universe explosion is a zoomed out timeline of the universe, from big bang to heat death.
three tracks represent multiple geminations from a singular abstraction. initially meant to become an ensemble piece with electronic accompaniment, these two components, [a] and [b], grew apart until they became autonomous accounts.
the third track was rescued from the verge of a crashed computer as i was building sounds for [b]. i included it because it felt like a mass of energy waiting to burst, which was a part of the universe's timeline uncovered by universe explosion's narrative.
