"600 million years ago, the monopolizing grip of the algae was broken and an enormous proliferation of new lifeforms emerged, an event called the Cambrian Explosion. Life had arisen almost immediately after the origin of the Earth, which suggests that life may be an inevitable chemical process on an Earth-like planet."

Hello, person. I have a number of very old things, but none hold a candle to the marvelous trilobite in my collection. I'm overcome with awe as I hold it in my hand, knowing that it was once alive in the unimaginably distant past. It had eyes, a heart, and a brain to perceive its world. Hey, I have those things, too. The Earth back then would've seemed very alien to us. Maybe in another 200-600 million years or so some weirdo creature will hold a fossil of me and feel the same way. Anyways, thank you for listening. You're the best. You're free to download this track and use it however you wish. Chears with an a for some reason~

Albeit larger than a kilobite this sure is a fascinating audial trip and trilobite!

Atmospheric, tribal, ancient, mysterious... it has an air of adventure and discovery. But soft, and ambient-like, without perceivable threat. An evolution in comfort. A journey without edge. A calm and enveloping, canvas of ancient times...

Don't really like the turn it takes at 2:12 - feels a little anticlimactic and disappointing somehow - but it all takes you back to that world of wonder soon again.

This was amazing man. Surprisingly immersive and... dynamic. The sound never dulls, nor that sensation of wonder, worldly goodwill, the fascinating in discovering something new, or old, something untold of...

I think the description contributed a bit to that impression too. :) Well-worded.

But even with no description this'd definitely still be captivating. I wonder if I'd correlate it to the same things...


Bertn1991 responds:

What a vivid overview of the track. I like that. Happy you enjoyed it overall despite the slightly underwhelming midpoint. And thanks for reading the descriptions of course. All the hugs~

Your music is very good, but your comments exceed even that level of kindness

Bertn1991 responds:

Thank you for saying this. That's very sweet :-)

You # 1~

Love the melody in this. Great work!

Bertn1991 responds:
