Fantasy writers, conspiracy theories, strange stories and personalities, have all acted as his source of inspiration and the background to his instrumental music which moves between huge symphonic episodes, fast paced sequencer driven soundscapes and dark ambience. His music has recently become very popular and as a consequence, also heavily pirated.
