Bio...... .. .. Glass Lozano got his start as an acoustic artist in 1995 with his band Trinity Being under the moniker Giant Killer in Houston and moved to Colorado in 1998 where he experienced a transformation in his style. It was in the industrial/darkwave clubs and industrial bands in Denver where he found inspiration and a new sound. During this time, Glass would do keyboard work with The Josh Holloran Band now O'Holloran and play shows with a sister band Foolish Things of Mark Labriola/American Idol fame. Glass found himself in keyboard support of Josh Hollorans "Sense of Direction" and would tour all over the Colorado area with the band. Glass left the band during a short move back to Houston and the band would go on to win the coveted Estes Park battle of the bands opening for Margaret Becker and Third Day and record an EP in Nashville. They would play a handful of shows as The Turning and then the band was no more. During this time, and moves back and forth from Houston, Glass formed Industry of Faith with Toph Short and released "The Lost Generation" which one of it's singles "Eye of the Storm" found it's way on a compilation CD for Scum of the Earth in Denver Colorado. Between 2001-2004 Toph Short and Glass Lozano began to develop their unique electronic and trip hop sound and began playing shows in Denver. This duo would begin to make a name for themselves and add a few more members to the group. By the fall of 2004 the band was no more and Toph Short and Glass went their separate ways. Out of the ashes of Industry of Faith, two of the members went to form Synaptic Window and Glass formed The Glass Projeckt. Toph pursued other musical projects until forming The Royal Space Merics. The Glass Projeckt has been a studio project since 2005. In the summer of 2005 he released his first album- "Ghost Signature", which did well in the Colorado area and received air play gaining the attention of trip hop/breaks producer Tobi Love. Glass went to form an electronic project The Lab Animals with Tobi Love and sing lead vocals for Ft Collins Three Second Echo with Kody Slusher and A. J. Gramata until the fall of 2007. Glass and Toph Short would find a musical chemistry again in a short tenure with Ben Janzens band Stasis of Seasons and find his way again to radio with the single "Echo of Silence." Glass did work and played a show at Cervantes with keyboardist Gary Slaughter of The Vergers ex member of Velvet Acid Christ. Playing his last show in Denver, Glass moved back to Houston and took time to write and reflect over his time spent in Colorado for almost three years. During this time Glass played lead guitar with a local punk band The Ikari rubbing shoulders with Vatos Locos. He did keyboard work in the industrial group Oneness Darkness which led him to local producer and guitarist Irron Collins. In early 2010 Glass began working on his second album "Phobia" joining forces with Littleton Colorado's Nik of Stupid Human Suit. The album is in production at Irron Studios. Glass is founder of the collaborative musical entity The Deadly Nevergreen Collective (ASCAP). .. .. In the winter of 2009, Glass joined up with Black Queen Speaks and played keyboard with them until the fall of 2010. Glass has opened with Black Queen Speaks for A Gracious Few and American Bang and has played Warehouse Live, Texas Rock Fest and House of Blues. He has also shared a stage with locals: Pale, Saturate and One Eyed Doll. He wishes the band well and enjoyed working with them. Glass is busy in the studio working on his new album. In the spring of 2012, Glass revealed the name of his new band name Underwater Canyons to replace The Glass Projeckt. Glass is now working with Ryan Ladkau an amazing lead guitarist and auditioning drummers and bassists. 10 new ideas have been written in addition to the Phobia material. .. .. Glass Lozano has a powerful commanding voice and stage performance. He has a unique blend of acoustic and electric guitar with synth and piano textures that takes it's listener into his mind and into his world. He is a bard and a poet , a songwriter, a gypsy that lives in the shadows of a post industrial world. From his elaborate stage make up..it conjures images such as a joker, a court jester, and a dark mime. From this theatre comes a sad strong voice filled with pain and emotion and depth from his quiet musical journey into the public ear. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ......

Glass Lozano got his start as an acoustic artist in 1995 with his band Trinity Being under the moniker Giant Killer in Houston and moved to Colorado in 1998 where he experienced a transformation in his style. It was in the industrial/darkwave clubs and industrial bands in Denver where he found inspiration and a new sound.

