Musim is the musical understakings of John Beauchamp. It was started in 2004 and continues presently. No two songs are alike with Musim. From style to melodies to keys, it all changes in some form or another. While one song might be ambient noise another might be an energetic dance track while another might be a guitar heavy industrial song. Musim's influences range anywhere from the classic late 70's early 80's industrial pioneers to jazz artists such as Miles Davis and Charlie Parker to punk bands like Social Distortion and Black Flag. From metal to country to dance, Musim wants to incorporate it all at some point. Stories is just like the title implies, a story. It has been described as 'old school industrial' many times. If you got into the industrial/goth scene because of bands off the record label 'A Different Drum' then this album is not for you. Another reviewer commented that Stories was 'incredibly dark' while another felt the story told was about 'cannibals' and 'an axe murderer'. And finally, another commenter said 'you make me want to go out and fight crime'. 'Stories isn't for everyone. If you want to listen to something to make you sleep better at night then this is not for you. Stories is about certain aspects of human nature that we don't like to talk about.'
