a taxis (without order or in-coordination):
Is my attempt to explain the struggle I feel having a form of genetic ataxia.
While performing and recording (which took place at the same time) I was very aware of the direction I wanted the music to take. I knew I wanted the album to be more than just a collection of songs.
While the lizard part of my brain obsessed over the range of emotions I feel any given day; the analytical part of my brain took over control of my hands.
The result is this album.
I also wanted the album's art work to reflect the theme of genetic ataxia. After much decision I went with old photos of my family.