Glass found himself in keyboard support of Josh Hollorans "Sense of Direction" and would tour all over the Colorado area with the band. During his stay with The Josh Holloran Band, Glass would compete at Estes Park in the battle of the bands and compete against "For All The Drifters" The Drifters would go on to form Paper Route after winning the battle. Glass left the band during a short move back to Houston and the band would go on to win the coveted Estes Park battle of the bands the next year opening for Margaret Becker and Third Day and record an EP in Nashville. They would play a handful of shows as The Turning and then the band was no more. During this time, and moves back and forth from Houston, Glass formed Industry of Faith with Toph Short and released "The Lost Generation" which one of its singles: "Eye of the Storm" found its way on a compilation CD for Scum of the Earth in Denver Colorado. Between 2001-2004, Toph Short and Glass Lozano began to develop their unique electronic and trip hop sound and began playing shows in Denver. This duo would begin to make a name for themselves and add a few more members to the group. By the fall of 2004 the band was no more and Toph Short and Glass went their separate ways. Out of the ashes of Industry of Faith, two of the members went to form Synaptic Window and Glass formed The Glass Projeckt. Toph pursued other musical projects until forming The Royal Space Merics. The Glass Projeckt has been a studio project since 2005. The following story is true and factual and has made this duo into a sort of an urban legend. Glass would also meet other colorful and talented characters along the way.
THE STORY OF THE GLASS PROJECKT
Hovering on the outer rim of the solar system is a little world tucked away At arms reach it is as surreal as it is real and there are many visitors but most cannot see the busy traffic of the cities because they are shielded by several large moons.
It is here along this stretch of space where there are the busy traffic lanes of commercial industrial ports. All along these ports are taverns and night clubs that glitter in the alien atmosphere...
At the far end is a slow moving cruiser. A large window opens up to allow one to view the celestial beauty just beyond a 12 inch expanse of tempered glass to keep everything regulated inside. It is here where a quiet man awakes from cryogenia. He has come a long way and seems to have been transported from somewhere. Soft music is playing in the background and he feels calm and peaceful.
The ideas for The Glass Projeckt first began to germinate in the artist Glass when he was working with the band Three Second Echo or rather the lyrical and musical ideas were an extension of The Glass Projeckt; for the album Ghost Signature was already underway and, as a side projeckt breaking off from the orbit of IOF, he decided that he wanted to be at the controls of his own destiny and lead a group of talented musicians. He began on his own and took some of the music that he wrote from the IOF project and began to craft a new tale.
Glass spent about 2 months reinventing the songs and built up the layers of each track. Things really started to progress for him when he picked up a pair of Mackie Hr 624 studio monitors and a Line 6 Guitar Port to help him transfer his ideas from his Roland Fantom keyboard- that had been trustily by his side for about 4 years. Many ideas saved in small bite sized portions on hard disks is where they were sometimes stored-or in his head. Glass likes to call it his laboratory. A good friend Toph Short from the IOF days and present collaborator would like to call the style, of how Glass works, as scientific and experimentory such as a doctor in a large white clean sterile room with his patients on the lab table.
Glass however in real life is a very normal slightly lanky individual with a head full of compartments that operate simultaneously. The creative engine is what drives him and it is here where he teeters on the verge of mad scientist, madness and sheer genius-at least that is what his close contemporaries say. But, he seldom makes an appearance in real life and out in public because he leads a simple nomadic life. Unless of coarse he does make appearances on the stage to perform his musical works. Aside from that, he is a simpleton living with his girlfriend, in a house, along a fold in a very quiet neighborhood in Houston.
The musical bed from The Glass Projeckt first starts with foundations of jazz and blues As mentioned above, some of these ideas began to emerge while working with TSE Glass had made a few visits to the local nightclubs and was inspired by the raw power that came from the industrial scene. In his mind, the speakers on the ceiling with the intricate piping that he saw above the dance floor, became a series of strange statues and forms peering down with red and blue eyes. This architecture would flow around to form the lights that bounced along to the legs and arms swaying in the dark layers of music. Each person was a solar system unto themselves- an ornate piece of a larger whole swaying as if one organism.
