When not scoring Broadway plays and roasting speciality coffee, he's taking on New York City's notoriously noisy subway system. Murphy wants to change the soulless beeps made by current subway turnstiles into melodic notes that harmonize and respond to the amount of traffic passing through the station.

But, Jim thinks purist Kiss fans would probably prefer to see no show than a show without the original Spaceman and Catman.
