The Gate of Life is an immersion into a 2D world. Beginning in a place of sorrow, melancholy and reflection, the tale is a guided quest of self-discovery. The sombre introduction flows into an introspective interlude, igniting the protagonist with a spark of internal energy and the determination to persevere with the pursuit of strength. Through the power of volition emerges a tranquil conclusion.
In his debut studio album, The Gate of Life, 747 showcases a new maturity to his productions, implementing intricate synth work and his innate sense of musicality to present eleven original compositions and a masterful cover of Giorgio Moroder’s 1978 theme. Emotive pads and serene soundscapes come together to create an hour-long wistful dream, suspending the listener in a euphoric haze. With a techno mainstay, The Gate of Life branches into the realms of classical, ambient and cinema to create a musically cohesive and sonically pleasing work of art. With acidic wisps and a metallic aura the album brings out a familiar feeling within an innovative masterpiece.
