Greetings, good people. It is with great pleasure that I can finally announce the release of my latest album, Background Processes. Instead of a Monster-0 release, this is a side project simply named “daemon.” Six years in the making, Background Processes is a collection of 25 songs I’ve been writing since 2003. It’s pretty different from the pop/rock stuff I produce as Monster-0. Instead, daemon is all relaxed, instrumental electronica with retro synths and lo-fi drum machines that should make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Some of these songs were commissioned for various theatre productions over the years; others haven’t been heard at all until now. All tracks were recorded in my bedrooms of Chicago and San Francisco.
Background Processes is 25 songs long for $10. Many of the tracks are rather short and I think the album works best as one piece to be listened to from start to finish. It’s now available as a CD and a digital download from CD Baby. CD Baby will feed it out to all other digital distribution platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and eMusic, but that usually takes two to three weeks. The CD includes some very nice artwork created by my good friend David Adams.

Thanks a lot and I hope you’ll check it out.
