In the 2 years I decided to take to writing, recording & producing my debut album MindsEye, I had recorded so much material that I could have released a double album for a debut album. In the end, I decided against the idea and scaled it back to a 44 minute record, but I still had all this music to share and to be heard. With that said, I decided to place the remaining album tracks on their own ep's, the first of them being PRISM, which is part of a new (yet to be titled) series of ep's that I'll be releasing this year one-by-one through my label Room 106 Productions, all of which you will find online, mainly, from my homepage.
The brief description of the PRISM E.P is thus, there are 6 tracks in total, the 1st track is the SUITE track, technically the 'single', which is then followed by all 5 parts of the Suite in their individual forms from Parts 1 to 5. The reason for the SUITE is because the tracks follow similar melodic patterns, but are not the same track each time, they are ever evolving pieces to their puzzle, alternating tempos and variations on their own structure, built around a basic pattern that takes you on a journey through sight & sound.
The first three parts of the Suite have their own videos on YouTube, with parts one and two being computer graphic videos, while the third (3D) is a live recorded performance of the main guitar solo as the main track is playing. Parts four and five however do not have their own videos and, at this time, may not, but who knows, maybe soon.

About the PRISMSUITE; The entire is built around one melodic pattern, starting with PR1SM from 2009. Now being in 2014, I concluded the Suite with part five, PRISM 5IGHT, as the final evolution of the Suite from it's core beginning. Each part follows the same melodic structure, but varies chronologically as the Suite progresses, with certain additions to each part to give them their own unique flavour, be it a sample or the choice in guitar sound used, not one part is the same all the way through.
In terms of 'concept', ever since the 'Supernova' EP from 2011 I've taken to writing more cosmic styled music, as astronomy is a passion of mine and has so much to offer in terms of inspirational content, from simple stargazing to the complexity of our universal existence. PRISM is more a focus on the sights of space, the stars and the colours that give us expression.
