Unearthing knowledge of what truly lies in the unknown is breathtaking, but also terrifying – a realisation of what must be done. Wavering ambient synth and strings morph into a realised version of the Monomyth main theme on solo cello, ending with a quiet, serene theme, reflecting a greater understanding of the universe.

Leaving your home in pursuit of the unknown is harrowing, and painful. But it is also empowering. Melancholy strings build with synths and percussion, driving ever higher until the protagonist crosses the precipice – a first flight into the unknown. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
The unknown is strange and bewildering, but also lonely, and we are reminded of the things we left behind, and the long road that lies ahead of us. Slow, ambient strings and synths provide a starry background for some brooding solo cello. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
The protagonist is truly tested for the first time. The darkness enters, and the threat is real. Driving, menacing synth and strings slowly build towards a dramatic, epic drop, ending unresolved. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
When we face the hardest of trials, we find out who we really are. The protagonist fights to overcome, and realises the strength within them. Epic, driving action, ending on a heroic rendition of the main theme. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
