Near Complete Figures was born at some point of 2012 – 2013 when I was finished two of my other soloalbums. I had made one EP and four albums under the name of Jim Petrol. Jim Petrol is all electronic material and I wanted to do something differend and new. Wanted to create something more organic with real instruments.
I started to record a demo, and made four new tracks for a this new project. I gave it the name Near Complete Figures. NCF basically means, that I`m not complete as a humanbeing or a musician or an artist. I want to evolve and learn more about writing music and my personal skills of making music.
After the demo tracks, I talked it about my label, and they said that they will release Near Complete Figures material. I started to do an album for this new project. After all, the material was split into two EP`s called Chaos and Hope. Released in late 2013 and early 2014.
My influences are such as Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nine Inch Nails, Clint Mansell and other motion picture composers.
My main, ultimate goal is to get a song or a score into a movie. But after all, I make music for Near Complete Figures just cause I love to do music and make something out of my head.
