Futant Oblivion was my solo project in a major learning phase from 1999-2010. Now I am moving on with a new project Dirty Unicorn in 2018. The first single, Croatoan, can be heard here.






What is music to you? What does it give you?

Those who give praise often need praise in return. (Charles Bukowski)

What is your music dream?

Too remain a constructive force as a musician to end Capitalism and express more cooperation.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

peace on earth without torment and a DNR clause

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

another one bites the dust

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

many, too many genres to name or define

What inspires you to make music?


What is the message you want to send with your music?

evolution, not evilution, Nirvana, a state of being. Not state contol.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

never done it, stage fright. Only with trusted friends.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

more intellectual subjects over the baser instincts of humanity promoted in modern music. Maybe get off the crotch issue of demise that most music promotes. Promotion of Post Modernistic art is pretty much BS. Most music is promoted only to the youth, as the youth have strong sexual urges, and musicians always knew that sold records. Groupies they wanted anyway I guess, followers.

What do you think of Drooble?

I value peer opinions of other musicians etc over those that never even could tune an instrument. Drooble is not the same as other sites and offers constructive criticism.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

darkness of humanity and the overall aspect of the downward spiral we all are aspring to as a species. Humanity has always hated itself and it's own species overall. Other animals are not that way.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

A red state in usa offers a diverse music scene? REALLY? I never knew that! I need a 'smart' phone for that!

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

It's a syndication overall. Many aspring unknwon artists/bands do not get the recognition for their talent and do exist online and I try to support them. I refuse to buy physical media from bands that are mostly already established and already possess the revenue stream for their popularity. I guess I like bands that are not entirely well known, independent, and accept liberation of their art over the popularity the masses want them to make, or the syndicated record labels/media tell them how to do it to sell out.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Nevermore, Dissection, Sentenced, Sanctuary, Insomnium, Thulcandra, Ahab, many others too many to mention. End the Syndicates.
