The most comprehensive project I have done in my life time. Unlike previous works where my short attention span could not grow beyond laziness, this project was done with the utter most attention of details. I can firmly say that this track has more glitches and stutters than Somnambulis by BT. Of course, I cheated with software like Output Movement and NI plugins like Replika and Molekular. Over 400 patterns were made in the work.

The unique factor in this track isn't lied in the glitch and stutter. It's how organic they blended together. The point is to present the effects without drowning everything else. It's a complete symphony of sounds. Shaped with all the skills and techniques I had learned over a decade of music production.

Maybe it's a joke why I used so many plugins and libraries, but when you went for details, sounds are different for each plugins. I don't own massive hardware so all I have is a laptop.

Children of the Circuit referred to the post-modernism and cyberpunk era we are entering right this moment. Dystopian and late-stage capitalism, deadly commodity and devastating consumerism. The generations that come to face this will suffer, by the exploitation and consequence that we left behind. And yet, we escaped our reality into technology, ignoring the suffering that coming to us all.

This track is also a debut for my album Ground Zero, post-modern theme that dedicated as charity to a friend who's in critical need. All payment from the album will go directly to her.

Inspiration from Solar Fields music. And from the legendary demoscene musicians jco, gloom, ronny, Tineidae, Gargaj, kb, aMusic and wayfinder.

I said I'd write a review later because I felt like leaving a more proper one, but it has been a while now, and I've been listening to the piece more than I have been writing :)
So I wanted to leave a few words her before I completely forget.
1:51 is soo cool o.O

And after minutes upon minutes of awesome music, the end segments are quite epic!
So many genres included here too :V

I wish I could make something like this :O
The loop is mostly smooth too :)

Actually, the whole track is just so full of super cool effects. And sounds, and even melodies + progressions. The transitions are very effective, and this piece NEVER gets boring.

Seriously, you're incredible for creating such wonderous compositions, so rapidly. This one especially, is a beast to say the least! (#DankRhymes)

Keep it up!!!

The whole track's theme is about escapism in post-modern society, and we all are living in it. My life, your life, Yuki's life, Jordi's, Mattashi's, Soundchris'... we are all being consumed by it every second, until we are sunk into it so deep that escapism becomes our reality. And we seek for music as a way to escape suffering in the real world. We create our own worlds. The world that cannot be destroy, maybe even after we leave this world.

This is the reason why I prefer to explore music in a unique way, and avoiding to restrain my own exploration upon certain genre or style.

I have to be honest with you. I am tired of this life. Tired of running, hiding, being shamed, being looked down like an animal, being there to always suffer. I wish I had a great life, so I could stop worrying about what time that I gonna line up at food bank for canned corns, or where to bathe at 1 AM. I'm mostly tired of being alone. I can't be myself. I wish.

It's a good thing that I have leukemia. Maybe it's not going to hurt if time come. I hope.

Wow, that was amazing. I really love that part at 1:15 with the Unison guitar bends and those percussions were sweet!
Keep it up!

Wha... how am I supposed to even comment on this? I'm gonna have to write a poem or Vulcan mind meld to properly convey a response to your song. How dare you. Encore!!! :)
