This piece has a lot of personality.
It starts out atonal, ambient, and then moves its way through classical and cinematic. What is first heard is an improvisation around a twelve-tone scale, and in even the latter section the twelve-tone scale is heard in motifs as the music starts to pull reluctantly toward a more tonal center. The twelve-tone scale in the beginning is birthed into tonality by the end. And yes this can all be interpreted metaphorically with the artwork. I’ll leave that up to you.
Inspired by the artwork of the one and only, Heartgrinder:

Thanks to floppypawss for the inspiring bass parts in which he performed on here as well.

This was quite the experience.
There are so many emotions flowing through this piece that I know not what to make of them. At first it seems like nothing but chaos, but once you dive into the piece, there is a lot to take from it.

Phonometrologist responds:

You share the same sentiments about it sounding chaotic at times with others that have left their comments about it as well.
