Futexture invites the listener to experience this album in the way it was crafted; to join him in an expressive experiential experiment:
"Each of the four main tracks and its corresponding piece of visual art was created through a specific combination of ritualized meditative experiences enacted daily during the creation process. This process was guided by various elements of the natural world.
Each piece was created during a different phase of the moon during January 2013, aligned with a different cardinal direction, member of the animal, plant, and mineral kingdom, with a different element, and time of day.
Writing these tracks was an exercise in connecting and aligning with organic archetypes rooted deeply in both our physical world and intuitive mythology. By consciously interacting with these specific patterns of resonance both as symbols and physical experiences constantly during the writing process, the music and art is now inherently inseparable from them.
Sticking to a daily ritualized routine of meditation with these elements was no easier than starting any other habit cold turkey, but the personal and artistic growth that came out of this was invaluable. I hope you too find value in the experience this map provides.
All music and art is shaped to an extent by the experience of the artist. This is an experiment in directly transmuting a defined set of experiential parameters into art among multiple mediums and artists.
You are also part of this experiment. Perhaps the biggest part.

Understanding the experiences of others as if they were our own allows us to contextualize our own experiences and develop greater compassion collectively." - Futexture
