2. When did you first start? Sept of 2014
3. Why did you decided to start? During the summer of 2014, after numerous performances as the live synth drummer for Spaceship Earth we mutually parted ways and i started Ascentient. I have always been Involved in some aspect of experimental music and combining my love of future bass with my love of psychedelic prog rock just felt like the right direction for me to go. I am very involved in the Visionary arts culture and feel my music stems from the same field of consciousness that the current Visionary Art culture pulls from. My aim is to bring visionary experiences through auditory stimulation.

Ascentient is a combination of Ascent( to rise up) and Sentience (to be aware) and is intended to allow listeners to dance there demons away and rise up or ascend from any negative and unhealthy physical or mental behaviors, becoming aware of thought forms and the way the body talks to heal themselves and others.
