The Book of Shardtron, is a sonic novel about a dark and enchanting crystalline world, featuring beats of underground artists and producers.
The Shardtronian world is as dangerous and dark as it is decadent and glittering. A combination of the organically faceted and the unnaturally angular. it is a place of beauty, the ancient and the advanced morphing into one another, never quite separating but never really fully in sync either. We the Shardtron collective are attempting to capture this struggle piece by piece.
Chapter 6: Cave Hopping, was composed by Jessica Jokhi. Jokhi is an abstract painter, sound/music producer, and multimedia artist.
-"The title Cave Hopping immediately seemed to evoke a sense of traveling. I wanted to create an atmosphere with the hollow qualities of a cave but still with a murky and heavy atmosphere that hangs within that space. Delving into the black abyss, the journey changes to one of quick but careful exploration through the narrowing spaces of the caves. The listener slowly enters into the space where rocky walls close in around them before being forcibly pushed out into open stale air again as the characters follow the winding depths of the underground caverns."
