Hi. My name is Dan, I'm from Auckland, and I write and record songs under the names Anecdata / Dharma Police / Planet Claire.

This year I'll be doing a bit more experimentation. The last couple of years have been very 'rock', so this time around I've created a program which will set me instrument parameters which I'll use as restrictions to force something different out.

I've learned how to use a different DAW, set up my desk up differently, bought new gear - including a new guitar - and will have to work around the fact there's a baby in the house.

Let's see what happens.

Anecdata is for rock-inspired stuff. There were two albums in 2017 - 'But Her Emails...' and 'You Do Not Do', and one in 2018 - 'Short Sharp Shocks'.

Dharma Police is retro-inspired synthpop, with lyrical themes often heavily leaning on the best TV show of all time, Lost... it began in FAWM 2011 when I wrote a bunch of Lost-inspired tunes, and there you go.

Planet Claire is instrumental electronic noodlings and other bits and bobs. Minus my voice.

Downloads etc at my website,

    Read your comment to my local city headlines. The headlines I picked are from the local 'alternative' weekly, tabloid format newspaper. It leans pretty hard to the left - but it has the NYT crossword in the back and that's where I head first. The front page is always a nice piece of art with a headline, and I noticed I could make songs out of each of them, if I worked at it a little bit. Not much happens in Colorado Springs except 300 days of sunshine each year and we get to look at Pikes Peak. Every, Day. It's pretty awesome, honestly, coming from the US Midwest where it's gray skies all winter.

    Hey there! I'm looking forward to checking out the Short Sharp Shocks album (to add to all the Radio Over Moscow albums I already own from Bandcamp), and to whatever new stuff you come up with this February!
