“Steel Gardens” draws its inspiration from the cavernous cityscapes and expansive vistas of the indie video game NaissanceE. Through combining elements of minimalism and ambient music, the composition seeks to capture the mysterious atmosphere and surreal beauty of the sci-fi complex that the player explores. This piece makes use of antiphonal brass choirs to immerse the audience in the evolving sound world.
