Our friend Bruce Rich of the musical group Novachild is trying to raise some much needed money online to support his family in a crisis situation.
Help an immensely talented fellow musician get back on his feet during these financially difficult times by buying some of his music at a hugely discounted price. Bruce Rich aka Novachild is offering up a huge collection of music for a small price and not only will you get a wonderful listening experience but you’ll also help a family in need.
Bruce says: “Once upon a time, I was a budding CIO for a small biotech company. Ultimately, however, the position proved to be a bad marriage of business partners and I came home every day feeling toxic. I decided to change this. I got out of it, and researching career changes, I felt that trucking would be a good fit for me.
Little Did I Know that the first year of trucking equates to making a McDonald’s fry cook salary. The companies advertise big numbers, but I’m not coming close to making what they promise in their flashy marketing literature. But now I’m stuck in a 1-year contract that I can’t afford to pay off.
The result of all this is simple: we’ve not been able to keep up on bills, so I’ve been advised to file bankruptcy - losing our house and car in the process and relocating my family elsewhere. While I am an Over The Road truck driver, due to some intense family emergencies that I am unwilling to divulge for deeply personal reasons, I am unable to return to my truck, so I’m not making any money until these situations are resolved.
I’m trying to raise enough money to pay attorney fees for our case, keep the lights on at home, and repair an ancient Geo Metro for roadworthiness. Once some of these things start falling into place, I can return to work and get things going again for our family.
WHAT YOU GET:
For every donation of $30 or more, I offer my entire available collection ofNovachild recordings composed over the past fifteen years, including a great deal of unreleased material. This represents, for me, an unfathomable amount of time writing, recording, engineering and learning. From the earliest (dare I call them) primitive, experimental recordings in a derelict bungalow using cheap stereo speakers and headphones…. to the most recent recordings that I’ve not even ‘album-ified’ produced in the Fractal Factory Studio (and FFS Mobile – my truck), you’ll get everything that managed to survive the great multiple hard drive crash of 2011.
Songs are available in multiple formats, including lossless formats for the fidelity geeks out there.
Everyone will receive undying gratitude from my beautiful family and I.
And if you don’t want the music, just give the download code I provide you to someone who may appreciate it.
Lastly, if you’re as broke as I am, I totally get it. Since you’re reading this now, I’m certain you’d like to help, so please share this campaign on your Facebook status for others to see. Eventually I hope to reach enough kind souls to meet my goal.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Thanks for helping our fellow independent musicians and artists.
I find the following pieces of art inspiring and somewhat arousing. I’d love to consult with Fernando on ideas for the Tech Messiah project.
From the FERNANDO VICENTE ANATOMÍAS artist series.
Fernando Vicente was born in Madrid, Spain, where he started working as illustrator and painter during the eighties. He creates very beautiful artworks mainly painted or mixing paint and photo. His illustration work can be seen in dozens of publications.
Makes me think of Regina Spektor’s song “Hooked Into Machine”.
Hey everyone, this is Brian Copeland – lead singer of Euphonic Dissonance giving you a long overdue update.
After more than a year away from recording Euphonic Dissonance songs we are back in the studio working on new material. Here is what we hope will be the first of many new tracks. Hope you enjoy listening to this fine cover of Neil Diamond’s “Solitary Man”. This is only a rough draft for now without vocals or guitar.
Be sure to comment and tell us what you think of this new song and stay tuned for new news from ED.
Do you like Zombie Video games? Brian Copeland of Euphonic Dissonance will be the voice of BASE – a commanding military voice heard barking orders through the crackling radio carried by a United States marine soldier. Could this BASE be the cause of this zombie outbreak? What do they know that they aren’t telling us? To find out – CLICK HERE to witness the development of this New and Exciting First Person Shooter Zombie Kill Fest!
Infection, and self-replication. The two ambitions of a virus that removed the very idea of safety from violence from the human experience. Each force of resistance it encountered was devoured. As the infection spread to the very last bastion of civilization, the people who faced certain infection carefully carved their stories into the cement walls of the desolate buildings around them. Proof that they once existed. But then, there were cries to push on. A handful of men and women the nation once sent away and baptized in the horrors of world war stand tall. They urge the fight to continue on. Is this madness, or will this be our salvation?
I Shall Remain is a bird’s eye view RPG that allows you to control the journey of a Marine who has awoken in a city infected by the Z0M-31 virus. Memory impairing head trauma requires him to slowly relearn who he was. When he comes to and realizes who he is, his peers are more convinced that people like him are man’s greatest weapon against certain extinction. Navigate the Marine through the city, organize teams of survivors and equip them to fight, plow through the crowds of zombies with lead, vehicles and explosives. The careful and calculated execution of this just might allow you to survive.
It was great fun working with the team behind I Shall Remain and we have no doubt this video game is going to be amazing.
Musician Moldover has found an innovative New Tech use for the Old Tech audio Compact Disc and his use of home built software synth controllers on stage have branded him The Godfather of Controllerism. He lists his genre on facebook as Neo-Post-Modern-Futuristic-NextSchool.
Moldover was bored with the old school way of selling music Compact Discs so he decided to get inventive. What did you expect from a guy that builds his own electronic controllers? His album isn’t just a CD – it’s a Theramin. A theramin is an electronic musical instrument, played by moving the hands through electromagnetic fields created by two metal rods [named after Leon Theremin (1896-1993), Russian scientist who invented it].
