I honestly can't come up with a better description than Christian's! Prepare your body for an awesome prog experience!

"The Internal Movement Echoes is a single 42 minute composition separated into 12 movements. It is based on a concept of time being internal by the perception of the individual. There are many themes within the instrumental of the music that involve variations of time concepts such as time repeating itself the non-linear concept of time, as well as the forward  progression that we use time to measure our existence and events throughout history".
