The theme of the piece is that humans are destined to look beyond themselves. Despite current affairs and how bleak a situation may seem, it is in the spirit of humanity that keeps us from constantly looking down and strive by looking up into the stars. It is the imagery of space that I used to describe our journeys here. I even added a sound from Saturn’s radio emissions for one of the musical breakdowns. Just like an astronaut exploring unknown frontiers, music can only allow us to observe and admire the experience.

"Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that, for it and knowledge can raise man to the Divine." -Ludwig van Beethoven

What’s in the title?

If you say so! ty

Amazing, simply divine. :)

I've also recognized some of the vocals to be Russian, so that was an interesting touch. It was a very progressive track that I got lost in thought with, I was literally staring at my screen while listening to it, it had no quirks, or sudden jumps, everything molded seamlessly into each other. A brilliant piece of musical art.

Phonometrologist responds:

Thanks for leaving a review/comment. I appreciate it. Good catch on the Russian… didn’t think anyone would recognize it here. This piece always felt like a dream to me.

I like the spacious arpeggios and strings. It has a very dreamy and atmospheric vibe. The vocal samples contribute to the mood a lot, too. By around :40, I love the victorious mood, simultaneously injected with child-like wonder. I love the female vocals at around the 2-minute mark. They display such a raw sense of uplift and empowerment. Your pieces have a strong sense of continuity, yet are full of variety, and this is no exception. The strummed strings at 3:35 (and other places, I believe) are a nice touch as well. The coda was a little drawn out, but also fittingly delicate and majestic. Very dreamy, unique, and imaginative piece, my friend. Do yourself a favor and have an excellent new year. :)

Phonometrologist responds:

Than you my friend. I appreciate you letting me know your thoughts on it. I don't know what to say. It's been a while since I've written this, and so hearing it over, I hear many flaws still.
I'm contemplating your statement, "strong sense of continuity, yet are full of variety."
For which I think of now: 'tis are the days we live in.

It can be a bit more rare nowadays to come across those who create with profound things in mind. I really like this! :) Your songs are refreshing, not just for the brilliance in sound, but the foundation of intelligent thoughts they stem from. I have you bookmarked now so I can keep hearing your wonderful works in future.^^

Phonometrologist responds:

That is very kind of you to share these words. In regards to the "foundation" of thoughts and the music, there shouldn't be a difference between the two. Music is an eloquent speech, and if all music had meaning to convey to the listener, then there wouldn't be a dull moment.

Holy fuck.
I know that everyone else is leaving essay comments, but...
This is fucking amazing. I'm like honored that this is the first thing I'm commenting on on Newgrounds.
That's all I have to say.

Phonometrologist responds:

And I'm honored that you have spent the time in letting me know your thoughts about it. No essay required; the fact that others may enjoy what I myself wanted to listen to is encouraging enough.
