Venturing off course from his Post-Punk / Dark Wave project,The Soft Moon, LosAngeles born composer and multi-instrumentalist Luis Vasquez, embarks into new territory withA BodyOf Errors, a bold reimagining of the soundtrack genre.With this album, Vasquez felt the urgency to break away from The Soft Moon realm and deliver an even more intimate, self-reflecting body of work, while further unveiling inner demons & vulnerability. He continues to explore his notorious angst and visceral pain, but places them in the context of his own physical being, creating the deeply personal, yet relatable and compelling oddity that isA Body Of Errors, which Vasquez describes as a collection of themes to living in the human body. 

 Opening track “Interno” with its crushing synthesizers, is a blast off into theabyss of self. Sinister gasps introduce “Poison Mouth” stomping you withrelentless torment before spiraling into oblivion. Halfway, we reach themechanized rhythms and throbbing cardiac pulse of “Surgery” expressingVasquez’s phobia with the body itself. “No Longer Human” with its hallucinogenicflutter and distant cries, imagines a fantastic universe beyond, with a nod to David Lynch’sTwin Peaks. The only lyrical appearance onABody Of Errorsis“Used To Be” a gut-wrenching wall-of-sound ballad romanticizing the strugglebetween one’sgood side & bad side. Pulling you into armageddon, A Body Of Errors closes with “World On Fire” an epic post-apocalyptic battle-storm painted vividly through symphonic devastation.
