REPTOID + New Noise

 Making music the way I do in Reptoid is the most challenging thing I’ve ever done musically. I have an arsenal of gear at my disposal but only four limbs to control it all simultaneously. I don’t get to just freely play drums, the drumming has to be structured in a way that triggers the rest of the sounds. I’m essentially attempting to condense a 3 or 4 piece band into a single member. The limitations of making music this way feels like a leash that just gets tighter the more I tug on it but the music and the performance have essentially become the tugging and what was once a restriction has become the final result. It has stretched my limits creatively and physically to become Reptoid and an entirely different creature has been created in the process.”
