"(The story behind the name Celldweller) is hard to trace back completely but I guess in 1992 sometime, I wrote a song called 'Helldweller' and my studios and even places I have lived have traditionally been in basements. In cellars, so to speak. I am also a fairly introverted guy and I hardly ever come out. It was almost a joke initially from family and friends calling me a cell dweller or a cellar dweller. It evolved into Celldweller although that name holds more significance than that. Celldweller is more symbolic of an internal bondage, being restricted and retained internally so the name has many meanings. At the end of the day, it rolls off the tongue very easily so there it is."

"Circle of Dust to me is dead. It has been dead. The only reason I ever did 'Goodbye' (as Celldweller) was because I never really officially released that (Circle of Dust version of the song) anywhere. I released it on some small compilation that I think mightíve sold a hundred copies if I remember correctly, and thatís ridiculous. So Iíve always liked that song enough that I felt like I wanted to do it. Really, Iím calling it a Celldweller track. Iím not even really nodding my head towards Circle of Dust at all."

"I can say as a generalization that conceptually Celldweller is more a reflection of an internal bondage as opposed to a physical, external one."

"I just let everybody else decide for me what Celldweller sounds like. I love electronic music. I love technology. I love aggressive guitars and bass. I love live drums. I love lush vocal melodies. I love sensual atmospheres. The list goes on. I suppose Celldweller is some amalgam of all of these and then some."

"I was leaning against the wall in front of the punk club CBGB's when I saw a few familiar faces so I said hello. Just then, Klayton jumped out of his tour mini-bus and greeted me. It was inspiring watching Celldweller in action at this favorite venue of mine. Celldweller combines elements of theater, projected video, heavy guitar and ballsy vocals with good melodies and electronic trance music. Celldweller kicked everyone's a**es at CBGB's (not that art is a competition) especially mine. These guys are totally professional and Klayton is a rock star ready to be launched into outer space."

"(The name Celldweller's) roots were derived from a few sources, but mainly is a metaphor for how I've lived my life both internally and externally. Spent most of my time alone, and into adolescence spent that alone time in my basement studio, reading manuals, making mistakes and learning from them."
