This is the first track to my debut album, "Espers". It was inspired by a lot of ambient compositions from Progressive Rock artists like Pink Floyd, Genesis, Steve Hackett and then some. It was also inspired by compositions from Yasunori Mitsuda, Motoi Sakuraba and the Metroid Prime games.
Tritochiark was designed to be a multi-arc, dreamy kind of composition taking you through a mystic, alien world that evolves and becomes darker as the dream goes on until the proverbial alarm chime brings you back to serenity; before you then drift back off into the dream.
About the album: Espers is a wildly ambitious, slightly experimental and thoroughly, deliberately arranged and manipulated chill-out album with lots of New Age, Ambient, Progressive and apparently Darkwave sounds and structures in them. Each track is designed to be a completely different experience than the one before and after it; where the soundscapes create sparse melodies and evolve the track instead of it moving until finally culminating to a 10 minute piano solo, performed by Michael Huang of www.nobuouematsu.com
, as a stark contrast to the album before it. This album and all the many sounds and motifs and designs were inspired by Peter Gabriel, Motoi Sakuraba, Yasunori Mitsuda, Uematsu, Hiroki Kikuta, Berlin School electronic music, Steve Hackett, Enya, David Arkenstone, NIN, Moby and a lot more. It was released in September 2011 by Lightfall/Aardvark Records.
The updated remaster was released in December 2012 by Dope Records. It was remastered by TOKEE of Dope Records.
