Hello, this is Carl King. In 2005, I released an album under the name Sir Millard Mulch called "How To Sell The Whole F#@!ing Universe To Everybody", with guests Virgil Donati, Morgan Agren, and Nils Frykdahl of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. In 2010, I released an album under the name Dr. Zoltan ōbelisk called ďWhy I Am So Wise, Why I Am So Clever, And Why I Write Such Good SongsĒ with guests Marco Minnemann and virtuoso pianist Lalle Larsson.

Iíve done a bunch of stuff since then. Wrote a book (So, You're A Creative Genius... Now What?), made a documentary (Morgan Agren's Conundrum), made a cartoon (A Business Lesson With Frank Zappa), etc. 

Unfortunately, I took a long break from music. But it wasn't my fault! I contracted PTSD (not an STD mind you!) that I got from a car accident shortly after moving to Los Angeles. Over time, it caused me to become very sensitive to sound, so much that I could not even listen to music. But after recovering enough to make music again, Iím back.

For the past year, secretly, in seclusion, I have been composing and recording a new record called GRAND ARCHITECTS OF THE UNIVERSE. Itís a big 45-minute instrumental piece of music combining heroic metal and impressionist classical orchestral composition. Iíve been studying film scoring and orchestration through Berklee Online and am applying those techniques to my own music. Itís a continuation of my interest in Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Bartok, Ravel, and film composers like John Williams and Danny Elfman.
