"Visuals and emotions experienced in the writing process drive the melodies. Playing music is about pushing the creative envelope and knowing your instrument[s]. Oxygen Law uses a vast array of electronic and acoustic instruments to achieve an original, sometimes symphonic, and always dark sound."-Viir Exeter

Influences: Modern day influences: Rozz Williams, Gary Numan, Diamanda Galás, Sex Gang Children, Xymox, Sisters of Mercy, Dead Can Dance, In The Nursery, and This Mortal Coil. Classical influences: anything and everything by Lutoslawski or Rihm, works such as Orff's Carmina Burana and the Hansel and Gretel Suite, to name a few. Some inspiration also comes from visual and literary stimuli-the art of H.R. Giger, the literature of Poe, Lovecraft, the Brontës, and Baudelaire; and films by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien), and Kubrick (2001, A Clockwork Orange).
