Technology and Electronic Music can convey a lot of romance and a lot of poetic elements.
The difference between songs with lyrics and instrumental music, is that instrumental music actually invites itself very well into the mind of the listener as it is not telling you a specific story.
The listener can imagine his own story, his own movie in his mind when he listens to instrumental music.
The listener's own creativity is very much welcome.
In this movement of the album, the music is carried by the wind travelling through some chaotic aquatic sounds on an imaginary path from left to right.
Where is it coming from and where is it going?
If the wind could speak.

Machines are observing us and are learning random information about us humans, the remains of our history, of our obsolete technology, language and dreams...
For which purpose?
We don’t know yet.
I've signed a test pressing of Equinoxe and one of you, who pre-ordered the album, will win it.

One reason why I love instrumental music so much, it is the soundtrack of the story you can create in your mind.
Ludwig is one of the 2 or 3 most important musicians of all time.

Robots Don´t Cry is the track I get asked about most in Interviews.
It really seems to leave an impression on people.
So I wanted to make sure you also get to listen to it sooner rather than later.
Here it is.

First composed this track for this album, before I played it at the Coachella Festival in the summer of 2018: I thought that this piece would be a great opening-track for my festival-appearance and for my US-tour.
Actually, that led me to work on the live-version before I recorded the studio-version with a different approach.
So, both pieces are related to each other, but they are not exactly the same.
For the studio album I went back to my original idea, which is kind of a momentum where a huge gate is opening onto something & somewhere else - Watchers opening doors onto virgin territories, the future being virgin territory for us.
'The Opening', was never meant to be the opening for the album but more as a passage to a next stage.

This is INFINITY the very last track to be pre-released before EQUINOXE INFINITY will be released next Friday.
With INFINITY I wanted to create a bridge, a connection with the first ‘Equinoxe' album with a piece of music that is rather joyful, just like 'Equinoxe Part 5' was.
It’s easy to be dark, I always thought it is always more difficult to create joyful music which had a certain kind of hidden melancholy attached to it.
Parts of the first 'Equinoxe' album were like that.
When I worked on this piece of music, I was thinking about these timeless Watchers looking at us in a virtual reality environment, us trying to survive in a hectic VR game with no real beginning and no real end, trapped in a world of "infinity“.

I started this piece with quite a simple idea.
I had in mind the image of travelling on an endless road.
This journey could last an entire life.
It also conveys the simple idea of being able to leave the past behind in order to build the future, having learnt from the past.
Once you gained knowledge from the past, you can look into the future, you don’t need to look back.

When I received the Stephen-Hawking-Medal last year, Professor Hawking shared with me that he believed that there will come a time when we will have to leave Earth for another planet, if we want to survive.
I like the idea of us becoming gypsies of time and space, moving somewhere else in order to survive, just leaving some audio information behind us on our way to find a place to live better nights and days, on our way to find ‘Equinoxe Infinity’.

Tomorrow to the date 40 years ago EQUINOXE was released.
The rest is history....
I used the Watchers and what might have become of them as an inspiration to EQUINOXE INFINITIY.
I think Filip Hodas did a fantastic job in creating the two worlds I saw for the music of the album.
This is a little throw back to 1979 to the beginning of the EQUINOXE story.
