loaf eye is an album i’ve been working on for the past 2 years since finishing the debut tomemitsu album, m_o_d_e_s in 2013. the overarching theme for most of the songs on loaf eye deals with self exploration. looking inwards and becoming at ease with who i am as a musician and human, rather than the themes of love and loss emphasized on m_o_d_e_s.

the soundtrack to a seldom-seen 1974 art film by mort hellig - featuring a total cast of 3, playing "creation," "humanity," and "destruction," respectively - israeli composer aminadav aloni's peculiar, minimal electronic music cues come from a more compositional bent than much of the era's synthetic dabblings. over the course of 8 song-length segments of hand-played melodic refrain, a certain mood is established of laissez-faire, devil-may-care-ish-ness that is, frankly, quite welcome - segments bordering on pure drone / timbral exploration suddenly give way to more melodic & thematic events that belie the music's function.
