Video collaboration, here’s the blurb:



The first single, 'Your Message is Peace' is accompanied by a VR video based on the artwork for the album by
Tunes Of Negation, ‘Like The Stars Forever And Ever’.

The vinyl release features a gatefold sleeve with art by Zeke Clough. The outer cover represents an organic forest of intertwined forms, a disorientating environment unpopulated by humanity.

The inner gatefold represents a contrasting space of bright organic forms and soothing water, based on the print, ‘The Amida Falls in the Far Reaches of the Kisokaidō Road’ by Hokusai.

The video is a 3D creation of these two distinct zones as seen from the viewpoint of someone navigating these realms. Their exploration reflecting the music in an emotional journey from disorientated confusion to the peaceful sanctuary of the waterfall.

The video is a collaboration between three artists:

Commonolithic, who draws from his digital art practice using 3D scanning and VR development in spatialising Zeke’s art.

McGilchrist who calls on her multimedia art practice using VR and video installation.

Zeke Clough, who provided art and animation.

The Thing - a short story of Aspergers


‘ The Thing is a simple story poetically told by a loving mother of a 7 year old boy with High Functioning Aspergers. Written to fill the hole she had found in this very niche market, her book doesn’t teach you how to change your child. It doesn't teach the child the nature of their condition and how to survive or mask it. It isn’t about fixing anything at all...merely supporting your child to accept it and in some way embrace it as an indelible but increasingly inconsequential part of who they are. ‘