Glass grew up in Houston. At an early age, developed a liking for the piano and the guitar and would sing in choir at school. His mother would often wonder why he would sit at the piano and play for hours. He told his mom that he was writing a symphony and explained what each part meant. Often times he would wake up suddenly in the night to go into the humid garage to flesh out a fresh vocal idea. He would love to hear the vocal lines echo off the walls forming a nice singing chamber. During this time is when he began to develop himself as a songwriter-quickly filling up notebooks of songs that he had written. It was a very amazing thing when the lyrics would start to flow and things would just start to click on paper. The old red piano that looked like it was painted several different colors, which originally was to be meant for just a borrowed thing resting in the garage until someone could come and pick it up, became a regular part of his family- and a regular part of his life. He would open the large sound door and listen to the differences in tone and feeling. These sounds were engrained into his memory.
It was not all rosy however. Plagued by bad sound recordings-even to this day, has been a constant thorn in Glass' side. Glass use to take apart everything and would not put it back together. It was not the skill in putting it back together that was his goal, but the taking of the parts, meant for one thing, and creating something completely different. He would experiment with parts of a gutted typewriter and build a new working model with electric car motors and things. One day his mother walked in to find hundreds of typewriter pieces scattered all over the floor. Glass was in the corner under a light he had plugged in with some old electric car parts and a selection of pieces from the typewriter. This side has always been with him -boxes of junk neatly stacked on shelves awaiting a future project. His mother was concerned because one of the contraptions was smoking.
The recording sessions in those days were far from glamorous. There was a way to take several tape recorders and make multiple tracks It was often a tricky procedure but manifested itself in a successful manor in a strange way. The funniest thing probably seeing the young Glass holding one tape recorder up to the other speaker in close proximity to get a two track recording.These odd experiments led to a series of cassette tape projects with 8 or nine songs recorded as 3 or 4 track recordings. It seemed to work and people were pleased with the finished product, because he would hear them talk about how they would play the cassette tapes as they drove to work or off on errands.
A small collection of these tapes have been collected and are stored somewhere in the catacombs of Glass' personal possessions. They are also stored at a friends house and sit until maybe one day someone hears them again.
Aside from these small vignettes of Glass' life, he remains a very secretive and private individual. Even talking with his close friends there is very little they know about him. What they are familiar with is his music and working with him on the projects together -The life of the individual is not really needed because the art of the individual is what is important to him. The crafting of tales in songs is the outlet to reveal his pain. What more than that, is his own family and how that most people that know them in Houston do not even know that the Lozano family have an older brother. The request from his own mother about sending him a short story of his life is what inspired this piece-as many that have helped him, I the Moth, am another help to reveal his story and his mind to people that will listen written down by the fingers of an insect.
Glass always had a fascination with the harp and the guitar. When not playing the piano he would play the guitar and write different kinds of songs with this instrument. It began to be his instrument of choice for songwriting. Over several years, with an aid of an instructor, he developed his speed skill and style and would begin finding an audience with an Irish folk style-playing for as many people that would listen. This found him playing in front of small groups and larger groups-until he had a taste of playing and singing in front of hundreds. Like bad recordings, dead end jobs would keep him underground for years- Always struggling with getting a car and saving up enough money to buy decent equipment. Eventually, he would find that job and purchase that car.
When he decided to move to Colorado, he had developed somewhat of an underground following under a different name. Venturing out into the unknown would bring him before another unknown set of circumstances. There was something magical about staying in Colorado. For one thing, several dreams while he lay sleeping, opened up a large meaningful and adventurous time for what lay ahead. Glass was optimistic and soon branched off from the friends that he had moved up with and found a place to flourish on his own. When Glass first arrived to Colorado He was still somewhat of -country folk- with a light accent. He would get in trouble for saying certain words at work such as "fix'n ta", or I'm fix'n to" People would look up from their cubicles and chuckle. But this was how he was raised and didn't know any better. Glass was also very thin and kind of grungy looking; wearing lots of plaids and over sized shirts. He also had a gotee that he had grown and had been with him for many years. The one thing that was the most noticeable about Glass was his auburn hair. And for that matter, he was not known as Glass then. Since then, he has filled out and become more of a gentle giant in stature.
