This is the soundtrack to a dream.

There’s a story. A beginning, middle, and end. Heroines. Villains. Bridges. Chases. Evil twins. Children. Drugs. Showdowns. And hamburgers.

But nobody really likes hearing other people explain their dreams. So I made this instead.

"The Incident at Fallthrough Bridge" is a love-letter to my creative influences. It's an homage to red-threaded concept albums from bands like Pink Floyd, Neutral Milk Hotel and Okkervil River. It's a nod to the otherworldly, genre-bending storytelling from creators like Stephen King and Christopher Nolan. And it’s a hug on the fearless creativity of noise artists like John Zorn and Boredoms.

It started on my couch in Shanghai, China in 2010. I was just learning how to create and record my own music. Over the last several years I tinkered with it, crafting every song and performing just about every note myself. It wasn’t until I moved to Tokyo (where I live now) that it clicked in and I finally finished it. I’ve held on to it for too long. I want to share it with you.

Recommended if you like dreamy wordless acoustic folk, uncomfortable beats, epic instrumental post-rock, speedy pop punk, experimental noise, screamy hardcore, children’s choruses and untidy resolutions.

Here's one track, called "Quiktime":

“The Incident at Fallthrough Bridge” is proof to myself that you should follow your dreams. Even the bad ones.

Risks and challenges

I'm hoping to raise enough money to cover the costs of making a vinyl LP. It'll be limited-edition, 200 copies. I've never pressed vinyl before! But it has been a dream of mine to make my own record like this. I'm hoping there are enough of you out there who are into this to help me make it happen.
