MORE CHI

More Chi, the moniker Herman has uses for his Motion Design work, comes from his background in studying Shaolin Kung-Fu. Herman's teacher, 34th Generation Shaolin Monk, Sifu Shi Yang Ming, would scream "MORE CHI!" at the students, to inspire them while training. Herman felt a strong metaphoric connection, to his work in design and storytelling, to attempt bring that level of energy and positivity to his craft.

MUSICAL CAREER

Greg spent a good part of his early years playing music in various bands, starting with playing guitar and then eventually moving on to the drum kit.

Herman got his start musically, in Rochester, NY, playing guitar in his 1st band, called "Inertia." Inertia released a self titled Full length independently and played a lot of local shows in Rochester. He then went on to play guitar in several other Rochester bands including "Shield Your Eyes," "Valpurga," and "Kalibas."

Fascinated by drumming and inspired by the many talented drummers that Greg has played guitar with, he decided it was time to take his seat at the throne, on his 1st rock project called "Low Ton." "Low Ton" was a band that Herman was able to develop his drumming and eventually he would take his learning and apply it as a founding member of the technical mathcore band "Psyopus."

Psyopus signed to Black Market Activities in 2004 and BMA released "Ideas of Reference " This was Psyopus's debut full length album. Soon after, B.M.A was bought by Metalblade Records, Psyopus was uplifted to the major metal label, and they secured international distribution of their new B.M.A/ Metalblade record through SONY RED.

Herman toured with Psyopus in support of Ideas of Reference until the end of 2004, when he left the band to pursue a career in film and design. Drumming continues to be a hobby for Greg, but he has no plans to pursue music.
