“I think about the question “Are you working with me, or against me?” a lot. Usually in regards to my relationships or most often my past self, but this time it was in the context of my instrument. There are sections of the instrument that are designed to work together, but there are points in that partnership where the two sides turn on each other and form chaos. For this album I spent a lot of time dealing with this chaos. Shaping it, fighting it, trying to reason with it. All the while asking “Are you working with me, or against me?” Eventually, by force and at times by accident, I was able to negotiate some beauty out of the chaos. I tethered it to simple melodies and rhythms I connected with, and that brought balance. I got my answer. “ – Kyle Swisher / DARK SPARKLER 


“We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep… They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance… Please understand, they are safe as long as they are not discovered — that is their primary method of survival; keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated… They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more, people are becoming poor. We are their cattle; we are being bred for slavery.” ~John Carpenter (They Live)