If technology and music are your life, brace yourself- MOLDOVER is about to reformat your soul. Hailed by 700,000 YouTube viewers as “The Godfather of Controllerism”, Moldover is a new breed of music icon. Combining the charisma of a rock star, the mad genius of a basement inventor, and the radical inclusiveness of the DIY internet generation, Moldover is “literally throwing away the rule book and reinventing the wheel” (Remix Magazine). Witness his balls-to-the-wall LIVE SHOW at a club, experience his MULTIPLAYER MUSIC INSTALLATIONS at a festival, or pick up and play the “LIGHT THERAMIN” packaging of his debut album and understand why the next paradigm for music is a one-man-brand called Moldover.
A brilliant combination of technology and art. It’s enough to make you wanna cry – beautiful job Moldover. Your instruments are art and your art are instruments.
The government (conspiring with big business) are constantly plotting ways to control the free enterprise of the internet and Euphonic Dissonance will be there to fight them every step of the way. We enjoy the ability to bring you new music downloads and it would be a shame if government restrictions kept us from continuing this. There is strength in numbers and we need your help to fight the good fight. Corporate hardliners in the Senate are rushing to push through a measure to give phone and cable companies absolute, unrestricted power over the Internet.
Called a “resolution of disapproval,” this measure would destroy all existing Net Neutrality protections and strip the FCC of its authority to protect Internet users – letting companies block our right to speak freely, connect with one another and share information on the Internet. If we can get just 51 votes in the Senate it will stop this free speech-killing measure in its tracks. We’re asking you to take action now to stand up for online freedom by letting your senators know you don’t support S.J. Resolution 6. The resolution would enable phone and cable giants like Comcast and Verizon to restrict access to competitive video services, mobile applications and other innovative services.
We love the ability to bring our fans new songs for download and we hope to provide you with more video in the future but actions by our government threaten our chances of providing you with all that great stuff.
Hello everyone. Brian of Euphonic Dissonance here with an update on our progress.
We’re back to toiling away on the Tech Messiah album deep within Aromatone Studios. It’s been awhile since we’ve worked on anything. Took a bit of a break to deal with this thing called life in this world that’s out of control. I found myself sorting through what we have worked on and I found this sweet little unfinished song. Realizing that we haven’t released anything in quite some time I thought it might be nice to give you something that lets you know we’re still alive and we’ve recently started kicking. Kicking is fun. So is setting stuff on fire. I probably just flagged myself as a potential looter suspect in the recent U.K. riots with the previous two sentences.
Again, this is only a rough draft of this song. It doesn’t have a title yet. It’s mostly bass and drum but I still find it quite moving even at this stage. Hope you enjoy the new track.
Hope you like the new song. Please leave us a comment telling what you think. Thanks to everyone for the support.

Brian explains why Euphonic Dissonance is labeled as progressive industrial music …
I must confess – I do tend to drift away from the self prescribed genre picked for Euphonic Dissonance when I’m writing songs but I can’t help it. If you are expecting ED to puzzle piece fit into the progressive industrial genre then you’re definitely going to be upset when you hear the full repertoire of our musical catalog. There are just too many wonderfully different styles of music in the world to listen to and learn from. How can a person possibly constrain themselves to just one style? In my mind – such a concept seems ludicrous and yet I chose to label the band with a very limiting genre distinction. Why?
Because, if I hadn’t chosen a label for this band someone else would. So I took the initiative and created a label that I felt best described the project in a broad sense. I simply combined two of the greatest influences on the creation of the band: progressive rock and industrial music. By doing this we created a new genre that didn’t exist before. The Progressive Industrial Music Genre was born.
Does that mean we can only perform those styles of music? Of course it doesn’t. We will continue to experiment with all sorts of musical genres for our own personal amusement and hopefully the amusement of others. We will continue to examine different styles such as aggrotech, electronic rock, techno, indie rock and dubstep. And in a pinch – we will always be able to rely on our progressive industrial roots.
If you were going to pick a genre for Euphonic Dissonance what style would it be? Here are a few songs to help you decide.
Thanks for listening and don’t forget to tell us the style you chose for us. We look forward to reading your responses.
Scientists have accidentally unearthed the Tech Messiah plot and they don’t even know they did it. To read about the Tech Messiah story CLICK HERE.
Is it possible that Apple computers could be involved in the Tech Messiah takeover? A recent discovery by British neuroscientists certainly seems to verify such suspicions. Having performed a brain scan on an Apple zealot, these neuroscientists declared that Apple was a religion! The neuroscientists had previously scanned brains of the religiously faithful and saw markedly similar results.
So yet another sign in the coming apocalypse and rising new order of the Tech Messiah has been delivered unto us all. We can choose to prepare or we can sit back and wait to become mindless zombies in the service of The Messiah. It’s your choice. Think about it before you pick up that iPhone. You only have to come in contact with the device just once and Apple’s specially designed nanotech virus will seep through your skin and turn you into one of them.
Do us all a favor and smash your iPhone now before it’s too late!!!! Don’t be fooled by the ease of use and reliability – it’s only there to lure you in and take over your brain.
Don’t want to smash your iPhone? Well, Euphonic Dissonance have a solution for you. Click the picture of the iPod below and you will be transported to our iTunes account. There you can download our progressive industrial music. We have secretly embed a anti-nanotech neuro-blocking rotating frequency that will sever you from the Tech Messiah’s mind control signal. You can then enjoy our music and live your life again.
