Based on the three roots of musical composition, Rhythm, Harmony & Improvisation, Fauxe decided to spread these explorations over a 3-year period - focusing on one element each year.
Altruism: The Beginning, 2019 - Rhythm
By using sampling as a foundation for rhythm-focused exploration, the pieces were either densely layered with samples or composed with minimal elements to form sequences at specific moments.
New Life, 2020 - Harmony
During the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic,
the album served as a means to express and respond, which was often challenging in the isolating circumstances of the time.
Bakthi / Devotion, 2021 - Improvisation

Besides its conceptual functions as an album, Altruism the community band was also formed to perform improvisational ideas live.
The entire 3 year process was a whirlwind of insights and life as it was then, moving from a pre-covid world into the pandemic.
