The new album project is full of scores to infinite visualisations, so it needed some spacey synth noodlings to match. It’s the first time I’ve made a live improvised piece of music, it gives it a different feel, less precise arrangement, constant patch morphing and more flow. Something to get lost in hopefully. Myself on synths, Six Sigma on bassline, and Adam Betts on drums. I added some detailing later and the big retro snare etc, but the core synth and basslines that run throughout came from that initial jam session.
The track is called ‘Parting Ways’, and is set to a video sequence by the awesome Maxime Causeret, telling the story of creation via endless division. You’ll see the references to old video projects in there too, it was one part of the new story which overlapped with some old ones.

I’ve tried to start from a very simple element a box and make it split again and again in order to create more complex structures. It ends up to the universe splitting into multiverses that loops back to this box splitting and splitting again, in an infinite loop. As a funny fact, I often get crazy scales while zooming out, with a few unexpected bugs like min and max slope values in Houdini animation editor. I hope you will enjoy this animation. I have to thanks 2 collaborators that helps me on this project: Leslie Murard and Gratien Vernier.
