In the Neat Handwriting of the Illiterate
The Selfsame is the brainchild of Pete Moses, former singer of of the luminary Colorado post rock band The Fifth Utility. Reborn in Brooklyn, Moses' The Selfsame is a solo project on a most unusually epic scale. The music draws it's strength from the tension between it's stark organic elements (guitar, piano, & voice) & it's hyperbolical, frenetic synthetic, computer generated drum, & bass parts. On stage as well as on the soon-to-be-released debut album 'in the neat handwriting of the illiterate', all of the madness, the entire wall of crumbling sound, emanates from just one man & his toys... all while a mesmerizing onslaught of stroboscopic, synchronized light & images are painted across the canvas.
