The incarnation of FT13 had started back in 1998. I aquired some programs and started up a new hobby. I had no idea what i was doing, but being i had guitar, keyboard and drum playing background, i figured it was time to learn how to start recording into a PC instead of a 4-track, as i knew this would be \'the way of the future\', so to speak. I busted out a demo in 1999 containing 5 songs that were really basic. Lots of samples and shit. I had handed it to a friend of mine who enjoyed it and then jumped aboard and moved in with me to work on what would later become eLABoRATe, which was released in 2000 on New Leaf Records, a local record label in New Jersey (which no longer exists, thank god!) After a horrible 3 year contract with New Leaf Records, i was free from my contract and i was able to do whatever i wanted. I moved to Seattle in August of 2002 and started work on what would become The Great Disaster, which was released in 2008. Upon completion of The Great Disaster, i left Seattle for a more quiet location in Omaha, NE, which is where i started work on the as yet unnamed 3rd album. In between those times, i was heavily involved in Unter Null as well as Psyclon 9 as their keyboardist. Now that i am back in Seattle, i plan on continuing work and finishing up the 3rd album.
