Chicago-based artist of1000faces presents his new album ‘The Infinity Line’, previewed by the title track. The clever new video was created by film director Patrick Buhr. This long-play is the second in his expansive instrumental ‘Monomyyth’ trilogy, following his ‘Astronomica’ album.
of1000faces is the solo project of Matt Walker, a renowned drummer and producer who has worked with some of alternative music’s most iconic artists. For 25 years, he has toured and recorded with Morrissey, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage and Filter, all the while dedicating himself to myriad side projects, independent bands and film/tv work.
Known for his obsessive writing and recording while on tour, Walker eventually decided to pursue a more singular and personal endeavor. Thus was born of1000faces, the moniker reflecting the project’s inherent premise and, at the same time, a nod to Joseph Campbell’s ‘Hero of 1000 faces’.
The Infinity Line is an eclectic instrumental album with ambient DNA, but is far less passive than its predecessor. The dynamic scope has been widened and the general mood is darker and more evocative.
Tracks will be featured on Overflow 47 and Aural Delights 423
