Casualties of Cool
May 2014

Casualties is a long standing project I’ve been working on that acts as a bridge between the 5 DTP albums and the massive Ziltoid 2 project, and as such…is a very peculiar and interesting work that requires a certain level of artistic freedom to accurately represent the vision. It is an album, a film, with 2 bonus albums worth of material. One of the bonus albums is the complete, unreleased ‘Ghost 2’ album. Casualties is a story that coincides with a film, the story arc follows a man marooned on a hostile planet, being lured there by a voice of a siren that ends up being the purveyor of a mortal game. The game is a metaphor for the relationship between men and women, selfishness and accountability, and ultimately…the relationship between an artist and himself. The story starts in darkness and ends in light. Casualties as a bridge, represents the process of getting through the dark to arrive at creative freedom that cannot exist without going into the dark and confronting the fear of oneself.
