The story beyond Eōn
Â« EON Â» is an ancient Greek God associated with Time & Eternity.
The Â« time Â» represented by EON is infinite and unbounded in the sense of Â«agesÂ» and Â«foreverÂ».
In cosmology, geology or astronomy, EON is often used in reference to a period of a billion yearsâ€¦
I named this project EōŒN, 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 EōŒN App, you will hear and see a unique ever-evolving orchestration of the music & the visuals. EōŒN 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 EōŒN 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. EōŒN 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 AndrÃ© 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 Alexisâ€™ creative graphic work.
The algorithm and audio engine that orchestrate the music of the EōŒN App have been engineered by Alexis Zbik & Vianney Apreleff from BLEASS after we defined the rules of the system together.
