friends and contacts from download sites, as it is also made easier to chat to the people who are into the same kind of things as yourself.
The internet is the greatest invention ever when used in the right hands.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
As long as they weren't chasing me to compromise anything about the music, then why not?
Band History:
Solo project of Paul. Ex member of Canvas (Sounds and Samples), Tangaroa and Narcosis (Bass). Also done ambient project Eye of Phetkanha with Moof. Current member of Reth, and also been involved in a few other random projects and recordings (F****ing Hostel, Slam).

Incandescence is an electro project that has no pigeonholing, over the course of xx amount of releases in the future, there will be everything from doom ambience to more upbeat, odd, twisted, jazzy noise and beats.
Your influences?
Everyone and everything is an influence. What is the point in being on this Earth if you don't make use of everything you see, hear and come across in the daily routine?

Bands I love and that have changed my life:-
Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Nile, Cryptopsy, Botch, Gorgoroth, Emperor, Enslaved, Aphex Twin, Radio Massacre International, Squarepusher, Coalesce, Catharsis, King Crimson, Orbital.

I have literally thousands of CD's, and every single one has played a part in bringing me to the place I am in now, musically and generally.
Favorite spot?
I like my bed! Also a major fan of Leeds where I am from, and abroad, I loved the Czech Republic the most.

Favourite city would, at the moment have to be either Prague for the pure surrealism I felt whilst out there for a few days on tour, or Leeds, my home town, where I have lived all my life. I don't think I could wish to be in a more vibrant, cool, lively, friend filled place.
Equipment used:
Soundforge and Fruity Loops currently the main two programmes I use.
