These are all the tracks that I composed for the soundtrack to "Athene's Theory of Everything". Some of the material was used, some of it wasn't, but this is the collection of everything I recorded and programmed.
I'd like to thank both Athene (Chiren) and Reese (Reese), from the bottom of my heart, for giving me the opportunity to work with them on such a brilliant and forward thinking project. It's been a dream of mine to compose music for something that I honestly and truly believed in, and they've definitely made that come true.
The exposure that's come from this documentary and my work with them has been absolutely priceless, and I thank them for that as well.
This is my first stab at an almost completely ambient body of work. I've spent a great deal of time listening to ambient and minimal electronic music over the years, especially names like Aphex Twin and Plastikman. I've always wanted an excuse to participate in that realm of electronic music - and what better way than to do a score for a documentary about neuroscience.
This entire body of work is dedicated to Athene and especially Reese for the superb level of communication and the sincerely good vibes that came from the entire project. I've been spoiled by them on this project and I'll remember it always.
