about

The Proceedings of Dr. Ké is inspired by the essays and fiction of experimental psychologist Dr. Charles Poncé on what he termed “Blade Runner Psychology”, as well as the mythical figure in Dr. Poncé’s fiction known as Dr. Ké. His writings straddle the fence between science and science fiction expanding Jungian psychology into the modern world by intimating futurist elements backed by hard medical science. It’s these elements that define the parameters of Romus' Compositions, which are meant to be invoking of both the futurist theme of Dr. Ponce’s work as well as his mystic interpretations of the words set to music.
Glenn Astarita, from All About Jazz says of Romus’ work with the Lords of Outland, "Romus' fiery romp is a no-holds barred exposition. He slices through steel with accuracy and ease, equating to a jovial soundscape, scraped with intensifying solos and Everett's colorific cymbals hits. They galvanize your neural system from start to finish, while projecting a take no prisoners approach throughout."
