"Multiverse" is Gadi Sassoon’s debut immersive LP: it explores the physical equations of imaginary worlds suspended between organic and synthetic, truth and deception. This unique auditory experience is created through experimental physical models woven with modular textures and live strings; impossible digitally-modelled instruments create a soundtrack to alternate universes, while the analogue and acoustic timbres blur the line between tangible and abstract.
 The work in "Multiverse" is based on a long term collaboration between the composer and NESS (NExt generation Sound Synthesis), a research team headed by Dr. Stefan Bilbao at the University of Edinburgh. The NESS physical modelling algorithms are the backbone on which "Multiverse" has been built over the course of 2 years, where the equations have been fine tuned to create impossible instruments and acoustic phenomena. The music from "Multiverse" is currently being used for R&D and showcases in the fields of VR games, Audio AR and musical AI.
The immersive live version of "Multiverse" has been showcased at NIME 2018, Ircam, Hong Kong Sound Forms Festival and Stockholm MusicTech Fest.
