Visual artist and musician Neal Calvin Peterson announced the launch of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to support Duality, the first in a series of experimental albums and conceptual artwork that merges science, religion and philosophy.
Duality is a different type of album in the way that its title track “Duality,” can be split into two individual songs — ”Life” and “Death.” These two songs can be experienced separately, or can be played at the exact same time.
This will be the first in a series of experimental albums from Infinite Religions, a project by Peterson, who graduated from ETSU in 2013. The Infinite Religions series was inspired by mankind’s search for truth, and will cover topics related to our existence.
“I love experimenting in the spaces between art and music,” said Peterson. “I feel the same way about the spaces between life and death. Whether you believe in an afterlife, reincarnation, or none of the above, we can all agree that there’s a great amount of mystery as to why we’re here.”
Duality will be a limited-edition release of 99 vinyl record albums individually signed and numbered with handwritten lyrics. A digital release of the music will also be available.
In addition to the music, a multi-piece artwork was created as a visual counterpart. This piece was photographed for use as the album cover and has since been deconstructed into a collection of five individual works of art.
Peterson is seeking funding for the final production elements of the album, which is slated to debut in late 2013.
