Asad stood transfixed looking at the city below. The journey to reach this mining planet took 7 years, nearly all of it in the deep sleep state. It was a hard choice to make the commitment to come here, the company was offering quadruple pay, a lifetime pension, and a decent house for anyone willing to spend 5 years in the deep mines. The only drawback is he would lose 14 years of his life on the round trip journey. What does my future hold? He had sent a message to his family shortly after arrival, telling them that all was well and he looked forward to seeing them upon his return. When they receive the message I will be on my way home.
He stared at the awakening city watching the dawning sun and looking at the mining transport ships, hundreds of them, as they prepared to pick up workers for transport to the mine sites. So many dreams and so many stories, are we real, or is it all a simulation? The sun appeared to convey a message, one of hope…one of destiny. As he watched it rise he thought he heard whispers, the Whispers of the Spectrum.

I really want to thank you all for your support and awesome suggestions and comments! I can't wait to remake these! I've been a bit uninspired lately and this has been a huge push in the right direction! It means A LOT! Thank you!
(Edit: Back to working on it. Will be updated frequently with current progress.)
Initially this piece was inspired by Muramasa: The Demon Blade, But shortly afterward I was introduced to Owl city: Fireflies, which I instantly fell in love with and heavily influenced the piece to the point of how it is now. (This is of course considering the fact that I was listening to it practically throughout the whole painting process.)
Entered this piece in the Soundforms and Artwaves Contest.
