Love vs Gravity began as a cassette collection of some of Peter's experimental work that had been assembled over a period of the early years of his association with Meaningful Eye Contact. In early 1990, Philip Mortlock at Warner Elektra Atlantic heard the tracks and championed a CD release. Many of the pieces have heritage in MEC projects: The Forge was written for an MEC showreel; Follow Your Heart was a revamped version of a section of the soundtrack from Spineless, a short film.
The album cover artwork for the CD was painted and collaged by Sydney artist Nick Stathopoulos. The sleeve was designed by Sean Callinan.
