Switch Theory is a full service music production house. The film world is full of traditionalist film composers. Switch Theory is based on the idea that there are so many fresh new approaches to film scoring that are untouched as yet. By switching genres and twisting styles together, our composers are able to create exciting and hauntingly deep emotions. Our objective is to create multi-dimensional sound that is not only heard but felt.

The Scientific Method is an abstract electronic music project by Savannah, GA based solo artist Jim Hughes. Refusing to be confined by the boundaries of any one niche, one of his unique characteristics is his ability to create very unique sets of instrumentation that can rarely be confined to one genre. While very hard to classify, his music could be compared to respected innovators such as Apparat, Ulrich Schnauss, Burial, Telefon Tel Aviv and Tycho. At the same time avant-garde and addictively catchy, soothing and dissonant, the Scientific Method merges both musical genre and brain hemisphere.
Immersed in music culture since the early age of four and classically trained as a multi-instrumentalist with intensive focuses on drums, clarinet, guitar, bass and vocals, his sound exhibits an interestingly organic quality. His music fuses the classic orchestral vibe with glitch, IDM, and progressive elements that seem to appeal to not only the electronic crowd, but also manages to entice many other types of music fans as well.
The Scientific Method’s first album “Digital Nonsensical” was an attestation of this broad musical training on one hand, and love of all things that make a racket on the other. Continuing the strange evolution of Jim Hughes’ work is the upcoming EP “Fighting Sleep”, his concept album based on the “party until the sun rises, and then party some more” ethos of modern electronic and indie music fans, which is due to be released on March 31, 2012.

Hi again. You wrote to me in one of the forums about Humtoo.com. I checked it out and read most of the terms and conditions. That's when I became skeptical. I appears to me that Humtoo has a lot more to gain from the agreement than I do. Have you submitted music to the site. If so, how did it go?
Thanks for the heads up on TCC! I joined a couple weeks ago (the free membership). I was very skeptical about paying them!!! I'm interested in film composing but just getting started. At this point I'm planning to marketing music for licensing to films. I have a couple instrumentals in the Music Dissection forum if you want to check them out. I will be back to listen to your music more. I really liked the clip of Heros Redemption (played it twice). Smooth!
