edit (10/31): due to an overwhelming response from my supporters, we have exceeded bandcamp's monthly bandwidth cap. to circumvent this and keep the momentum alive, i've uploaded the album to my mediafire account.

singularity is a soulful blend of hip-hop and jazz, and the distillation of the transformativeness in my recent life.
the style of the album is inevitably a synthesis of all my big inspirations: nujabes, yngwie malmsteen, motoi sakuraba, yoko kanno, and the list goes on. for those unfamiliar, the album carries some serious overtones of both jazz and hip-hop (big nod to nujabes), though i've injected much of my own flavor into the mix. there is a touch of electronica. and the gratuitous guitar solo.
as far as donations go, i am accepting them via paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org. if you have the heart, and more importantly the means to do so, you have my sincerest thanks. however, another (if not the most significant) way you can pay me back is by simply spreading the word! if you use facebook, invite all your friends to the event in the link below! the album is 100% free, so pick a copy up for yourself, your mother, and your significant other.
much love and God bless,
