Universum - Full Album

Share

Author Comments

Universum is a loose chronology of the universe, expressed through a hybrid of orchestral and electronic music. From ambient atmosphere to symphonic song to percussive pulse, Universum is an intense journey from theoretical beginning to theoretical end.


This album is also a love letter to the Newgrounds Audio Portal. Thank you all.

01 Formless


Everything and everywhen

Unbound by there or then


02 Important Matters


Cosmic inflation takes its course

Isolating particle from force


03 Obscurant Transparent


Activity and expansion slow

Gas free-floating without glow


04 Astrogen


From star to galaxy to cluster

They shine with all they can muster


05 Propel Repel


A mysterious energy through circumstance

Dominates and rejuvenates the expanse


06 Collapse Destroy Rebuild


A Sun's formation and gravity

Create a swirl of rock and debris


07 Revolutionary Phenotypes


Through selection and intermediary strife

A planet witnesses the birth and death of life


08 Influx Engulf


An old giant and its terrestrial friend

Reunite in a violent end


09 Rearranged Modern


Three galaxies pull together in an uproar

Merge and luminesce more brightly than before


10 Diamond Glints


The dawn of a dim era as they evolve

Far-reaching filaments begin to dissolve


11 Sonatina for the Last Ones


When all the stars are burnt and gone

Their dark descendants carry on

But they too ultimately meet their destined downfall

Whispering and withering till they are nothing at all

And nothing is everything after all

Would love to make a geometry dash level to this, sadly too long. (Ironically I wanted to make the longest GD level ever lol) Still a fantastic piece and very soothing whilst maintaining a feeling of mystery and wonder. This is the PERFECT example of how I'd say the universe would be if it was music.

anthonyragus responds:

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. Just curious, does GD have a time limit? I could release a standalone piece from this album upon request. Feel free to message me.

Perfect description of the universe without any use of words, too bad the songs not allowed for use in Geometry Dash, I'd attempt to get the world record for longest level made.

anthonyragus responds:

Just changed that to allow for external API use, so go geometrically crazy if you want! And thank you for the kind words!

Should I comment on something?! It's just euphoria! This is something beyond human understanding, something incredible, delightful, something that brings me to aesthetic delight! Keep it up ! You make great music! 11/10

anthonyragus responds:

Thanks man! You're too kind
