melanieanns As a musician--OK well a high school/college sax player--I love this album because it repeatedly feels familiar and then whisks my mind off to a whole new place. It brings me peace by showing me how much more is out there, outside of my head and outside of what I already know. Favorite track: Forgotten Strength.

Amshee Favorite? If only because it's the -first- track I fell in love with. I just play through everything and enjoy the journey...

Not your usual chiptune faire, and believe me, I've sampled. There's just something that forms a connection in you when listening to this album. Give it a shot! Favorite track: New Determination.

about

For this album, I turned again to the VRC6 sound chip, as I did with Tale of the Rat King. This time, however, I tried to create as many textures as possible with it, making complex arrangements with an orchestral sound while keeping a bit of the classic game feel. The album is dedicated to my mentor, Daisaku Ikeda, and its title comes from a poem that he composed:

---

Traveler,
From whence do you come?
And where do you go?

The moon has set,
But the sun has not yet risen.
In the chaos of darkness before the dawn
Seeking the light,
I advance
To dispel the dark clouds from my mind
To find a great tree unbowed by the tempest
I emerge from the Earth.

---

I hope you enjoy listening! It was a pleasure to create this album and I'm happy to share it with you all.

-Tom

Track Name: Traveler
(instrumental)

Traveler,
From whence do you come?
And where do you go?

The moon has set,
But the sun has not yet risen.
In the chaos of darkness before the dawn
Seeking the light,
I advance
To dispel the dark clouds from my mind
To find a great tree unbowed by the tempest
I emerge from the Earth.
