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'. http://koshrecords.net/anecdata/
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. http://koshrecords.net/dharmapolice/
Planet Claire is instrumental electronic noodlings and other bits and bobs. Minus my voice. http://koshrecords.net/planetclaire/
