8x∞ is a chamber work for mixed octet with fixed eight-channel audio. The score comprises eight unique audio-video tracks which provide each musician with demonstrative prompts for their actions. All sound media heard in the concert performance has been individually pre-recorded by the eight musicians who appear live onstage; eight full takes of the score by each of the eight instruments (i.e. 64 tracks) are superimposed directly over one another.

8x∞ is about the idea of unison.
