In 2001 - Rodrigo Soto AKA 'Sirius' suffered a drug induced psychosis, and has used this condition to channel his creativity into music and the arts. For the past 12 years, he has gone in and out of psychiatric wards, forever trying to find the reason behind 'his drugging'.
Blaming his best friend for selling him an '___' based substance that took 3 months to wear off (and 12 years to recover), Rodrigo was spiralling out of control - unable to trust the world, especially believing 'they' were after him in the first place.
Believing the Authorities were after him, all due to an intense case of Psychological Delusion, Paranoia and Psychosis, he discovered that the only solution to his ills, was to turn his greatest weakness into his strength, and thus goes by the alter ego 'Sirius' taking the form of channeling his delusional thoughts in the form of the Arts, specifically in music, but not to mention photography, digital artwork, 3d Animation, Multimedia Video Production, DJ'ing, and last but not least - story telling.
Rodrigo believes that an individual knows their own worst trait more than anything else in the world, and that they should channel this weakness into something positive, in his case... music.
The Album "Skilled Psychosis" works together with his autobiography - It is an allegory of 12 years of experiences, telling a story from track 1 through to the last track, a progression of his life and musically created for the intended experience.
Using creative writing skills to paint a picture of a factual, and exciting life lived in Psychosis, he intends to let the world know, that schizophrenia is a symptom of a difficult to understand condition - not a 'Mental Illness'.
He wants to educate those wanting to know more about how someone could believe they are "The Devil" or "The Anti-christ" or why they may believe "The World is After Them"............or even to believe...that they may have unknowingly killed someone - intense delusional disorder.
Safe to say, he wants to educate this through his upcoming autobiography - and through music.

Can't really add much to your thread but I liked the music a lot, very professional sounding and well put together. I preferred the ATS track to Frug Induced Psychosis, but they all sound good really.
Good luck with this, it sounds like quite the concept album/book.

Congrats on your book and music. Amazing that you have been able to pull this off. I want to wish you best of luck with both endevors. The cover of your book has some cool artwork as I am sure your CD does as well. Incredibly story from what I can tell. Thank you for sharing.
