About this project
Thank you for clicking on the radical album cover, thank you for checking out the music, and thank you for taking the time to read through to see if this is worth your investment. If you agree, love it and want to see me succeed or if you disagree, hate it and want to see me attempt and fail… BE A PART of something NEW & WYLDE and PLEASE MAKE A PLEDGE!
NOTICE: This music will move, stimulate and enliven; heat you up and keep you cool… Music is a channel for something much greater and our words are like a fire... they spread like Wylde.
What is an ego? In basic terms it is an identity. We are all much more then egos; more then the identity that has been thrust upon us of which we continue to believe in. In this physical realm, we all seem to identify and bind with our personal as well as collective egos as if without them we wouldn't exist. In fact, each and every one of us are just one of the enumerable expressions of the ever changing combinations of infinite possibilities that are, have been and can be.
The name Wylde is a pseudonym that was created in attempt to encompass the many facets of the human experience and it's egoic existence; as well as allow for a disassociation from my self in order to explore and discover more about the nature of all forms of life, existence and the immensity of the universe. The music comes through a channel of a series of seemingly separate entities that manifest out of the Wylde experience. I create images and descriptions to aid understanding. You can read about two of them below. There will be more as the project evolves.
The violet masked man has been named the CoCreator. He is a representation of the right hemisphere of the human brain. He is powerful and energetic. His construction and destruction is spontaneous and is continually shifting and altering dimensional systems, structures, and subsequent realities. His creativity is fluid, has no bounds, and can sometimes be abstract, misunderstood and very often paradoxical. He is constantly manifesting abundance and harmony into existence. Synchronicity is a concept common to his process. There is no true distinction between good and evil; only balance. He is very playful and loves to design systems and watch them play through no matter the conclusions. Very easily swayed by reactive responses and spontaneous whims of unbridled imagination.
Below you will see the Warrior of Light. He is a representation of the left hemisphere of the human brain. He is purely logical and believes in truth. He has access to the entirety of all knowledge and is eternal. He knows that love is the true power behind all the universe. He has no personal existence; his sole purpose is to maintain that the positive always defeats the negative. That being deemed destructive or negative he converts to positivity. If it is truly evil, with no purpose to change, it will simply be dissolved into energy and dispersed. He uses raw information and pure energy to dissolve and reconstruct what is logically destructive. He travels at the speed of thought and is physically untouchable because he exists at a state of being beyond form. He will manifest into physical perception in order to perpetuate the belief in himself in order to encourage other beings to spread love and become and remain positive. Ultimately, he has no identity other then what is projected onto him by others.
I will be adding more images as I move forward. There are other aspects of which I will be illustrating further as I continue on this journey of exploration and discovery.
Why make music?
The music already exists; I am simply discovering it and being a channel for a source much greater then I. Some of it seems to come directly from my life experiences whilst some of it seems to come from beyond myself. It feels amazing and allows me to express what is culminating inside and from beyond. Sometimes, I feel as if I don't play or sing I will burst or melt. There is no other time I feel more whole then when I am making music. I hope to spread love and understanding and some how influence positivity.
(Even if you don't pledge... Heed these words...)
I see injustice… light, not blood, needs to be shed
You are an expression of the all knowing awareness, true being, pure consciousness... the infinite possibilities of all that is, was and can be. As you read this, there are forces at work attempting to stop you from knowing and believing that. They want to turn your reality into a cold, dark, dead, uncreative, feeding ground. The wheels have been turning for a very long time. It is now, because of the open availability of information technology, coming to the fore front of our awareness. Tear through the illusion. Continue down the rabbit hole and see for yourself.
I see too many people wandering through their lives and daily routines with no apparent awareness or true appreciation for the beautiful world they experience. People with seemingly no knowledge or understanding of why or how it is they even exist; and never question it. They walk around in the illusion of a virtual hypnosis of learned fear, obedience, preconditioned responses, rigid belief systems, and manipulated behavioral patterns. It saddens me, and when I think about the fact that others have actually manufactured these mind prisons deliberately, it infuriates me.
We need to wake up and break free. We need to drag the lies out into the light and expose them like the cold hearted resource mongering reptiles they are. We need to topple the institutions that conform and dumb the people. We need to stop waiting in lines just to be force fed lies. We need to stop being over worked slaves too tired to fight back. We need to unify and stop believing that conformity is what's best and take back our control and inalienable rights!
Our entire life experience is full of beauty, happiness, love, joy, bliss, creativity, true knowledge and unity... Not war, anger, apathy, disease, depression and poverty. The illusion is like a maze of memes that preoccupies our minds so that we forget who we really are. Life experience is not about enduring through suffering to make it to some sort of end goal. Abundance of all things is right here for you NOW!
