Chronon – Music Field Theory Review

With a close attention and some knowledge albums names reveal a lot of things. So do the name of the songs. This gets more evident and blatant when the album is instrumental and there are no lyrics to help the fan understand what the band desire to deliver. Or them all can be pretty deceiving and take the fan to other reasonings as this Chronon “Music Field Theory” which gives the fan the impression to be going somewhere around the music field theory, isn’t it? Well, it’s not what the names of the songs tell us. They are much more related to science, more specifically to the Physics and Astronomy areas. So, the fan may ask if it is possible to make music with these subjects. Of course it is. Here is Chronon to prove it to us and, more precisely Rush and so many others.

“Music Field Theory” sounds a lot as its peers from the late 1980s and early 1990s, the golden age for Metal and Metal related instrumental albums. It’s well-designed and carefully thought. Each track tells a story and a theory. On second thought, the name “Music Field Theory” can be applied if we think that the songs are all about theory. Phisics theory plus music. Voilà! Take “Feynman Path Integrals,” for instance. My child of the night who has ever studied calculus will remember that integrals are related to the advanced study of variables. In this case, as Feynman says “to find the probability of something to happen (as a particle from point A to point B in a certain time), it’s necessary to consider all possible ways of that to happen (all the paths the particle may take).” Already having headaches? As a matter of fact, Math and music have intimate relations, do you know that my child of the night? Yeah, they do. It’s possible to describe music with Math models. Is it desired or better? I dont really know, however it’s possible. That’s what Chronon do here. Chronon’s music is  cerebral. It comes from the mind, not from the guts. Or how to explain songs as “The Chandrasekhar Limit” or “Kugelblitz Blackholes” to someone that doesn’t have a clue about Astrophysics? To tell you the truth I have the answer. With the songs! Already in denial, my fan? Don’t do that.

I can’t help it to say that “Music Field Theory” is a trip. A trip to the fantastic combination of music and science. A trip to the vast aspects of the universe and the laws that explain it – in Math, of course. Or easy enough, if the fan likes Steve Vay or Paul Gilbert.

Chronon “Music Field Theory” was released in November 2020 via MS Metal Records and CD Baby.
