"The birth of Formativ was the year 2012. Jeremy Cubert (USA) had heard a track that John Beagley (UK), who had been working a little with Dave Kerzner, (CEO of Sonic Reality and who has worked with Neil Peart, Simon Collins, Phil Collins, Steve Hackett, Keith Emerson among others) had posted on Kerzners wall using some Neil Peart Drum software. Inspired, he sent John an 18min instrumental piano concerto he had created, and asked if John wanted to work on it with him. Jeremy had worked with Jon Anderson and Billy Sherwood of YES in the past. John took on vocalising and producing the track and suggested the services of Ron Wahle (Netherlands) on drums and guitars. As the track developed the need for some acoustic guitars became evident, and Jeremy linked John and Ron in with Tom Kraus (USA) (formally of Prog Band Illuvatar). Suddenly the track AETUS SUITE was completed. Knowing that something special had happened…The guys decided to work in future as a band, and Formativ was formed. Subsequent 20 min track "Outside Moving In" was created from a Ron Demo, and "Feel" from a demo John had made."
