Dark Matter

Like my first album, String Theory, this album has a scientific theme. This time I musically explore the field of "Dark Matter", a branch of cosmology that deals with the existence of an unobservable substance that permeates all of space. This "Dark Matter" is necessary for current models of the motion of galaxies to work. It also explains several observable phenomena, including gravitational lensing. This album is comprised of music mostly in the "trance" style.

Cover art by Paul Rolan Perkes
I designed the cover art inspired by the WMAP image of the background radiation of the universe left over from the big bang.

This album was released 2013-01-15.
