about

Resonate.
Our evolving world…where technology strives for its humanity and humans further integrate… this merging of digital and physical realities provides generative and complex material.

These paths intersect in all new controls, securities, bondage and fetishized behaviors that drive our evolving realities.

Resonate explores the robot-like personality finally understanding its world on a more human level, with feeling, over time. Simultaneously, human unpredictability and drive is processed in a quantifiable way that catalogs the time, inspiration, and experience. Behaviors, desires and evolutions are made public consumables as social media, technologies and controls, expanding the boundaries of interface and reality….

Embraced in the proper manner, the human is more machine….and the machine is more human.

Track Name: CHARMED featuring Violette Syn
CHARMED
I can feel the temperature rising as I get closer to you
Your effect so blatantly physical even from across the room
Overwhelmed by the sense of the moment, can’t stop staring at you
This is where my circuits break down, my logic becomes unglued
I swear that…

I feel intoxicated – I’m charmed, bewitched and seduced, oh…

You pull me in, I attempt to engage, I can’t help feeling imbued
Your allure, so genuine, literal, take me I’m yours to abuse
The rush of blood, the touch of your skin, resistance is simply no use
I’m a slave to infatuation, desire beyond profuse

That I could fall so complete and totally, doesn’t seem so easy to me
You woke me up and turned me on, seeing things the others can’t see
Defenses down, my heart stripped bare, I come ready for you to use me
So much for the self control, you make me lose my mind completely

I feel intoxicated – I’m charmed, bewitched and seduced
I feel intoxicated – the world is spinning, it’s because of you

The beat pounds heavy and the bass throbs hard
I can’t help but marvel at all you are
Time slows down as the lights grow dim
I’ve been waiting for this moment so let’s begin
The beat pounds heavy and the bass throbs hard
I can’t help but marvel at all you are
Time slows down as the lights grow dim
I’ve been waiting for this moment so let’s begin

I feel intoxicated – Your effect so blatantly physical even from across the room
I feel intoxicated – This is where my circuits break down, my logic becomes unglued
I feel intoxicated – Your allure, so genuine, literal, take me I’m yours to abuse
I feel intoxicated – I’m a slave to infatuation, desire beyond profuse

No inhibitions, no excuse
No inhibitions, no excuse
Track Name: DREAMING featuring Violette Syn
DREAMING

I never saw this coming
A subtle shift has altered
Everything
In just the right way
In realigned perspectives
There’s a giant weight that’s lifted
Strips away
My residual hate

And with this additive inside
I’ve come to realize
The ways I’ve changed
I’ve evolved okay
I’ve finally reached the point where
I can take the thought to care
To appreciate
The effort you’ve made

I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming ‘cause this can’t be real
Can’t be real
More than I fantasize
Don’t dare hypothesize
This can’t be real
Can’t be real

I often seem surprised
‘Cause you know I’d never quite surmised
I might feel this way
I’d find my fate

This thing can’t be denied
The pieces fit and merge just right
It’s clearly a case
Where there’s no debate

I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming ‘cause this can’t be real

More than I fantasize, Don’t dare hypothesize
This can’t be real, Can’t be real

I must be on to something
Our time has come so easy
Everyday
It’s clearly insane
No demands or expectations
Our desires lead our relations
Celebrate
Choose to appreciate

I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming ‘cause this can’t be real
Can’t be real
I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming ‘cause this can’t be real
Can’t be real

I never saw you coming
You went ahead and altered
Everything
In such a fine way

I never saw this coming
A subtle shift has altered
Everything
In just the right way
I must be dreaming
I must be dreaming ‘cause this can’t be real
Can’t be real
Track Name: ROBOTICA featuring Violette Syn
ROBOTICA
You drive me hard
You push my buttons
You make my eyes glow red for you

You rig the wires
You turn my dials
You let the volts flow freely through

You bend my circuits
You light the meters
You make my sensors go completely wild

You move the sliders
You start my drivers
You tweak my program and enhance my code with style

Your fingers move out all over me
I feel you E-Lec-Tronic-ly
Shock me, turn me on, bring your power to bear
In-Struc-Tions take control of me
Re-wire, upgrade so fluidly
Plug In, link the system, I can feel you there

Robotica – Erotica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires
Robotica – Eroctica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires
All wrapped up in wires

You drive me hard
You push my buttons
You make my eyes glow red for you

You rig the wires
You turn my dials
You let the volts flow freely through

You bend my circuits
You light the meters
You make my sensors go completely wild

You move the sliders
You twist the ****
You tweak my program and enhance my code with style

Your fingers move out all over me
I feel you E-Lec-Tronic-ly
Shock me, turn me on, bring your power to bear
In-Struc-Tions take control of me
Re-wire, upgrade so fluidly
Plug In, link the system, I can feel you there

Robotica – Erotica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires
Robotica – Eroctica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires
All wrapped up in wires

There will come a time when my goal is obtained
When I free myself from this digital cage

Robotica – Eroctica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires
Robotica – Eroctica
Robotica – I’m all wrapped up in wires

You drive me hard, push my buttons
You rig the wires, turn my dials
You bend my circuits, light the meters
You move the sliders and drive me wild
You drive me hard, push my buttons
You rig the wires, turn my dials
You bend my circuits, light the meters
You move the sliders, drive me wild

Track Name: PROTOCOL
PROTOCOL
There is a process to follow
There is a way we can do things right
Just takes a little effort
Just takes some thought and foresight

We set the standard to follow
So we can choose the order of things to come
Time to make some smart decisions
Time to learn from all we’ve done

Diagram all the problems
Quantify the moving parts
Define the protocols
Make it work right from the start

Apply a little logic and reason
We can make a system that will function fine
We can build a thing of beauty
We can finally get the balance right

We’ve designed a string of enhancements
When implemented on the user side
Will simplify all our issues
Improve our bottom line

Diagram all the problems
Quantify the moving parts
Define the protocols
Make it work right from the start
