A fusion of percussions and hopping arpeggios open this Axel Stupplich 4th opus solo.
Slow synthesized modulations envelop the intro of Beyond the Stars, which becomes more melody with its fine fluty line. Sequences become more biting and the rhythm more nervous under soft synthesized layers, plunging the rhythm in a nostalgic broth. Because Voices of Dawn is an album imprints of nostalgia for the fans of Pyramid Peak and the first works of Axess.
Sunrise from east, wind grows from the grassfields. Once in life a human being should focus with all his inner spirit on a familiar land. He should let himself go completely, to a land that he knows and contemplate it from many sides, as much as he's able to. He should stop and be astonished in front of it. Wondering, he should touch it carefully in every season, and take inside every sound. He should think about its creatures, and feel every breath of wind flowing, awaking inside the radiant memory of the noon light, the uncountable colours of the twilight, of the sunrise, and the obscurity of the evening. 'Made of Dawn' is the soundtrack for these words, thanks to the magic that these incredible musicians did with music. Puff Dragon, Kick Bong, Sound From The Ground, Pitch Black and others.
