My name is Steven. Hopeful Machines is my audio sandbox. It exists for developing ideas, learning production techniques, and my own amusement. Many of the albums are free, take them. If you would like to support the cause, please visit the website and make a donation. After you're done poking around here, please check out my other project, Ego Likeness. It's dark, it's got guitar, and a seriously hot chick singer.