Glass had only made a few appearances in the music scene in Colorado; the leader of several musical projects and aiding to help build and establish others. He is known as a behind the scenes guy and for the first 6 years that he was in Colorado he helped build a project called IOF in which he met Toph Short and his brother Stephan Short; who have grown to be like 2nd brothers to him. Through thick and thin, they begin to develop and forge an indie electronic sound that was all their own. They released a concept album that built for them a small following and helped to establish the new sound that they were developing. The moment begin to build as they decided to release the album as an independent release and picked up two more members to begin working on the live performance. The downfall of this project was that there was no clear defined leader of the group and shortly disbanded under the weight of its own turmoil. Glass also under the weight of his own personal financial struggle made several trips back to Houston to live with his parents and friends until another opportunity opened up for him to make it back to Colorado. It was during this time that he met his girlfriend online while promoting his group -but it was not before he met another girl that helped shape him into the artist he is today. This time was a very dark and winding staircase that led to deep blackness for him. It was also part of the emotion that helped fuel the new sound for IOF and later The Glass Projeckt. It was here, where a simple innocent country boy unraveled and began to molt into something entirely different. It is in these moments that define an artists life. It is unexplained. His friends around him began to see the change In him as well. It seems as though bad relationships can work to make something good-at least offer the fuel necessary to create a creative engine. The young country boy broke into a million pieces and the pieces lay scattered in a broken box of shards. Glass began to write in the privacy of his own pain an album outside of IOF and TGP.
After a few rabbit trails back and forth from Houston to Colorado, Glass found himself without a band as IOF spun off in its own direction. He decided that he was going to move back to Colorado without his friends knowing to get his life together. He got a great job and soon had enough money to get the car he had always wanted-a silver Eclipse which he named Eve and a nice set of studio monitors. He decided to form the glass projeckt, to see what he could do with all the shards he had become. He took two months out and wrote the album Ghost Signature, -A collection of 14 songs. A brief reappearance from dormancy greeted him with old hurts and wounds as the alliances shifted as all bands struggle to remain alive in their own way. Things were not the same and each had grown their own separate ways.
There was a mutual friend that had a band called Fair Well. The friends seemed to be able to work well together in that light. It was learned that some of the members of the old IOF split off to form another group Synaptic Window -the bass player would hover between that group and Fair Well. It was also during this time when a certain Moth came out of his cocoon and began to weave a certain tale. It was also seen that the graphic design of this certain Moth would be a good match for the newly forming Glass Projeckt. ;)
Fair Well found a little nest to grow in at a friend's house' garage. Jim Brunetti, the owner of the house acknowledged Glass as a good keyboard player. Fair Well would later become Stasis of Seasons. Stasis is now a vibrant figure in the Denver underground scene with its cult following with the old members of IOF -Toph Short and Stefan Short respectively.
Glass joined up with that project as a way to warm up to his old friends and to heal old hurts with IOF. Also, it was the interest he had in Ben Janzen's music. The two formed a musical bond and friendship that lasts to this day. Glass did a collaboration with Ben before that time- Echo of Silence- an electronic version of one of Ben's songs that made its way to 1190 AM in Ft. Collins, Colorado and was played regularly. As the band began to build in its own momentum, Glass began to develop a unique sound that he created for Fair Well. He would later carry that sound into a band that Glass would play for..Black Queen Speaks. The lineup played one show at a benefit barbecue that served a delicious roasted pig to all of its guests and Fairwell began to gain a small following.
