Asymmetric Universe tease upcoming EP with new single As Within, So Without

Asymmetric Universe tease upcoming EP with new single As Within, So Without

Asymmetric Universe is an instrumental project formed in 2018 by the brothers Federico Vese and Nicolò Vese, with the goal of pushing the limit of modern prog, blending different genres coherently. Their goal is to create complex music but still accessible to the listener, ranging from modern prog metal to fusion, from avant-garde jazz to emotional ambient, along with chamber orchestration. Later that year, Gabriele Bullita joined the band as a stable drummer.

In 2019, Asymmetric Universe released their completely DIY debut EP “When Reality Disarticulates” and in 2022 they finished their second EP “The Sun Would Disappear As I Imagined All The Stars”, with the brothers handling again the whole production and composition process. This new EP features a live recorded string quartet and a winds quartet. It has been mixed by Forrester Savell and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic. The EP release is scheduled for April 28th 2023, just before Asymmetric Universe will join Ne Obliviscaris and Persefone for the first leg of the “Exul” EU/UK tour in May.

‘As Within, So Without’ is the first single from the upcoming EP and we’re happy to present an exclusive premiere of it right here.

This song is the second step of the journey represented in the EP. It’s about the internalization of the experience of the outer world, through acceptance and introspection. This interior path leads to the awareness of ourselves and of how we can actively interact with the world.

About the Author


Co-Founder of The Progspace - Dario discovered the world of Prog upon hearing "Shine on you crazy diamond" for the first time at the tender age of 12 around the turn of the millennium. Coming from a musical family and brought up with classical music, this seemed to be the logical next step. Attended the school of from 2002, delving into both directions: catching up with the history of already more than 30 years of progressive music as well as always staying up to date with the newest prog sounds. He loves meeting like-minded people and enjoying live music at a concert somewhere in Europe.
