This is a one-man studio-based outfit which has two streams. One is to produce songs, with vocals, in a fairly conventional format, that you might expect a "real" band to play. The other is to produce instrumentals with experimental electronic sounds, the stranger the better, but hopefully still appealing. I love that virtual world full of beauty and weirdness. Perhaps that's where I'll go when I die.
Why this name?
That's just what the material is - unread, unknown, unheard, undiscovered.
Do you play live?
Not these days but playing drums live is the biggest thrill ever (except for one thing maybe).
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Total and absolute revolution, and flow of opportunity for people like us.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Very eclectic, from classical to big-sound rock to electronic delicacy. Loved Brian Eno, Bowie, Devo, Pere Ubu, Tortoise, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada and countless others. Nowadays severely affected by glitch, e.g Mokira, Oval.

Cosmology and quantum mechanics - the new hope for romanticism. I'll leave it at that.
