Yes, I changed my name. Yes, I know it's risky. I just feel the music has taken on a new identity lately and it was time for a change. Now, onward as ativandal...
i am migi.
ativandal (formerly too long sparks) is the title of my solitary musical venture.
my band mates are little blinking boxes of plastic, metal and wire.
i write dark pop songs, animating them with found sounds, looping guitars, ukuleles, synth and voice.
portland, oregon is my home.
