db: please describe your style, like a good friend of yours would describe it.
it is layered. the layers shift, sometimes its really pretty and
uplifting, sometimes its more dark and scary like a scary story,
like an alfred hitchcock film! sometimes its very floral and
sometimes its much cooler and reduced and abstract
