……..

in all seriousness, here is JD’s working CV description of Club Akirat:

Self-improvisational composition and skill independent progress through experimentation with instrument-assigned fictional characters, visual doubling, and composition with differentiated styles in mind. Six characters have fully formed identities and musical decision making processes I express relation to, while an additional four, I do not. Several of these characters have fictional record labels and record pressing companies, and several are, within the lore, from Saturn and Mercury. Club Akirat is at the moment a personal project so that I may explore different techniques and continue progression, however, eventually I plan to convert it into an Artificial Intelligence system for character-based digital improvisation and into a system to allow composers to improvise with themselves through iterative recordings with a psychological task to fulfill each iteration.
