“Mass” is a meaning wordplay, and it all started with a book.
The album, heavily inspired by S. Hawkings’ “A Brief History of Time: From The Big Bang to Black Holes”, delves into a metaphor journey in science, the crackling sound of atoms, the crushing force of the event horizon and the hum of a collapsing star.
For his latest album Fume invites the award winning Vilnius municipality choir “Jauna Muzika” led & conducted by Vaclovas Augustinas to meet forward thinking sound design & reimagine choral music in the language of machines.
