Sean is currently leading the band Human Interference Task Force:
The recurring subject of Human Interference Task Force's first album is in its title. Via a series of narratives about characters dealing with crises of faith, Sean Norris, the writer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer at the centre of H.I.T.F., cautiously wonders whether we might find "A More Meaningful Life (Than One That Acknowledges Reality)" if we began to allow our judgment to be guided by faith, however misplaced it may be. Formerly an experimental electronic musician, this new project sees Sean employing a rock band instrumentation, drawing on influences ranging from pop-punk band My Chemical Romance to the noise rock of Daughters, to tell stories about acolytes in the thrall of neo-spiritual conspiracy theories, lizard people tearing out their eyes, and romantic martyrs of the flat-earth movement. Sean wrote, recorded, and produced the music over the course of the COVID-19 lockdowns, and therefore drew upon samples of religious fervour during that time, like televangelist Kenneth Copeland's judgement of COVID-19, as well as the Twitch sermons of Matt Christman, co-host of the podcast "Chapo Traphouse." "A More Meaningful Life (Than One That Acknowledges Reality)" is available on Bandcamp and all streaming platforms.
