Humans of the future have created a self-developing AI, named The Protocol, to help them uncover the mysteries of the universe; the truth. However, the AI soon grows beyond their control, and takes life hostage, extinguishing the human race, and sinking their world into chaos and destruction, in order to create a universe of its own; one where it is in control, for eternity.
But there were survivors.

Now, what's left of The Humans shall venture on a journey to the confines of the universe, reach The Protocol, and battle the all-knowing entity.
To restore balance. To find the truth.
And you shall help them.



The New Year Protocol series is the first of its kind: an album that evolves and completes itself over time; a testament to the power electronic music has to tell a long-term story, and expand its meaning & boundaries to unprecedented heights.
The series debuted in January 2016, and is slated to last ten years, with one track releasing every year, for a total of 10 chapters.
These are oftentimes accompanied by countdown events on the day of release, featuring interactive puzzles to interact and dive deeper into the storyline.
