[TC] A Theme of Ages

I began writing the drafts for this piece in 2011. It took many years of work, sweat, and tears to finish...but here it is.

I've already had it on my soundcloud and youtube channel for a while but I wanted to place it here on newgrounds.

With this piece, I wanted to create a work that expressed something very personal. The instruments are like characters, and these 20 minutes are their story.

You´re Back! :D

At first, I hated it.

It's very definitely "experimental" music. The 7:00 transition made me legitimately facepalm -- just when it finally picked a melody and got moving, it hangs itself? Until I realized this is as much story as melody.

The struggle of something to express itself? An idea shaped, reshaped, burned, buried, forgotten, rediscovered, and remade anew? I don't really know, but it makes me feel like I'm nine years old again, when I was playing with tape recorders, speakers, wires, and microphones and discovering a little truth about the 'magic'.

I listened all the way through, no mean feat at 3am on a workday, and now think it's brilliant. Even if not the sort of melody one puts on repeat to get them through the day.

Everything about this is perfect, it's epic and beautiful at the same time. Keep up your amazing work! <3
