Description:
Every January, a group of philosophers met in a cave somewhere in Colorado. They got together for three days to think and philosophize about life and the universe around them. However, the 1887 meeting became a fateful one. The three day event became a week long discussion about life beyond this world. During this time, they disregarded the essentials of life, such as eating and sleeping. Therefore, all of whom were attending this event suffocated themselves to death in their own philosophy. This unnamed cave became their tomb.


Tracklist:

01. Lecture Tomb


Lecture Tomb was composed on two separate occasions: September 30 & November 4, 2015.

All sounds are original. No software synths and no audio from third parties were used in this recording.

Release Date: August 24, 2015

Label: Happy Puppy Records

Description:
“We’re very pleased to release a new artist to the puppy pound – much,! (yes, that’s with a comma). much, is a side project by Zach Bridier. Instead of exploring in experimental IDM-ish electronic music in Captive Portal, Zach goes in singer/songwriter mode. We like to call it a “nice blend of electronica, hip hoppy samples, acoustic instruments and vocoders, etc.” That’s probably the best way to describe the music of much,.” – Happy Puppy Records

01. Watching A Nation Die

02. Scavange

03. Usless Confusion

 

All songs written, performed, and mixed by Zach Bridier between 2012-2015
