Just watching everyone in Germany today... On TV tomorrow morning on ZDF Volle Kanne
When I received the Stephen-Hawking-Medal last year, Professor Hawking shared with me that he believed that there will come a time when we will have to leave Earth for another planet, if we want to survive. I like the idea of us becoming gypsies of time and space, moving somewhere else in order to survive, just leaving some audio information behind us on our way to find a place to live better nights and days, on our way to find ‘Equinoxe Infinity’.
I started this piece with quite a simple idea. I had in mind the image of travelling on an endless road. This journey could last an entire life. It also conveys the simple idea of being able to leave the past behind in order to build the future, having learnt from the past. Once you gained knowledge from the past, you can look into the future, you don’t need to look back.
This is INFINITY the very last track to be pre-released before EQUINOXE INFINITY will be released next Friday. With INFINITY I wanted to create a bridge, a connection with the first ‘Equinoxe' album with a piece of music that is rather joyful, just like 'Equinoxe Part 5' was. It’s easy to be dark, I always thought it is always more difficult to create joyful music which had a certain kind of hidden melancholy attached to it. Parts of the first 'Equinoxe' album were like that. When I worked on this piece of music, I was thinking about these timeless Watchers looking at us in a virtual reality environment, us trying to survive in a hectic VR game with no real beginning and no real end, trapped in a world of "infinity“.
Unboxing the EQUINOXE PROJECT Boxset. The concept around it was to make it a visual experience. Including many of the incredible watcher designs by Filip Hodas and combining the two worlds of EQUINOXE and EQUINOXE INFINITY. It includes both albums as Vinyl Replica CDs, both albums on 180g Vinyl, a Scratchcard to download both albums as WAVs and four Posters. It´s manufactured in a limited run, so pre-order fast.
In Brussels for promo. Soundcheck for the listening session tonight going well. Looking forward to seeing you there.
