The If-Then Argument

The Value Premise

“It was maybe too ahead of its time.”   

A Side

B Side

Liner Notes

The brainchild of Brandon Funk and Ryan Lawrence ; the if-then argument started as a series of experimental jam sessions in an era when slicing waveforms on a computer became as synonymous as finding mathematical meaning on an electric guitar’s fret board. No right or wrong way to play, record, and construct musical compositions. This became the thesis of this project of experimental sounds and musical themes.

The project features solo interpretations; Ryan’s Black Market fo Human Organs, enters a trip-hop world that is haunted by organs and balances it’s dark undertones with vibrant pop sounds. And with Brandon’s The Cessation, a deep exploration in a stream of endless lush guitar layers and a fitting end to the value premise experiment.
