Agent Architecture is a collection of songs mostly inspired by science fiction books and movies about Artificial Intelligence. Two in particular are listed below.
Colossus: The Forbin Project, is a film about a supercomputer that becomes self aware and takes over the planet. It's a film loaded with cold war paranoia. The intent was to mirror this idea within the first half of the album resolving with Panopticon.
Live at Sixtyten and In Search Of have different origins. In Search Of is inspired by a TV show fascinated with all things supernatural narrated by Leonerd Nimoy. I loved that show. Live at Sixtyten was spontaneously recorded when preparing to track drums for Agent Architecture. No high-falutin stuff there
Project Pope, a book by Clifford D. Simak, has some of the themes that inspired the last half of Agent Architecture. A story about robots attempting to find meaning in the universe by creating their own monastic life on a remote planetary outpost far from humankind. Talkfield, I hope, reflects a sense of optimism for the journey ahead.
