About The Magician

The Magician is a narrative EP and online experience centered around one continuous story about two central characters, the Magician and the Creation. Created as a means to explore themes of pride and innocence, characteristics pulled from the major arcana of the tarot was central to conceptualizing these characters and this story.

This online experience will allow you to uncover the full story, accessible as you scroll through the site. The concept and music of The Magician was created over the past year as my culminating experience while at Berklee in Valencia, Spain. I hope you enjoy exploring this small story as much as I've enjoyed creating it.

Special Thanks to

Naomi Westwater for being the guiding hand, an inspiring friend, and a fucking brilliant magician.

David Gaspar for bringing my vision to life. I couldn't be more grateful.

The friends and family I've made in Spain for making me a better musician and person. I couldn't have found a better crew to experience this past year with.

Robert Day for allowing me a year to find my potential, in so many ways. I love you.

Mom, Dad, and Brother Kittinger for not always knowing what the hell I'm doing, but supporting me anyways.

What shadowed cross
Twists and turns into knots
Makes a fool of all men
Turns this flesh into dust

And reveals all the blood
And the coldest of love

When the fire of a heart
Starts the journey afar
To right all mistakes
And return to this place

When the sickness of all
Let the matter absolve
They do not care
And for them it will break

And reveal all the blood
And the coldest of love

All will be undone
