    new social systems and reforms. One of these communities is Robert Owen’s New Harmony. As matter of fact, this community saw much dynamism in the start, but did not last for long.

    Dark Souls OST There was somewhat of a surprise for VGM listeners upon the release of the first trailer for Dark Souls, FromSoftware’s spiritual successor to Demon’s souls. Even before any initial announcement was made, it was easy to recognize the work of veteran freelance composer Motoi Sakuraba, his trademark compositional style being so integral. Known primarily for his virtuosic progressive rock compositions, Dark Souls was to be his first fully orchestral work since the Baroque influenced

    keyboardist. Their instrumentation in the play seemed mediocre initially, but after listening to how they were able to cooperate with one another, to create harmonies sounding so consonant was incredibly interesting, especially with vocalists thrown in. The voices mixing with the instruments and vice-versa made it sound almost “angelical”. The harmonies created were also very “southern-gospel” sounding in certain points in the musical. The vocalists varied from scene to scene but in total, there seemed

    a cohesive mental processing of it’s many homophonic rhythms as a contrast. Obrecht’s application of imitation tricks the listener into confusion, only to then bring back homophonic texture to seemingly create a distinction between cacophony and harmony. While Anonymous’ mass adopts parallel motion counterpoint to weave the lines away from each other and back together again, Obrecht makes his lines less rhythmically uniform.

    complicated harmonies and rhythmic motives. These two components are interwoven to build elaborate themes which lead to a melodic design that Chopin is known for.

Various themes are introduced in the work and as Chopin develops them, they are barely recognizable. Other important elements in the creation of the nocturne are register and pitch. Register provides support for the harmonies which

    purposes exactly the same as a review but it’s written over the course of the first two listens to the music rather than after the fact. So currently, i’m about one minute into the opener ‘Resolution’. Something that struck me was the rich vocal harmonies at the beginning of the song, there are plenty of staples of the “djent” subgenre appearing throughout the track. You have the TesseracT esque chord arpeggio, clean guitar intro bleeding into a heavy riff and then dropping out to the verse, which
