Not long ago electronic music and trance pioneer Paul van Dyk revealed the release of his new album and first LP in almost three years, ‘From Then On' — prior to the release he'll be debuting his new live show ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ in New York City on September 23rd.
His new album ‘From Then On' is said to have been written from a shift in perspective in Paul's life while recovering from his near-death accident earlier in 2016. Paul has taken newfound appreciation for the small things in life, such as a walk through Central Park and channeled these experiences into his music. It's Paul’s most personal work to date while re-affirming his love and enthusiasm for trance.
AEON is an ancient theological word that roughly translates to ‘life & vitality’ – the over-arching themes behind both the new show concept and album.
Paul's new live show is a continuation of his long history of experimenting with live performance. While his performance set-up has always been geared towards live, improvising and composing on stage, for AEON he’ll be joined on stage by two keyboardists.
‘I am incredibly excited to introduce ‘AEON by Paul van Dyk’ to my fans. Music has a distinct ability to take people away from their problems and relieve anxiety and stress, and this is the feeling we are trying to enhance with this new show concept. This intensified experience of sights, sounds and sensations will be our next level of entertainment. Paired with music of my upcoming album ‘From Then On’, it’s going to be a celebration of trance, life and unity.’
