Right now, the Prism and Bronze are in their early stages and heavily simplified. Jaar's next Prism project will be a matte, dark cube, while Bronze changes songs on Gold's album in far more radical ways than the relatively subtle alterations of "Flesh Freeze." They are both struck by each other's ideas as well, with Gold mulling over the idea of a physical Bronze object and an excited Jaar asserting that "the idea of a closed-system cube that has eternal permutations is totally the idea."

These possibilities—and many, many more—lend credence to the idea that Jaar and Gold are sowing the seeds of future shifts in listening habits. It's notable, too, that emerging artists, with a great deal more at stake, are taking the reins. "Well, it has to be," shrugs Jaar. "We have that hunger."
