Arc Lumina – In Ephemera

“things that exist or are used or enjoyed for only a short time”

This is my first release as Arc Lumina on a Website Releases album, yipee. I quickly came up with the melodies for this piece by playing around, using my past experience as a wind instrument player to compose a track for a singular instrument. It’s a refreshing change of pace after all the video game metal, and a little throwback to my first primary instrument of choice.

The melodies came organically, with a vision of some sort of endless travel — at the same time acknowledging the fleeting nature of a lived life. It follows an ABCBD kind of structure, each part being distinct, and it should be noticeable when you can hear me trying hard to make everything transition into each other smoothly (it was worth a shot). It’s just an amalgamation of whatever influences happened to be in my head as I was making it, and I can at least say for sure there’s some baroque in it.

I’m not sure what else to make of this song. Maybe just try to feel it and understand it in your own way.