As the musical waters had changed with IOF, Glass began looking for a new band as he wrote and produced TGPs Ghost Signature. He would find two guys in Ft Collins Colorado which he auditioned for and got the position as lead vocalist for The Ft Collins Project- it would later become Three Second Echo and then become Wake The Pilot. The chemistry between these guys was explosive and 5 songs were soon written. It was at this time where glass was first introduced to myspace.com and would find a rich bed to share his music with the world. This was during the time of Myspace's infancy.
Glass juggled three projects at once: Fair Well, The Glass Projeckt, and Three Second Echo. He began to develop his production skills and was soon writing a lot of material for three different acts. It was also at this time while he was branching out and networking online to find new markets for his music when he met Tobi Love on http://www.acidplanet.com/
Tobi Love and Glass decided to do a musical collaboration online sending tracks back and forth from Miami to Colorado. Glass laid down vocals for a tune Tobi wrote called -She Cries For Morning- More collaborations were decided and a new alliance was formed.
The four projects that glass worked on simultaneously soon became two as Glass parted ways from Fair Well on good terms. Also, Three Second Echo disbanded from its own financial and internal struggles however, that was not before they enjoyed a small brief taste of the mainstream music scene in Denver-and enjoyed a nice rehearsal space at The Walnut Room playing a few shows around town. Kody the guitarist of TSE and glass remain good friends and continue to work on collaborations. Kody is now playing guitar and leading his own band called: Wake The Pilot with their new frontman: George Young.
BRIDGING AN INTERVAL OF TIME AND A RECAP
In the summer of 2005 Glass released his first album- "Ghost Signature", which did well in the Colorado area and received air play gaining the attention of trip hop/breaks producer Tobi Love. http://www.shejay.net/artistDetail.php?userID=2818. Glass went to form an electronic project The Lab Animals with Tobi Love and sing lead vocals for Ft Collins Three Second Echo with Kody Slusher and A. J. Gramata until the fall of 2007. During this time, The Glass Projeckt showed signs of forming with Link Talley and Dj Delirio coming on board for a short time and plans were made to re-release "Ghost Signature" as "Ghost Signature Club Mix" -however, the members of the band were scattered all over Colorado and forming the group had incredible obstacles to over come. Glass and Toph Short would find a musical chemistry again in a short tenure with Ben Janzens band Fairwell/Stasis of Seasons and find his way again to radio with the single "Echo of Silence." Glass did work and played a show at Cervantes with keyboardist Gary Slaughter of The Vergers ex member of Velvet Acid Christ. Playing his last show in Denver, Glass moved back to Houston and took time to write and reflect over his time spent in Colorado for almost four years writing 12 volumes. During this time Glass played lead guitar with a local punk band The Ikari rubbing shoulders with Vatos Locos. He did keyboard work in the industrial group Oneness Darkness which led him to local producer and guitarist Irron R. Collins IV. In early 2008, after creating a few EP's: "Piano Death Sessions and Amore" in 2007 and doing a collaboration with Tripnotic, Glass began working on his second album "Phobia" joining forces with Littleton Colorado's Nicholas Heyl of Stupid Human Suit. It was during this time, that Glass purchased Protools and began to transition over from his Line 6 interface he used to record "Ghost Signature." Nicholas and Glass would find an incredible chemistry as songwriters and arrangers as they began to work on tracks: "Neglect", "Ash", "Kings and Queens" a cover of The Cranberries "Zombie" and later "Trip Inside My Head" The duo forged a new alliance to do an ep and would bring in additional help from Irron R. Collins IV and the shadowy-Technodrone adding her prowess with her work on Deus Ex. From this nucleus, the duo decided they should begin looking for a producer to help produce "Phobia." In this experimental stage finding a balance between acoustic and industrial rock, Glass would add to his songwriting software Reaper and cut a dozen or so rough ideas and displayed them on Reverb Nation and Myspace.
