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.
We are at the end of Book 1 of the shardtron series, Book 1's Epilogue, was composed by new media artist, Ang Yuting Chiu.
"I found the title of my track a little sad, but I found it bittersweet because it was up to me to decipher how to translate the ending and continuation of this series. The last couple chords in the track are in minor as to say there will be something after the end; to move the listener forward to expect a new journey.
Yuting, is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She creates work in sound and new media and is interested in combining all these skills into new work.
