The Theory of You (2016)

This is a project combining my interest in science and music and connecting with friends and it is about you. The music integrates contributions by 23 musicians from 3 countries spanning from traditional to classical to electronic. The lyrics connect concepts of modern physics with ideas about the development of human life. Singularity - Gravity - Superposition - Relativity - Entropy - Probability - Evolution - Language - History - Technology - Subjectivity. The duration of each part was predetermined so to form an asymmetrical mirror image of the quantum and the human world.
