Emil Smith – Aetherreach (Spotify)

This song serves as an intro for an animated series 'Aetherreach', which is currently in development.

It encapsulates the ethnic middle eastern setting in a science-fantasy universe with advanced robotic technology.

With organic drums and ethnic instruments such as kamancheh and duduk, the song progresses in odd time ostinatos into a crescendo of a cinematic action-packed climax.

Cover-art by the director Lakstein Fernandes.
