We conclude our initial visit to Chronopolis with "The End of Time," which seems rather appropriate. Ophanin (Mathieu Deltour) conjures gargantuan symphonic resonance with a dose of Romanticism in this stirring orchestral take on "Prisoners of Fate":
"This is a very emotionally charged song, but from a melodic point of view it's difficult to grasp it. Without the harmony in unprepared ninths chords, it loses much of its strength. It was necessary to shape the original theme to make something interesting. It was a hard journey to get this result! Thanks to prophetik music and Aki-FR for their help."
I love the direction Mathieu took, challenging listeners while still keeping the source recognizable. There's a scope and grandeur, especially to the louder brass sections, that's truly breathtaking; album director Brad "prophetik music" Burr writes:
""Prisoners of Fate" is such an incredibly gorgeous piece of music, but that makes it more difficult to arrange since it's so suited to the orchestration it already has. Mathieu does a great job making something new and different from the original. I particularly love the recap of the melody near the end."
Definitely tricky to arrange this source in this style without staying too close to the original, and I think the artist's vision and the hard journey involved in reaching this destination was well worth it; I'm impressed by how natural & evocative the end result is, where the melody & motifs feeling comfortable and powerful in their new home. With a name like "The End of Time" it has to sound vast, cosmic, & significant... and it does. Great work from Mathieu and from Brad & the entire team of artists who worked together the last several years to bring you this album - we hope you enjoy it!
