J3N is an interesting creative anomaly. It took over a year to make, and went through many creative lives and phases during that time. Initially the idea was to do a Floyd-like concept album within heavier elements of sound. What developed instead, was a diverse array of sonic imagery and non-linear constructs that literally channeled itself.
BALEYYG material tends to have a dark-ambient focus, with elements of extreme Metal inter-woven within the open-ended minimalism. Among the BALEYYG releases J3N is unique in that it incorporates many of those familiar and heavier BALEYYG elements into the tableau of material within completely different ways. For this release, the lens of creativity shifted within the meta-cosmic and formless realms of creation and inspiration.
