Myriads Rise EP (2019) captures a variety of harmonic and melodic textures including symmetrical scales, altered modes, and color writing, alongside hard-hitting sound design and ear candy hooks. A mixture of dense orchestrations, technical playing, and solid songwriting make for an exciting listen with new elements emerging each repeat.

SOZO EP (2015) is a Rock-Electronic collaboration of epic proportions between Nathan and six of his previous classmates from the Berklee College of Music. During the entirety of the project, all the participants were spread across the Americas, including Texas, California, Tennessee, New York, and Venezuela. This made for a very interesting writing, production, and filming process. Nathan's technical bass parts and advanced musical concepts are prevalent throughout the seamlessly-flowing concept EP, and are adorned with the talented voices of the full, synergetic lineup of musicians.

They Came From The Sky
“They Came From the Sky” is an aural montage of Nathan's early experiments as an organic electronic artist. As new genres of computer-based music were being born, Nathan searched for ways to recreate their adrenalizing textures without the use of computers. He felt that the “DJ performance” left much to be desired, and the answer to what was missing was clear… a live, conveying performance by a group of skilled, interactive musicians.
Nathan studied electronic production, and gained understanding of how the textures were being being created electronically. He then replicated the processes through effects pedals. Utilizing compression, synth, octave, distortion, modulation, and heavy eq-ing effects pedals, he had a pedalboard to be reckoned with. All that was left was a way to modulate the tones in real time. In his search, Nathan stumbled upon a device called the “Hot Hand,” which brought everything to life.
