Tropes present in Jonah Dempcy's works:
Digital Piracy Is Okay: To the point where every single piece of music he has ever made is free completely free.
Epic Rocking: His tracks, like a large amount of jazz, can easily go beyond the seven-minute mark.
He Also Did: Shocked that he has an entire section of discography released under a name you've never heard of? He also regularly speaks about philosophy. Some of his song titles and samples reference this.
Guest Star Party Member: Over time, Lucas Pickford, Cochemea Gastelum, Michael Shrieve, Seamus Blake and Matthew Garrison have appeared on Revolution Void records, to name a few.
Jason Trefts assists with Silver Server
Genre-Busting: Although he sticks mainly to the various types of electronic jazz, he has also dipped into Dubstep, Ambient, House, IDM, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, downtempo, and even straight-up electronic rock.
Out of Order: The order in which the albums are recorded doesnít seem to have much effect on their release dates.
Pop-Cultural Osmosis: He's (sadly) probably best known for the soundtrack to Amorphous+. A side effect is that those who have heard of him don't know anything besides Revolution Void note To be fair, it was his first project .
Shout-Out: A pretty blatant one. One of his songs is called ďI Love Daft PunkĒ.
Another one, rather obscure, is his song "Infornography", which is named after a chapter of Serial Experiments Lain. Also, the song "As We May Think" is a shout out to the essay by Vannevar Bush, first published in The Atlantic in July 1945 in which he expresses his concern for the direction of scientific efforts towards destruction, rather than understanding, and explicates a desire for a sort of collective memory machine with his concept of the memex.
