The dark silhouette of a grand castle haunts the heavens, its walls towering high and strong, a beacon of strength. It is said that a powerful ruler resides there protected by loyal knights who defend the kingdom against any invader.
The setting sun stains the sky with hues of orange and purple, casting a warm glow over the land. It is a world that beckons to be explored, a place where honor and valor are highly prized. In Ethereal Realm, fantasy meets history and legends never die.
EXPLORATION THEMES (DAY)
At dawn, the music is hopeful. Flutes and strings fill the air with discovery. The melodies are uplifting, instilling a sense of adventurous possibility.
EXPLORATION THEMES (NIGHT)
At night, this ancient music takes on a darker tone, deep choral notes echo from a faraway moon. There’s dangerous possibility lurking in the distance, just out of reach. The melodies become more mysterious and unsettled as they progress, creating a sense of anticipation, excitement and reflection.
ARCANUM & MAGIC THEMES
The scent of books, vials and potions fill the air. Lively and whimsical, these themes are full of chromatic arpeggios and playful, lighthearted melodies that capture a sense of mysterious wonder.
TOWN, SETTLEMENT & CASTLE THEME
Lively and graceful, these themes evoke a sense of old-world charm and elegance. The melodies rise and fall as harmonies echo off of ancient castle walls, filling the air with enchantment and wonder.
GRAVES AND CAVES THEMES
Minor chords, eerie vacant melodies, this music is dark and foreboding. A sense of danger and uncertainty haunts every note. Let this accompany you as you pillage forgotten tombs searching for priceless treasures in the unknown.
Powerful and dramatic rhythms capture the grandeur of ancient combat. The notes themselves dance a fierce struggle of an unyielding, relentless fury. Persistent strings and pulsing brass scratch away as swords meet.
Like whispers on a breeze, these gentle melodies evoke an inner peace and tranquility as the world fades away, replaced by the wondrous landscapes and creatures in your imagination. Serenity in your mind’s eye, joy in your ears, life is good my friend!
About the Composer
Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Kyle Preston has crafted a body of modern classical work that instills an atmosphere of intense clarity — it is music to generate empathy and wonder in those who listen. His latest album is Broken Radiance. He sometimes releases music under the pseudonyms Rubric and Aigéin.
With a background in astronomy & astrophysics, his work remains grounded in scientific realism. And it appears in a growing list of short and feature-length films, apps, and video games — including the Apple iPad Award Winner and TIME Magazine game of the year Prune. His music has been described as “otherworldly” by the Los Angeles Times and “minimalist in instrumentation but maximal in tension and emotion” by The New Yorker. His songs Fathom and We’re All We’ve Got were included in Spotify's Classical New Releases official playlist in 2021. He’s not on social media (except YouTube).
