Staring At Your Hologram is an album-length instrumental deconstruction / revision & remix of my Non-Believers record which came out in May 2015. The songs are sometimes still recognizable in their new shapes but have been sewn together into one long track.

For the most part I took away the drums and the vocals, rearranged some parts and brought instruments to the fore that in the original album were more of a bed for the guitars and vocals. Tape echo and reverb have been judiciously applied. If the most obvious influences on Non-Believers are bands like New Order or the Cocteau Twins, then for this version of the album i was drawing on a different part of the 80s landscape and trying to imagine what it would sound like if Arthur Russell or Cluster made an album by remixing the basic tracks. Unlike a record with singing and words and super-linear songs this is meant more as something you can put on and either pay attention to, or not.

The cover painting is another beauty by Trudy Benson, who painted the cover of the original Non-Believers album. Likewise the back cover of the LP will be another photograph by Lucas Blalock. So the whole album is meant to be a weird mirror version of the original.
