My friend Evan Bogunia creates and performs electronic music I've respected for years under the project dataf1ow. In December 2013, we collaborated to create this single, "Stay the Course." We initially recorded my vocals and ukulele tracks in the yoga studios at Langlab, a former warehouse located in South Bend that now serves as an artist collective and community space.

Evan wrote the rest of music around my recorded parts, did a lot of resampling, and repurposing of the recordings. Evan made a pad like instrument out of my voice and the hi hats, glitched melody, and SFX are all ukulele.

The lyrics of "Stay the Course" depict a story where two people, though never intending to know each other in the most intimate of ways, find themselves safe with one another and wrapped up in desire. The individuals both flow along with the circumstance and find themselves in an passionate and ethereal encounter.

For more brilliant music by dataflow:


Here we are
One and the same
We both need
More than we have
Though we never
Intended for this
Here we are
Flowing along
I glory in
The music you speak
And I need to feel
The rhythms you breathe
There's no harm
Here in the dark
Just our heat
Here where we are
