Influences: Imperative Reaction, Covenant, Suicide Commando, Hocico, Mylene Farmer, the Atmospheric Breaks station on di.fm
I'm a solo artist from Chicago-ish with...several projects, now. I love sounds inspired by dark underground genres like industrial, ebm, darkwave, and dark electro, but I'm attracted to synths and dance music in general.
My three main projects are Imperfect Trust, Perfect Love, and the pseudonym Lucas Coronado. I've only released anything as Imperfect Trust so far and people seem to like it, so that's pretty rad.
Lately I've been listening to more instrumental forms of electronic music. I think I will go that route this year. ETA: FAILED lol. Once a lyricist, always a lyricist I guess.
2019 - no win
2020 - no win but more songs
2021 - 9
Pronouns: ze/hir/hirs or she/her/hers. Let's just roll with that this year. I won't get mad if you use something else.
A bit of help since the genderqueer ones are older and sort of lost:
"Hir" sounds like "here."

Just uploaded the final version of "All Hallows Eve". Added more punch, artwork and proper tags. If you'd like to update your library... feel free to download once again. You may also like the album I'm mixing right now. Not that much industrial, but dark hard trance. It will be on Bandcamp end of March. For free!
Re: Dragonfae song: I'm glad to hear the prompt is helping with an album! That's super-exciting. I hope you'll put in a placeholder before the site closes to new songs, so you can share the demo when you do get one.
Thanks for breaking my zongs! I consider it a great compliment that I could make you laugh, make you scared, and help you learn something new 😀
Ha - I thought that would be what it meant!
Thanks! Seems like the VST isn't available anymore. So I guess its a chorus with a very fast modulation frequency?
Ahh, thanks. I'll have to check out charsiesis at some point. 😀
Thanks for listening again! Mixing with headphones and with monitors is a difference. Maybe I need some days off to look at it once again.
Thank you for your kind comment on my song 😀
Thanks for the listen and the comment! I spent a while on the lyrics for this one, sometimes writing about something specific is hard to get right and avoid cliches but I’m pretty pleased with it. Would love to hear what you come up with if you decide to give it a go... everyone needs at least one space song 😜
Yeah it's not a dissimilar sound identity, it could even be a good replacement hahahaha, thanks, I was happy to get the idea, it happens sometimes in japanese metal but it's not soooo common even there
Hello thanks for your comment on Ashes, it was not a harpsichord but either a samples koto or shamisen depending on where it is on the song
Hey, I just uploaded a new version of "All Hallow's Eve". Can you please check if the mix / master is better now? Thanks a lot!
P.S. I've matched the loudness to my upcomming album.The industrial and power noise stuff from my record collection is way louder.
Thank you for the comment!
Thanks for the comment on "Monolithic Halls"! The funny thing about the word painting challenge is that I finished writing the music and the lyrics last Sunday and I already knew then that I would do the echo thing there, then come Monday I go to record the vocals and notice that the challenge has appeared. It's like they read my mind. 😁
Thanks for your comment on SHEEP!
That lead is a Moog Matriarch, it has four oscillators that can be set to Triangle, Sawtooth, Square, or Pulse. I've got one of each in that order, and they're sync'd serially.
I'll email it over tomorrow. The file's on my laptop (currently on phone). 😀
If you want to set Invocazione to music, be my guest. 😁
ZAP! was a lot of fun, yes. It was an easy song for me, because I'm fundamentally silly. More serious stuff is where I struggle.
Tears, yes, definitely goth-ish. It being about a leaky roof was the intention, but that only came through in a couple lines. "The water drips into the pan" and "the roof now caves in". Thank you for the compliment on the lyrics! They actually took way longer than I was expecting. 😀
Thought Valley is one of my favourites for sure. My vocals sound so awesome *because* @ianuarius set them to some stellar music. On their own, they don't sound anywhere near as good. Definitely enjoyed those vocals though. Had a lot of fun. 😁
Thanks for the comments, and glad you enjoyed so many of my tracks! Let me know how setting music to Invocazione goes. My email should be on my profile. 😀
Thanks for your comment on "All Hallow's Eve"! I'll redo mix and master when my ears are ready. Producing this punchy kind of techno with headphones is really exhausting. I'll text you when the final version is ready. Looking forward to your industrial noise!
Thanks for your comment on Allies Fall Easiest. Yeah, the poison of Twitter didn't really hit me till I read users bashing transwomen for toxic behaviour from before transition. I was like, can they not imagine that doubling-down into masculinity would be like an autonomic survival mechanism, when raised/living in a hyper-traditionalist environment?
Thank you so much for the comment on West Wind. Yeah, I wish I could have gotten some vocals to work for it. But, I guess that's something I can work on post-FAWM.
See You In The Shadows…
Ha! Glad you enjoyed it! Monkey was a lot of fun. 😁
oh wow, thank you for your comments on my song "Red Cloak"i'm really moved that it had an effect, i'm really more of an actor at heart so if something moves people that makes me feel good. "Chilling" makes sense this is definitely a song about a 'survivor' thanks for picking up on that.
Hey, not a problem at all.
That sounds good to me, I can limit anything I do to here. Would very fun to make a horrible mess of.
(also sorry if patronising, I never know if I'm being helpful or a fucking bore... I'll shurrup 😉 ) X
Re: workflow - depending on your setup (I have a lotta VSTs, a lotta synths), having just a few that you really become intimate with (as opposed to getting a new synth every other month... *cough* like I'd ever do that...) is a REALLY good route to finding that defining sound, too. Too much choice is a cast-iron fuckbag.
Loving your stuff, hope you're enjoying this FAWM, really looking forward to hearing more <3
Thanks for your comment on the grail.
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song. Happy FAWM!
Welcome to FAWM! Hope it's a good one for ya!
Hahhh, thank you, - the right amount of coffee works wonders for me 😀
Yes! Make sure to post a link of your first-fruits in the thread. Just noticed your influences include Suicide Commando and Hocico! I definitely want to hear what you come up with! 😁
Hello! Happy FAWM2021!
- I am honored you'd "follow" me
- I always wonder "why", hahhh, but not asking; I work in the vaccum of my mind and presume no listeners 😀
I try to keep track, not many, - feel free to freely comment. The folks that work with me know that's not just lip service. Once I know a person, "sounds good, like it" then, takes on more meaning; but, that takes time.
Hey, welcome back! Looking forward to your FAWMtronica contributions!
