The story beyond Eōn
« EON» is an ancient Greek God associated with Time & Eternity.
The « time » represented by EON is infinite and unbounded in the sense of «ages» and «forever».
In cosmology, geology or astronomy, EON is often used in reference to a period of a billion years…
I named this project EōN, as it best defines exactly what it is â€“ an infinite musical and visual creation, which offers each individual a unique experience on its primary support as an App: on each device, and on each launch of the EōN App, you will hear and see a unique ever-evolving orchestration of the music & the visuals. EōN is a never ending, never repetitive, organic art-piece that will live & grow forever in everyoneâ€™s own singular space-time continuum, at the tip of their finger.
Here, in this limited edition box-set, I wanted to share with you two early audio snapshots that I recorded during the first tests of the music creation and one third snapshot created later on, only few days before the release of the App (on CD 2).
Personally, I truly feel that EōN is probably one of my most exciting creative projects since Oxygene. I always wanted to create a music specific for each listener and which could constantly evolve. Here it is. EōN is conceived & composed for your own eternity!
I had a very clear idea of the organic, living visuals I wanted to accompany my music creation, and I was very lucky to have spent some time in Tokyo at Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc (Sony CSL) where I found Alexis André and his singular visual world. Sony CSL with Alexis have conceived and developed an algorithm generating the endless flow of ever-evolving graphics, which like the music is never ending, nor repetitive. All the illustrations included in this box are visual snapshots of Alexis' creative graphic work.
The algorithm and audio engine that orchestrate the music of the EōN App have been engineered by Alexis Zbik & Vianney Apreleff from BLEASS after we defined the rules of the system together.
