New single: The Butterfly Effect
“The Butterfly Effect” is the title of my third single, released as a precursor to my upcoming album Fractal Zoom, released on May 22, 2022. Like the other tracks from the album, the music is inspired by mathematical theories, each with its own special properties. "The Butterfly Effect" is a so-called chaos theory, and by chaos is meant in the world of mathematics - unpredictability. Edward Lorenz worked with models of wind systems, and pointed out that despite a lot of data and calculations, one could not predict a particular result. The mathematical systems were changed beyond recognition by just a few changes in the initial state.
I see this as a metaphor for the fact, that much in life is like the wind blowing - it can end completely unpredictably in a few coincidences, where small variations accumulate a development can end far from what was planned.I feel that is thoughtful and inspiring, - and I have translated that feeling with a calm, evocative piece of music, where you take a step back and look at the coincidences of life from a distance. Sometimes we have to acknowledge that we can observe more than influence.
