Our lives have their own excitement, and they help us see the beyond the mundane and reach for the stars. The Monomyth main theme gets its first dramatic airing, with full orchestral and driving percussion & electronics, but dropping away to a sobering reminder of the protagonist’s place in the universe. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
Family. Duty. The things that keep us grounded, what keep us from giving up on our hopes, but what also holds us back from stepping across the precipice into the unknown. Ambient, effected piano and synth create a thoughtful, slightly melancholy atmosphere. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
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. Part of the ‘Monomyth’ album project.
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.
