The inspiration started more than 20 years ago when I would listen to Jesus Christ Superstar endlessly. Then came the 80's, and the synthesizer, Heaven 17, Human League, Alphaville, Pet Shop Boys, Eurythmics,and then... Strange Angels. Your classic 'one man band' in the vein of The The, Nine Inch Nails, & Lightning Seeds.
I'm drawn to Science Fiction with a decidedly spiritual side-Blade Runner, Dune, J.G Ballard, Doria Russles 'The Sparrow'-I wanted the music to be cinematic, supernatural, and futuristic, dealing with alienation and, ultimately, hope.
