Type

One very tiny “pop“ in space resulted in one very big bang that created a vast amount of energy from which life eventually sprang. The Big Bang also starts with that, a big bang! The music then begins its journey through timbre and tone colours, starts developing melodies, complementing rhythms, and interesting chords that all represent the creation of something new. Strong dissonances hint at the turmoil that existed, while moments of beauty signify balance arriving at various parts of the universe. These contrasting events create a very engaging and exciting musical montage of The Big Bang and what happened next.