By sheer numbers, "we the people" over power the very few who maintain this illusion. Why do they still have the control? Technology is kindred to our souls desires. However, in the hands of the non-empathetic it is a weapon. They use many techniques to control the masses by the very belief systems we live by; It is a feedback loop: beliefs create a perceptual experience which affirms the beliefs which strengthen the perceptual experience etc etc... If you control the beliefs you control the mind. Then you control the feedback loop therefor you control the personal and conjoined realities of all of humanity who continue to feed into it. They don't need physical force to make us do what they want. They are already doing it! Do you see?
The time is now. I don't want chaos. I want freedom and unity. I simply want to shed a white hot light on the truth, shatter the illusion of lies, and abolish the festering darkness of ignorance. I want us to bring back the power of our humanity and save this beautiful world from it's desecrators. They want us to destroy each other and the earth by dividing us into opposing belief systems... and it's happening right now... Why do people fight one another? Because they disagree about their beliefs; religion, racial, social, political. The list goes on. When the truth is we are all one and from the one source. Wake up! Help stop the madness! Truth and love will set us all free. Together we can overcome and create a world and existence of pure positivity beyond our wildest desires!
Free yourself with love and truth!
The first purpose of the funding…
I have worked hard and practiced, failed and learned, succeeded and dripped sweat… and now is the time.
I am producing and releasing the album “The Power of the Tongue." as well as developing all original artwork, design work, and all other facets of promoting a new artist and album. The plan is to release the album by June 9th of this coming year; and if things go smoothly and quickly there will be an early release.
The second purpose for the funding…
All of my recording and mixing is done on an Asus laptop with a busted mic jack and output to a stereo amp with really loud speakers and/or a pair of studio headphones. The input is from a digital hand recorder suspended in a milk crate with sound proof material shoved in it. Not exactly a professional rig by any standards.
My current recording quality just simply is not good enough. Keep that in mind while you listen to the recorded samples. I will not have the album made until I can record at the professional quality that better studio equipment can produce.
The music is written, created, and essentially ready to be recorded; although it is always continually evolving. I have decided, that instead of paying somebody for the recording, mastering and production, I will build my own studio and do it all myself. It is a big undertaking, but that way it will continue to feed my passion for music as well as give me the ability to help others create. So, not only will the studio be used for my personal recording, I will use it to connect with other artists and create other projects in the future.
On a side note, if I happen to go over the goal or if there is extra funding, it will be put towards equipment for creating a music video for the launch of the album.
The third purpose for the funding…
YOU GET AWESOME PROMO STUFF!
They will consist of personal emails, phone calls or hand written letters… Pre-release you can get a set of Wylde ring tones… You can get one or both of the Wylde glow-in-the-dark bracelets (white and purple), one or both of the Wylde stickers (large and small), one or two kick ass Wylde t-shirts, a digital version of the Wylde album, and of course a hard copy of the Wylde album at the release date or at an early release date if all signs point to yes...
Check out the website (www.SpreadLikeWylde.com). It will be continually updated with music, videos, artwork and other downloadable extras. Once the goal is reached it will provide Wylde promo items and the album itself.
Please pledge whatever is in your heart… or your couch cushions.
No pledge will go unnoticed.
I am totally lit up about this whole Kickstarter concept. What a great way for creative people to grow and continue to do what it is we love to do so well. I believe it is what can make this whole vision into a reality. YOU are the most important part of this! With your love, support and pledges this can happen!
The Power of the Tongue
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue. Those who love it will eat its fruits” - Proverbs 18:21
This is an album full of energy, rhythm and harmony, engaging melodies and tantalizing musical elements… Lyrics from a wildly animalistic ego, whilst lifting off into flight towards realms of love and enlightenment, as well as a loss of control through aggressive intellect with tinges of insanity... A journey towards an ever expanding consciousness and true understanding through the discoveries of the questions and answers of the universe... All wrapped around one another like an erotic tantric yoga session.
We are all interconnected and our lives intertwined
Music is universal. It is inherent within and flows from something much greater. It is everywhere if we tune in to it. It can take shape, take over or catalyst change. It can create and it can destroy.
Music is a language in itself. It is deeply integrated within all our many languages and simply cannot be separated. Things like rhythm, harmony, intonation, etc. are used and can be understood across all forms of communication even when we don’t speak the same language.
Language shapes our thoughts which in turn affect the way we function, behave, interact and otherwise understand the world around us. Communication is how we live our social lives. We use our languages to communicate ideas and influence others; and the words we choose to speak and how we choose to speak are integral to the quality of our social lives and relationships.
