About

Formerly working under the moniker of Mount Moon, Jazz Casual is the musical outlet of one, Wesley Bryon. Tetragammaton is an album that he has been "writing" over the course of the past year. It chronicles interstellar stories of: Romance!, Spiritual Ascension...and of course the inevitable fall. Its tales are told through old woeful wails simmered slow over a stew of sampled, resampled, chopped, screwed, digitized and analogized robotic nonsense; Given the right amount of chutzpa, some are said to say that it sounds like angels singing into a well of tears. 

So help me make this into a real deal type of thing that you can hold in your hands and see on a stage! All of the funds raised will go into studio time to record the 9 track album: Tetragammaton in analog format and then put it out cassette tapes with art and design by yours truly. And of course this archaic sound format also comes equipped with a 21st century digital download that you can put on your ipod and jog to on foggy mornings or blast at the beach over beers shared with friends!

But that is not all...funds wills also be printing Jazz Casual T-Shirts, Stickers and Posters which all them lucky donators can claim as their own! And a short east coast tour down south to bring all these fun things straight to lovely you! So what are you waiting for? Help me make this magic happen and you can be a part of it too!

You can hear home-recorded versions of all the tracks right here:

Risks and challenges

Recording can take longer than expected and can be a real drag. Sometimes you order things to be printed and they don't arrive on time or at all. When you are down on the luck, sometimes synthesizers break unexpectedly. Sometimes the stars won't align and you keep on messing up and more often than not, tour costs a lot more than one originally plans. But I am confident in my album and live set and am more than ready to reveal the grace, beauty and power that it has to the whole wide world.
