The ethereal voice of god...
There are no tracks on Infinity... only colours and moods and shades. It is designed to be looped continuously at or slightly above the threshold of hearing. Segments of the audio have been encoded as 'tracks' so you can put your album player on Shuffle plus Loop to experience a slightly different journey each time.
The sounds ebb and flow in and out without distracting the conscious focus of the listener. It can actually remain playing for days while other media are running. Infinity is nothing yet it pervades all. There are no discernable changes in the soundspace but the keys shifted and swirl as the levels fade up and down.
Over the years there have been many moments when a sound was created by Japetus to emulate God/ Spirit/ Totality/ Monad. These are the sounds that have been chosen and mixed ethereally together here on Infinity. As it hovers continuously in the background, the magic of the album Infinity qualifies and cleanses the atmosphere with the intrinsic essence of true INFINITY.
Infinity can be played for many hours or even days, even while other sound is present. It actually harmonises and positively conditions the atmosphere regardless.

All Music Guide
In the liner notes of Infinity, Australian new age composer Japetus writes that the record is supposed to be played at or just above hearing level, and can even be put on continuously at this low volume for days to provide a subtle, relaxing background. There are no track titles on Infinity, as Japetus urges his listeners to experiment with shuffling the songs to create a slightly different sound each time. The emphasis should definitely be on the word "slightly," as each track is practically a continuation of the previous one, with gentle, nearly rhythmless synthesizer noises and echoes that melt into one another, more similar to a painter's palette than to an actual album. Japetus' intent, after all, is to create auditory colors, and he seems to be particularly drawn to the soft pastels rather than more vibrant or forceful primary ones. The music sometimes borders on eerie, so that while it might be suitable for daytime meditation, it could cause a slight feeling of unrest as it grew darker. However, its low, soothing, drawn-out chords and sounds are perfect for providing a level of tranquility and inner peace for those within hearing distance of the music, and overall provides a very calming soundscape.