Music is powerful. Chanting, singing, playing instruments and dancing are all ancient practices still used to energize, heal, entertain, influence and teach. They affect us on multiple levels through vibrational frequencies and perceptual often visceral experiences. From the very core of our being they affect the particles, atoms, molecules, cells and tissues that form us. They alter the space/time, energy fields, and matter that surrounds and constitutes us.
Energy flows to, from and through all things. It is and contains all the varying data points and fluctuations of the unlimited information needed for the infinite perceptions and dimensions of existence. It comes from the source with no name. The term God is often used to allow for us to be able to quantify our understanding of the all encompassing concept that is existence. Although, it's immensity is beyond words and comprehension.
Subsequently, for us, changes will occur in the mind state, physical body and spiritual essence, that reflect the fluctuations of energy. The flow can be increased or decreased. Sickness and death come from a stagnant or absent flow as do states of being such poverty and depression. On the flip side of the coin, high flowing energy leads to health and positive aspects such as abundance and happiness.
To affect one’s energy levels is to ultimately raise or lower one’s level of consciousness, awareness and state of being. This spontaneously has a direct influence on the collective consciousness, awareness and state of being as whole. That would imply ones reality as well as the combined reality of all. In a sense, the quality of existence for one and all.
Energy manifests in many forms physical and non physical. Similar to the concept of magnetism, forms can be positive or negative and will attract similar and
repel opposing. Some forms can seem raw and seemingly uncontrollable and some organized and focused. Energy fluctuations and fields can be manipulated, perceived and felt. Feelings
correlate to emotional states. Emotional states are directly related to the vibrational frequencies of an individuals state of being.
Music has been called the language of emotions. Strong feelings or emotions behind music, spoken, sung or chanted words will alter, both the creators and audiences, energy fields and perceptions which in turn will alter reality itself. Sound takes shape when there is intention and function.
Positive emotions like love, excitement, and passion are strong and will manifest ones predominant thoughts and desires into existence very quickly. Negative emotions cannot create only stagnate and destroy. Negative things are inherently low energy and therefor positive is always stronger then negative.
Love will raise your vibrational state like nothing else... Energy manifests into all it's forms from the infinite varying frequencies, sequences and wave forms of information that are, have been and can be. The higher the vibrational state the better and easier the manifestation. Imagine being underwater able to move in all directions, but the water being information that is able to be manipulated simply by intending it to be. Thoughts create powerful vibrations containing information. We are constantly emanating information energy affecting everything else. Sound is audible vibrational information. The heart and the mind need to work together. That is why music is such a powerful catalyst.
To have all you desire, focus on love and what is positive to raise your vibrational state, follow your excitement in the moment and affinity as a sense of intuition, and intended to manifest with function. Everything will fall in to place as if by serendipity or synchronicity. Create from the heart and speak out of truth. It will change your life and the universe as we know it.
That is the power of the tongue…

Risks and challenges
The only real risk is if the funding doesn't happen. That would mean nobody really likes my music, thinks I'm a fool, or I didn't present it well enough. If that becomes the scenario... I'd come back stronger and smarter the next time.
I am fully confident in this community and the music...
As far as challenges...
I have attempted to make the goal the bare minimum required dollar amount to create this album and provide all the awesome promo stuff. If we go over goal everything will go much smoother and it will create much more mass, acceleration and stability behind the movement of the project. So, hitting the goal will work 100%... But, WE CAN DO BETTER! it comes down to YOU!
Making sure that I stay on budget is the main challenge. $1,250 for the production of the albums. When all the albums are sold and given to everyone there will be more produced. $1,250 for promo items and shipping, $5,000 for the studio equipment; and an extra bit to pay these wonderful people at Kickstarter for coming up with this great concept that allows me to even do this. Also, if I go over the goal I will be buying equipment, like an HD camera rig, for creating music videos.
The second challenge is to get the studio built quick enough to allow ample recording and mixing time. That is crucial for the quality and success of this album and the future of the music. That is the primary reason why I chose six months away for the release date. I am very optimistic that the album will be released earlier. Everything is already in the process.
I embrace all challenges!
The ultimate challenge... We must overcome our aggressors...
How do we fight an enemy we cannot find?
We will never win against the mongers using violence or anger...
That only empowers them...
We must do everything in our influence to rise our vibrational state...
Realize your true nature and create positive energy...
Follow your affinity... Sing... Dance... Love...
Life is an incredible immense perpetual song and dance and we are all a part.
PLEASE PLEDGE and BE PART of something RAW, WYLDE and BRAND NEW!
You’re support is GREATLY APPRECIATED and will not go unnoticed.
