So who are The Facades? It’s a good question. Even though I play all four members of the group, and they all come from and live in my head, I still have a little trouble clearly defining them. Zyote, the serious executive producer with a heart of lead and a painted smile. Aces Wild, the androgynous rock star/party angel who borrows Bowie’s vision and runs amok with it. Glitchtech, the anxiety-driven machine made man with an ear to the subway walls and an eye on the truth. The Thin Man, the pure diamond of barely-repressed spite with a literal cult following. How do I play them all, and how do they all play me?
Genu is an art and a philosophy. It is at its very core a story, spanning lifetimes of love and tragedy. Reincarnation and renewal are its biggest themes. With subtle social and religious contexts that shed light on a personal transformation through the quest of finding the self.
I’m a 26-year-old Electronic Rock musician from the New River Valley in southwest Virginia. X-P38 started as a form of experimental techno mixed with a little bit of hip hop and a dash of rock. There are currently 40 self-produced albums and releases on my Bandcamp, and I’m still working almost every day to write music because I love to express my feelings through any kind of sound that I can make.
The song “Mr. Incredible” was created in my unique universe. I am my version of Mr. Incredible, and I am trying to impress the woman who is to be Elastigirl. Throughout the song, I am trying to make her my girl by showing off my superhero skills.
