"We already have a long time partnership with Maxim Zhestkov, which allowed us to achieve new standards to our work. The projects always pushed for something new. Now with „Perpetual Path“ we had the same challenge, but this time we wanted something more. Teaming up Combustion with Icaro Ferre, we started developing proper instruments with Max/MSP to use in the project. It also brought us new ideas that will become new software for future projects.
The visuals from "Perpetual Path“ gave us some possibilities to explore random process also with Reaktor patches, to create new textures to sync with the flashing lights and such." / Combustion.studio
