Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine – The New World – Tree of Life


A rainbow met the horizon with an eruption of light. Spirals of color poured from the source—violet, amber, emerald and gold—arcing into the sky and then slamming sharply into the dirt. There were forms in the arcs; shapes of man and animal alike, twisting along the energies as they coalesced into a writhing pool, motes of energy rising slowly from its surface like fireflies.

Zoe and her companion watched in wonder as three forms gracefully emerged from the spectacle, shedding flecks of light as they surfaced. The first: an unnaturally thin man, his head swarming with bees. The second: a child whose hair was set afire and whose back sprouted gossamer wings. The third: a woman of some age, her hair white and her dress flowing around her like a possessed fog.

Zoe could hear their voices, in synchronicity, repeating what sounded like a lullaby:

We come for the one,
We come for the one,
Who holds the Tree within her eye.

We come for the one,
We come for the one,
Her new world makes the Devil cry.

We come for the one,
We come for the one,
Giver of life who now must die.

  1. Okay, I’m not even sure what to think at this point. Each piece becomes more and more inventive, more and more enjoyable and this one has added the touch of special I adore when it comes to much in the fantasy/sci-fi arena. I love it!
