Origin

yonvolt · Origin

Submission for Novatone's monthly community album series, Orbit, with the theme of "Psytrance" for the month in question. Blends the genres of Psycore/Hi-Tek and Techcore, drawing particular inspiration from Japanese projects such as MEGAREX's Techcore Evangelix.

Skyiron

Composed for a game of the same name. This track utilizes situational audio mixing to affect the music in real-time according to how you play the game. An approximation is embedded here, to fully experience the song as intended you may download and play the game by clicking here.

Dianoetic

Nu-Jazz composition in the style of the album ERGOSPHERE by Darius. Utilizes polyrhythms and regular key- and metric-modulations represent the feeling of ideas running through the listener's head.

Third Eye

Concept album using a wide variety of musical styles and techniques to explore the ideas of introspection, being in nature, and the apparent connection between the two in culture.

Alchemist

Track capturing the image of NIJISANJI streamer Ange Katrina, sampling her voice and compiling collaborators for a chanted "gang" vocal. It utilizes aggressive Psycore elements and ascending melodic lines to represent both Ange's cool impression and her more cheerful demeanor.

Vile

First place winner for Novatone's 2020 Obscure Genre Challenge by community vote, where I was tasked with composing the obscure genre "Skullstep". One bass synth used is a heavily edited sample of NIJISANJI streamer Era Otogibara.

Hibernal

A take on the idea of a Christmas song, strictly using traditional instrument sample libraries. Heavy inspiration from anime and visual-novel soundtracks.
