The title "Tragedy & Geometry" is an ambiguous but subtle reference to Melpomene (Muse of Tragedy) & Polyhymnia (Muse of Geometry), or more specifically the collision/overlap of what they invoke. The opening track is also a direct reference to "Polyhymnia, Muse of Eloquence," the painting by the French artist Charles Meynier on display at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

The album is a treatise on the idea that technology is becoming more disposable as it's becoming more accessible, and how this circumstance has a more evident/direct effect on the interpersonal, i.e. relations, with others in the so-called 'Age of Information.'

What results is a gorgeous, flowing, floating world of post-kosmische musik, Steve Hauschildt's first widely available release, and his first major statement as a solo artist.
