 “Startup Sounds” (March 2022): The debut EP that blends '80s Wave and sci-fi elements, delivering immersive soundscapes that move beyond traditional storytelling. Born from an initial concept of interstellar adventures, the project focuses on the auditory experience, inviting listeners into a world that merges electronic music with complex orchestration. This experimental approach showcases a departure from the artist's original story-driven concept, favoring a pure, sound-driven approach that captivates through its unique blend of past and future sounds.

At the heart of the EP is "Professor Peculio," a track that embodies the essence of the collection. It delves into the psyche of a scientist turned robot, struggling to preserve sanity as consciousness fades within a mechanical shell, racing to find a cure. This piece illustrates the EP's core—venturing into new sonic landscapes, balancing between the comfort of the familiar and the thrill of the novel.
