“Every Time You Target Me, I Destroy You”
-Steven Michael Daniels ™ 2014
I chose the name TexureHead_ for every reason that could possibly exist.
I’ve worked really hard for many hours (documented) building my skill sets for making music. I Came up with the name and TextureHead_ logo for all of these songs back in 2008. I hadn’t realized that the TH logo is a straightened out version of the Trilateral Commission and Young Money’s logo (I designed this logo in 2008, and even paid to have my logo trademarked in 2010, yikes!). I have no direct connection to any of these other people or organizations sharing this particular [or similar] logo (coincidence, to my knowledge). I am not affiliated with anyone, any organization, or collective on any other web pages other than those linked directly by this site that mention the name TextureHead_ or claim to have any affiliation with me, my name, or any of my internet presences.

My name is Steven Michael Daniels. I am a musician, producer, recordist, programmer, composer, arranger, performer, digital artist etc. who studied at the University of Central Florida, Florida Atlantic University, and graduated from Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida (Even though I went there specifically to learn how to engineer big modern sounds and somehow they never showed me, and I asked them to sooo many times; and upon asking a teacher about my skepticisms of the music industry he told me I was going to be Baker Acted… this was back in 2009. I guess there were more lessons I had to learn before achieving proper sound?!? I remember seeing both on powerpoint slides in class and listening to the teachers throughout my tenure at the school speak about how “the next great person to be spotlighted in the music industry as ‘that person’ is going to be deemed clinically insane. No way in hell or anywhere else could I be making that up. That is what the teachers in some classes at that school were teaching. It was as if they were buddy-buddy with the mental hospital industry. Anyways, moving on…). Before my fifth birthday I was forced to take vile pink medicine from some female ear doctor then was diagnosed with Chalestatoma, a rare disease of unnecessary tissue growth that ate away some of my middle/inner ear. The first surgery was for completely different investigative intentions, only to find that some of my ear bones had already been destroyed in the left side of my head. My parents eventually found the Silverstein Institute where my hearing was repaired, and this tissue was removed from my skull. It has taken a total of seven surgeries to fix my my ear, but thanks to the help of Dr. Seth Rosenberg and his colleagues at the Silverstein Institute, I continue to actively persevere in my music production with hearing in my left ear. For about eighteen years I had to use about twenty to forty cotton swaps to clean out gobs of putrid ear drainage/wax, every morning when I woke up, and every night before going to sleep (even though as soon as I woke up my ear had usually refilled itself). Doctor Rosenberg finally settled on a prosthesis that doesn’t cause my ear to drain horribly and disgustingly like it used to. Throughout the length of shy life, I grew up in a Christian home surrounded by music — something that never ceases to spark my curiosity for life. Years of intensive instrumental focus has led me into developed realms of: self, thought, and song. Having performed in drum corps and various drumlines, a great respect is ministered for the obvious hours (of sweat and tears) that shine through in live music. A percussionist at heart, I have spent much of my time and thought on exercising various aspects of rhythm — for example: The emotion that is captured through tonality and the specific pitch-change-increments can be very apparent even to the uneducated ear. That is why rhythm fascinated me so much… to be able to create the same power of music, simply by changing the amount of time that passes in between the occurance of two or more sound sources?!?!?………flippin’ Brilliant. ……… Oh, and by the way, if you had your head cut open multiple times and have been treated suspiciously by enough people, I bet you’d be trippy too — especially since in high school I was prescribed antibiotics for stress-induced nodular acne that put holes in my face (along with pieces of candy and other foods that kids in school gave me and I ignorantly ate because they were the only people who acted like they were my friends, so I trusted them and shouldn’t have). Most of the “friends” I have had growing up have tried to entrap me in loopholes. Also, I’m straight and Republican, always was, no matter what, and always will be. Have some guts of self-conviction guided by Jesus Christ and the discernment of humility that comes from Him — otherwise what you say is false.
Most every person I ever associated with growing up treated me like I screwed up on drugs and never tried any drugs until 10th grade, and never consistently used any drugs until I was 19 years old. In elementary school I was hit in the head with the equivalent of being struck with a baseball bat full force (and was punched and kicked plenty of other times by kids, even picked up and thrown into a thorn bush once). Luckily, that never affected my ability to learn in school. I never knew about mantra until 2011 when I was also informed that the one person I thought was my best friend was actually cursing me with mantra since about age five when he learned it from gang members that lived down the street in our old neighborhood and then my next two best friends when I grew older have done the same to me but won’t admit it (I don’t use mantra, I never used mantra except for those few months that year) and kids in my Christian school growing up used to look me in the eyes and tell me I was going to hell (at random and for no reason) even though I had been a purebred church boy my whole life while they all listened to rap music and watched Mtv, and all my inner turmoil from my youth forced me to figure “What does it matter anymore? I must be responsible for my own suffering”. Yes I can name their names. No I will not name their names unless you’re special and request to know who has tried to totally screw my life up. Many people I have spoken with the most have purposefully tried to get inside my head with contradictory information and used particular sound waves (and/or other people using those sound waves) to force my brain’s reward system to remember those thoughts more than my own thoughts that naturally wouldn’t release as many dopamines. Not only that, I have been in such torment most of my life outside of my religion that I started making all this music as a form of catharsis in hopes to find friends and to drown out the noise of total contradictory facets of my life’s experiences and interactions with non-church folk. It’s ironic that my hobby that I desired to turn into a career basically mimics every piece of science that has put my life through levels of unforgivable difficulty and mental anguish. Welcome to my life that was hell at times from people who think it’s cool to commit Human Rights Violations (thanks Obama smh). However, I still believe in the church regardless, because I have a feeling it is my name and example that has brought so much hatred from the world my way. Reporting and Judging are two seperate actions, so please learn to distinguish. Yes I am straight, no I am not a moon. Everything I wrote on this site is true. Jesus Saved Me.
