I began constructing this album in 2012 with nothing more than a desire to express sounds and textures that I found to be interesting and unusual. Over the following few years leading to the present time, numerous events (some particularly bizarre, and others even supernatural) happened in my personal life that would shape the theme of the album into something more conceptual. Nowhere House is ultimately, my attempt to make a tasty stew out of these events and resulting cognitive processes (some related, some unrelated), and to use them as best therapeutically as I am able. The DSM-V is probably more of an influence on this album than anything else.
This project is something that has been extremely liberating, as I have no others to answer to during the process of writing. At the same time, it’s been extremely scary, as I do this alone, and often found myself investigating and writing about concepts that I didn’t intend to initially explore, at least not to some of the depths that I did, anyway . Whether they are of a personal nature or vicarious musings, or both, the result for me has been very powerful in many, many ways. Please press play, and judge accordingly. - n.j.w.
