This album includes all the music heard in the iOS game "Tears of the Machine: Episode 01" by X App Studio Group, which I composed over the course of six months starting from October 2014. Renewed special thanks to X App for the great opportunity we've been riding, and many thanks to every single listener and supporter for their boundless interest and affection.

Fantastic work! Totally inspiring!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it <3

I'm really loving the sc-fi vibe I get from this track. I got this picture in my head of someone trying to escape from a derelict factory-esk or experimental laboratory style environment, before he's finally cornered at the end of a dark alleyway. You always do such a fantastic job at setting a scene with your cinematic works, I really love that. I'm no real critic when it comes to audio and mixing and all that jazz, but as a creator who's always looking for music to include in work I truly enjoyed listening to this track and conceptualising with it. Great stuff!

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thanks for your in-depth imagery, I love that! And funnily enough, that scenario you pictured is pretty much what makes the Prologue chapter from the same series :D
I hope you enjoy the rest of the album as well!

the 1st (1.15mins) im loving !!
after that the switch it sounds like jesper kyd
well made
good too make an extended version of the beginning part too.. maybe ..?

ForgottenDawn responds:

Thanks! Well, they're basically three separate loops snitched together in one track since they belong to the same level in-game. These loops basically play during different moments in the gameplay, so that's why the first loop is relatively shorter than the other two, because it isn't supposed to play for long. If you wanna hear more then... try the game? :')
And wow, Jesper Kyd? Aw man. <3
