Inspired by Bruce's struggle with hearing loss, Monophonic takes the listener on an emotional roller coaster. In 2005, doctors discovered a destructive cyst called a cholesteatoma growing inside Bruce's left ear. After surgical removal of the cyst and reconstruction of his ear, he was left with severe hearing loss, tinnitus, and reoccurring ear pain. These emotional experiences were translated into the music and artwork that make up Monophonic.
