Finding a shack on a beach in Mexico which he rented for 30 US dollars /month (and managing, despite the tide rising below him under the floorboards, to record instrumentation for several of the tracks with a Triton keyboard that would one day be part of the album, "Submadreamgun") he drove back North with his keyboard, settling on Austin, Texas. In Austin, he rented a room in a shared flat with University of Texas students and that is where he recorded his vocals.
It was here he finished this first album - the experimental-electronica /electroacoustic work, “Submadreamgun.” -experimenting with music’s potential to focus human energy.
He made Submadreamgun as a sound art installation which debut in 2003... he met artist Will Epps, then-student at the San Frans. Institute of Art, and began to formulate his “MUSIC IS ART” movement..See http://www.alexsharpcole.com/synchronicity-and-cultural-revolution