FORAYS INTO THE HOUSTON UNDERGROUND
In the winter of 2009, Glass joined up with Black Queen Speaks http://www.blackqueenspeaks.com/ winning the slot out of 30 keyboardists and auditioning with "She" writing a baroque piece for them. He carried the sound that he had begun to develop in Fairwell..a mixture of soul, jazz and darkwave. He played keyboard with them until the fall of 2010. Glass worked on one song with Michael Blas entitled "Fire and Soul" a collaboration of Glass' s song "The Fire That Light's Up The Sky." Glass has opened with Black Queen Speaks for A Gracious Few and American Bang and has played Warehouse Live, Texas Rock Fest and House of Blues. He has also shared a stage with locals: Pale, Saturate and One Eyed Doll. After leaving the band to concentrate on The Glass Projeckt, Glass looked back after a time of reflection, to see he had played keyboard with one of the best new acts to come out of Houston..also to recollect after writing about his full experience in the band in Volume 8 and 9 of his writings, the time where he was present for the conversation about marketing and Facebook that would lead BQS to amass a fan-base that now climbs near 100,000. With their second EP release and a video in the works opening for national acts, this band is on the verge of greatness. Glass is grateful to be apart of their story.
Having lost their frontman two years ago, Glass became apart of another rising bands story. The Apostles https://www.facebook.com/theapostlesROCK set out to find a new lead singer. In the fall of 2010 after auditioning 40 vocalists from all walks of life and styles including an American Idol contestant, they chose Glass Lozano to lead them. As the band completed their album with their new frontman in about 5 months, the band set off on fire playing material from their new album "The Sad Lonely Truth" headlining their first show with Downfall Rising, Adamantium, Fear Fed Eyes and Engine 69. Next, was the Coffin Case Hard Rock and Fashion Show gaining exposure on 94.5 The Buzz with Sid-17, Fallacy, The Bayou City Outlaw Band and Otenki in the Warehouse Live Ballroom. During this time, Glass also rellocated his private label Blue Eden Records to a new facility. In attendance that night for their second show were some of his old bandmates -members of Black Queen Speaks. Glass debuted "Challengers" A Capella for sound check on July 29th 2011 bringing down the house with cheers and approval by the Coffin Case girls.
ProjectSanitarium.com writes about The Apostles first show which they headlined July 16th 2011 for the Jetspeed Metal Music Showcase:
"The Apostles closed out the show, another band I have never seen. Again, because of merch and load out, I didn’t get to watch much, but I wanna chack them out another night when I can watch their entire set. The singer has this stage presence about him that is just, different, can’t really explain it, different in a way that makes you want to watch, just so at ease, movements so fluid and sounded real good. It’s nights like this that make me proud to support local rock music, this bill was solid from start to finish with something for everyone."
Glass left The Apostles August 9th 2011 due to creative differences and musical direction. Glass also played some of his old IOF material with the band. The Apostles then went on to replace Glass with a new frontman after an interval of 7 months or so had past.
At the beginning, The Apostles had picked a local producer to record their album, but the band decided that after hearing a few tracks they would move on to a new producer. Glass was asked by A.D. Rountree of 94.5 the Buzz in Houston to submit Apostles tracks to the radio station. Since Glass didn't have tracks ready with his new band, he decided to submit instead The Glass Projeckt material because it had been recorded recently. After a few months, TGP was selected instead for iHeartradio's new emerging artists and would be added to 350+ radio stations throughout the United States. The Glass Projeckt was also approached by Slydawg internet radio! As the band imploded and with its producer, Glass' side project would move forward. The Glass Projeckt is now a 94.5 the Buzz band and receiving national streaming of its music.
The Glass Projeckt hovers in the dance music genre, but has deep roots in folk, soul and dark-wave electronica taking in elements of: industrial, metal, post punk and pop forging a new genre members like to call "space industrial" -keeping with strong dark fantasy and science fiction themes.
2011 Glass Projeckt Merge:
In Aug 2011, Toph Short and Glass Lozano decided to end an 8 yr. hiatus and discuss what would become of Industry of Faith. In addition, the Three Second Echo material and Lab Animals material would merge into the Projeckt to form one body of work. Two additional mini projects a gothic acoustic project called The Language of Moths and Glass' experimental instrumentals -Tech Observes Jazz, both created in 2005, would merge to form a new project of which the name had not been disclosed. These "mini" projects were part of the structure within the writing of Phobia.
