Out of the blue, I have the passions for music again. Chemo sucks, it drains your health, both physical and emotional. Suddenly, my motivation for music return to urge me to make something. Something awesome, and extremely epic.

The Paris attack, mass shooting in LA, the climate change summit, conflict and ongoing genocide have given me strange need to write something, just to protest and scream out loud against this fucked-up world. Partly, I don't want my friends and fans miss my music. Let's say this is an unofficial way to celebrate the 500 mark. Thanks to everyone who supported and are supporting me.

This song is the next level, I broke free from the restrictive and repetitive cinematic/epic type of music, and create something with my own voice. Despise the difficulty I have in life right now, I still want to put something new and unusual out here. I love NG, and I missed it so much during my time of absence.

Like always, this song is public domain, use in all your remix, sampling, cover, game/movie/art. And like the rest of my stuff, this will stay forever free. Writing free music doesn't mean your music quality is bad (look at Kevin MacLeod).

I will upload a separate version without the orchestra.

Good day my friends.

Holy shit thank you for all the reviews. respect! :D

I am making a videogame (I could email you if you want the details about the game), and i was wondering if i could use this track in a really heavy part of the story, but call it "Shaping the Present"
Are you ok with that?

sick track dude!! Definitely has a dystopian, futuristic feel to it. Well sequenced, well varied, well mixed (balanced panning, sounded full), and packed diverse electronic patterns that nicely set up an atmosphere for the orchestral choir sounds and cello line (and later on the marcato strings riff). My only criticism would be that the cello comes on a bit too strong, taking away from the ambient backing a bit. The cello line is very nice though, a cool melody with good usage of articulations. I like your usage of the tritone in this piece between transitioning.

Nice glitched percussive bits. The synth lines also add a nice layer of rhythmic goodiness. I also liked the processed, electronic guitar lines, would like to hear more!

I'm thinking a crescendo-ing crowd scream would sound nice at 3:15, with it being filtered behind the instrumentation in the next portion?? Would create a nice padding I think.

The ending and introduction of the song match each other near perfectly (I think all tracks should loop by default even if they are truly songs- as was the case in the last version of the audio player!)

great EPIC song ;)

This is some of your classic writing here...stylistically I mean. And Mattashi is right about your mixing. You always were so good with your rhythmic textures, and with your melodic lines being carried by that makes this quite an enjoyable experience.

Thank you very much for your review! :)

Happy New Year, and I'm very glad to see you around.

Awesome work Dem0 :) my favorite part is at 01:22 I love those choirs along with the strings.
Your mixes seem to sound better by every new song you upload.
love it
