About The Lobotomist


Sound Lobotomy is a procedure, a transmission, an immersive experience and the layers will get deeper as we grow. I say we, because it's a group effort to make this a reality for all and it takes the spectrum of many to change ourselves, and that is something I never want overlook or take for granted. The point of this whole thing is to create collective effervescence and add perspective within a community of bassheads. Only orgininal music is used in every set and is accompanied with familiar vocal chops and variations.  Talk to me, share your experience, engage with others, and if you want to contribute with anything, let me know :)and if you have a question, holla at me! This is for us.


I grew up in upstate New york for most of my childhood and moved to the Blue Ridge mountains in North Carolina in 2008. I discovered I was musically inclined and had an ear for writing music at a very young age, thanks to my Mom who played piano for me as a toddler. The piano quickly grabbed my heart and i fell in love with sound and their effect the vibrations had on humans. After years of on-and-off self training and a couple music lessons here and there, I decided to expand my ability to the beat and rhythm of music by learning how to play the drums (i thought drums were more masculine at the time lol, s'ignorant). I excelled in drumming very quickly and had friends that I would play with, but we never started any band officially. I then moved to NC where a new world introduced itself to me.


 In NY, I grew up in a very "christian" household, so my perspectives of life were VERY narrow,shallow, and unidirectional. I once viewed the bible as the only source for truth, and anything that went against it as far I translated it was blasphemy. Now, my perspective is ever evolving and constantly changing and I'm constantly trying to  learn new ways to see things. I give a lot of credit for the change in life to LSD. In 2013, I tried LSD for the first time at Electric Forest and I forgot all the bullshit of the world and remembered my true love, Sound. I then realized what I'm here on Earth for, Experimenting with Sound to help others in one way or another. I dove into the realm of Sound hard and started studying the craft. I then created Sound Lobotomy as the foundation for the journey ahead. Im high energy on the stage and my music will be aggressive, loving, dreamy, and straight nasty filth at points. This is a procedure, don't forget to sign the waiver ;)
