Raised between the soaring peaks of the Swiss Alps and the dark industrialism of northern England, beauty and darkness have been twin influences on Satis’ creativity since his youth. Throughout his life he has expressed this through music, art and literature, delving deep into the darkest parts of human nature, and finding the elegance therein.
These themes are central to his two current projects: The Redemption of Erâth and A Gothic Symphony. Though the two tales are far removed from each other (The Redemption of Erâth is a dark fantasy; A Gothic Symphony is gritty, contemporary fiction), they are both tales of the bitter struggle against darkness and despair, and an acknowledgement that there are some things the mind cannot overcome.
Written from a depth of personal experience, Satis’ words are touching and powerful, hallmarks of someone who has walked alone through the night, and welcomes the final darkness of the soul.
However, for now he lives in New Jersey with his wife and nine-year-old son.
