  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    After putting eight 2-disc sets up for sale on 3/14, seven of them sold out within 12 hours, the last one sold after 6. So for 4/20, I'm putting up eight times that amount up for sale. I'm selling 64 sets of The Ilusen's Fallacy up for sale for 4/20, a date that bears all kinds of significance.

    Each disk was handmade by myself, and each set comes with both discs in a jewel case.

    If you have any special requests for your purchase, feel free to leave them in a message.

  • Limited Cassette Tapes
    Cassette + Digital Album


    For 4/04, I've made a batch of limited press cassette tapes of The Ilusen's Fallacy! Every tape contains the entire 88.88 minutes of the album. Each cassette comes pressed on a TDK D90 Type I tape from 1982, although come in many different styles. These can be played in boomboxes, cassette decks, or car tape players!

    Although cassette tapes are undeniably outdated, the novelty of creating cassette tapes by myself filled me with almost as much joy as I had releasing the album. I was genuinely so happy. Not only does it fill my heart with so much passion, but I've also grown to love the warmth and noise that comes with cassette tapes.

    Every purchase not only comes with the feeling of a vintage, physical tape, but a digital download of the best quality version of the album. Each purchase gives you the choice of FOUR different styles of tapes, pictured above as "Miami", "Seattle", "Los Angeles", and "Chicago", and as there are only 8 tapes in total, there are only 2 of each style. The price is $16 to fund better and more types of merchandise, such as clothing and records, and to go towards the music!

V = ⁴⁄₃ πRot³ is talking about numerology, mathematics, and the Pythagorean cult that discussed the foundation of mathematics that we live and breathe today, though not completely and directly related.

It was Saint Augustine that said "Numbers are the universal language given to us by the deity as confirmation of the truth".

This song is the most difficult to perform on each instrument written for it on the entire album.


Before, there was bewilderment.
Nothing to use, but brute force and our tools.

Until eager minds from Mediterranean lands,
Founded their cults to collectively understand.

Together they sing,
Their glorious myth, of universal language

From only the best of theoreticians.

Together they sing,
Their brilliant saga, of their lingua franca.

Their works would survive,
Outlive any other dialect.

Together they sing.

Formulas recreate a
Science for us to agree,
To be passed down below to
New life that will outdate us.
Born to calculate all of
Mankind's ultimate problems
Preceding far among us,
A different form of titans
Making functions to define,
how we live throughout our lives
And creating standards for
Preventing more of us to die
Theorems constructed to
Explain the milestones of
Untouchable horizons,
That were supposed to be unlocked.

Some are, studied, well known.
Some are, secret, hidden.
Some to, be exploited.
Some to, be discovered.
Some are, old legacies.
Some are commodities
Some to, be utilized.
Some to, be recognized.

We, depend, on them,
So true, and genuine.
We, give in, to them
To expose the heavens.
We, depend, on them, to, guide, us,
Fact, and truth. So divine.
We, give in, to them, to trust,
To reveal, the, heavens.
(To help us to ascend.)

A machine, so elegant, a quantiverse, subsequent
A noble code, magnificent, phenomenal, exquisite.

Harmonize, data to comprehend.
Scrutinize, the cosmological,
Organize, its complete eloquence,
Centralize all the methodical.
