The story behind the sound.
It began with a tonsillectomy. It was June, 2016. I was 34 years old and getting my tonsils removed! During my long and painful recovery process I began thinking about how I should’ve gotten my tonsils taken out when I was a kid. The more I thought about it, the more I wondered what I would have been doing if I had gotten those dang tonsils out when I was younger. That’s when I realized I would have passed the time reading stacks and stacks of X-Men comics.
The second day was kind of a blur, but what I do remember was a trip to my local comic shop and buying a bunch of 90’s era X-Men comics. I couldn’t stop reading. Time was passing a little bit faster with the turn of every brightly colored page. I was hooked again! I knew I had to catch up on everything I missed in the last 20 years.
After a few months of expanding my collection, I had the idea to start writing music that could accompany me as I traveled the Marvel multi-verse. Retcon X was born.
