Theta Naught is a purely instrumental, improvisational group of friends/musicians that formed in Salt Lake City, Utah near the end of 2002. Theta Naught is comprised of Ryan (bass, guitar), Jared (keys), Peter (cello), Darren (drums), and Greg (lap-slide). They have played around with different sounds, structures, amplification methods, mathematical equations, computer processors, and such, and finally recognized that their best music and sounds would generate at the time of origination. All five members of Theta Naught have been or currently are pursuing their goals of higher education at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Darren graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering; Ryan completed a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering; Peter is continuing with a Bachelor of Arts in Romantic Languages; Jared is pursuing a double bacheloreate in Political Science and Economics. They all find themselves easily entertained with math jokes, deep conversations regarding the fourth dimension, quoting all genres of movies, and tying knots. They all enjoy continuing their education, are international travelers, and speak several foreign languages fluently. The album ABACUS is the second full-length release by Theta Naught on Eden's Watchtower Records. It is a slight change from Somthing Scientific, being more musically advanced while dealing with variable time signatures and key changes based on mathematics.
