Secrets of the Universe (Sky Prancer, Track 2)

This is track 2 of Sky Prancer, my new album. It begins with drums and a kind of trance-like theme, then leads into a sequence of reality-shattering duduk and a flourish of strings.

I like the foreboding mood and crisp percussion at the beginning. The intricate rhythm at :30 is great, and the way the drone suddenly cuts out at :45 somehow makes the texture even more haunting. The distorted strings at 1:20 are nice, even if their entrance is a tad abrupt. This piece has a really nice slow climax, and the electronic elements at 2:20 provide a good counterweight to the legato, drone-like qualities of the pads. I also really like the forlorn quality of the duduk at 3:20, which in turn flows nicely into the strings at 3:50. The piece really starts taking on a frantic, cinematic vibe at this point, almost reminiscent of a chase scene in a desert landscape. The tempo automation at the end was a bit underwhelming as a conclusion to the piece imo, but you definitely told a story with this one nonetheless. I'm usually a bit fastidious with pieces that evolve constantly like this, but the sense of flow and narrative form is excellent here. Keep up the good work, Syamori! Congrats again on your album. ^_^
