Evidence Of Time Travel, a collaboration with Steve D'Agostino, is out in October, followed by a live AV event at the BFI in November

After posting a teaser video and some basic information last month, John Foxx has unveiled further details about his new album, Evidence Of Time Travel. It's a fully-fledged audiovisual work, a "unique sonic & visual investigation into the terrors and pleasures of temporal displacement" to be precise, and sees Foxx collaborating musically with Steve D'Agostino, with graphics created by KARBORN. The album will be released on vinyl, CD and download on October 6 via Foxx's Metamatic label, while a performance of the piece as a live film will take place at the BFI in London on November 21.

The project has its own website, which hosts KARBORN's monthly graphic volume instalments, with four of them up there already. Elsewhere on the site, notes add that the work is, "A sinister sonic architecture of drum-machine-music and analogue synthesisers. Opens with 'The Forbidden Experiment', as surveillance TV glitches and the ghostly, ripped-up multi-temporal universe of 'Evidence Of Time Travel' infiltrates the labyrinth of dark electronica. Span forty years in a moment . . . Ultimate time transfusion . . . skin crackles, a rhapsody in flames... witness images of torn, ruthless smiles through the crashed distortion; try to recall the future memory of a figure lost on a distant shore." Take a look at the teaser above, while you can pre-order the record and get hold of tickets for the film (from October 14 onwards; October 7 for BFI members) at the website.
