The Opening Theme

The Opening Theme

Many people are stuck in a game. Dissatisfaction with life is not a phase that will pass, but a permanent state. Get to know the game that acts on you and then wake up. Know thyself.

On this track the presentation of The Game On You environment begins, where you can see synthesizers play alongside the orchestra.

Human Project

Human Project

We are creating a being. We are not our mind, but our mind is the only one that dies and it wants to have a life of its own.

Why Universe

Why Universe

The void is the space between our false self and our true self, so the void is impossible to fill when we are far from who we really are. We are not our mind, and our mind creates countless characters of ourselves to escape pain.

Irony of Fate front

Irony Of Fate

If you have a destination then you are not free, but you don’t have to worry about having a destination or knowing its purpose, after all, if you have a destination you will reach the destination one way or another. But if you don’t have a destiny then you are free.

Get Ready! front

Get Ready

How are you feeling? Are you ready to face your self-imposed destiny? Can you feel the anxiety? But isn’t what imposed on you things of society? Ideas formed before you were born want you: Get ready!

Adventures Machine

Adventures Machine

Our mind, our amusement park, our Adventure Machine. Nothing is done without imagination. There is no desire without our mind having first imagined it.

The track Adventures Machine brings the magic of games into a dance hit with many classic game sounds, reminiscent of a nostalgic magical adventure.

The Game On You

The Game On You

Every day we put ourselves on trial and put our performance to the test. So some days we win and some days we lose. The search is incessant, it is infinite, and this distance between what we seek and what we are is called VOID. Every day we show ourselves to others in order to receive the opposite opinion of what we feel: void. Understanding this mechanism is the key to getting out of this game. Feel the beauty of now.

Cold Sense Dopamine

Cold Sense Dopamine

The music… Hypnotic trip, ethereal travel, to the unusual, to the absurd, to the inexistent to the eyes, to the never.

Simulacrum

Simulacrum

Human beings are replacing reality with symbols and more and more the virtual world interferes with reality, materializing itself. The virtual world is very similar to the world of our mind, however, collective, the expression of a collective unconscious is increasingly present in the virtual world.

Synchronicity

Synchronicity

It is about a causal connection of two or more psycho-physic phenomena. Inspired by a Jung’s concept. Then if you arrived until here, which phenomena are involved on this? =) Syncro’n city!