2012 The Cell Divides in Two
In 2012, Glass revealed that the Glass Projeckt would be dividing in two. Glass would keep The Glass Projeckt intact as his main studio project and seek to put together a new band: Underwater Canyons. In June 2012, instead of releasing the anticipated Phobia album, he released the EP "Of Love and Heartbreak" which features 7 b-sides of "Ghost Signature." In addition to the EP, he announced the launch of his new design company to replace Submersive Designs-Dark Rabbit Studios. All of the main design sites and music sites were re-vamped. With the launch of the studio, he released along with the EP "Deconstructing The Portal of Sorrow" A new watercolor/pencil. An experimental video with the same name set to "Mannequin" was also released on Vimeo and Open Film. Open film has now featured the video on its distribution network Blinkx. "I'm All Alone" Is the title track b-side that has never been released until June 2012. Those that purchased the EP received a signed copy of the print "Deconstructing The Portal of Sorrow." A run of prints have been made. The forming of Underwater Canyons has been slow and auditions have begun. A formal announcement will be made when the right line-up has been chosen. Glass has been busy writing new material for his new band. A select few volunteered to hear the new Underwater Canyons material, and the first to hear was Jarrett Brown, a fan that had stretched all the way back to 2003 to the IOF days. It was exciting to discover and Jarrett will be received a signed copy of Glass' new watercolor and EP.
Forays Into The Unknown: Underwater Canyons
Having had The Glass Projeckt, a successful studio project since 2005, Glass Lozano revealed in 2012 the name of his new band Underwater Canyons. The work began slow, a handful of ideas from the bands that he was in previously: Three Second Echo/Wake the Pilot, Black Queen Speaks and The Apostles. A year of taking a break from the scene and a few months of auditioning musicians for the band led him to consider the idea of becoming a solo act and writing a demo of the new material.
"I've had a string of bad years with computer hard drive and software crashes. A power supply meltdown for a laptop and a navigation problem on board the Roland Fantom 16 track sequencer just this year..this has set me back a little. It's not easy to replace expensive equipment sometimes."
This has led Glass into more experimental waters. Recording equipment intact and a new Behringer Vampire combo, new electric guitars and a host of video, music and graphic editing software has led the artist into the world of music videos, illustration and animation.
"I'll begin playing live shows when I have updated all of my equipment and have completed a UC Ep. For now, I'll paint the world with glitchy promotional material which you can find on You tube..I've had some offers to play live, but when the time comes, I'd like to start off with a well designed visual and aural experience.."
"The Glass Projeckt has this sort of underwater theme, but I wanted it to be a true underwater project, so I decided to give half of it a new name. Its mutation would take on to itself the new growth and development of where the projeckt had come from. I had not moved into video or animation with the projeckt, and I felt that UC was the perfect avenue to began to explore this hidden love of mine."
Underwater Canyons, leaves off where The Glass Projeckt ended..
UC is like all pistons firing at once, where projeckt was just music..a steam engine of creativity. UC explores film noir, but also the art and content of political propaganda, and murky philosophies, sadness, and the unknown..It is a well of emotion powering to life..a leviathan that rises from the deep. At times it is acoustic and ambient. -other times it is driving and anthemic.
"I find tremendous freedom in this project. It is a way to explore the depths of what inspires me, to write and create without boundaries."
Mergers and Acquisitions
In August 2012 Glass revealed that Phobia, the much anticipated 2nd Glass Projeckt album, would be merging with the new material of Underwater Canyons to form one album entitled "Cardinal Points." Glass also revealed to Turtle, a dj on heaven and hell radio, that Underwater Canyons would take the place of The Glass Projeckt officially as the new band name. Turtle played "Trip Inside My Head." and will be featuring the new material on his radio show.
Phobia/Cardinal Points will be a collaboration between Nik Heyl and Glass Lozano. The album has been in production for 7 years. The album will feature a poster for each song, graphic design by winners of the Cardinal Points graphic design contest, and remix artists for the album.
Here is a working set list for the album:
Trip Inside My Head
