S[K]IES is the moniker I use for my solo project. With a deep love for heavy metal and noise music at an early age, I created S[K]IES as a platform for necessary expression of this musical upbringing combining my formal percussive arts studies with my informal composition experiments. S[K]IES seeks to create visceral sonic experiences through the integration of percussion and live electronics that may draw listeners into an open state of mind for reflection and perhaps, for healing. Sounds can be brutal and psychedelic in nature and at times, calm and spacious.


Edges will mark the first release under the S[K]IES moniker on April 14, 2019 at 4pm EST. The album is an eight-movement work exploring different “edges” of my personality with each movement referencing specific memories and experiences I’ve had in recent years:

I. 500/1000

II. Edges Burned

III. 200/1000

IV. Carve

V. Old Song (burn it down)

VI. Glimpse

VII. Water no. 3 (We'll Get There)

VIII. Dreams of Glass We Knew
