This intriguing description sets the stage for what listeners can expect from this highly anticipated album. Notaker’s goal with this project was to create something timeless, a piece of art that could be looked back upon with pride and wonder in the years to come.
The album’s title, ‘Echoes In Eternity,’ draws inspiration from the famous quote by Marcus Aurelius, “What we do now echoes in eternity.” This choice reflects Notaker’s desire to make a lasting impact with his music, leaving a legacy that transcends time and space.
‘Echoes In Eternity’ is more than just a collection of electronic tracks; it’s a journey that engages listeners on an emotional level.
While the album had not been released at the time of this writing, Notaker expressed hope that the emotions he poured into the music during its creation would shine through to the audience.
This emotional connection is evident in tracks like “Rainbow Eyes” and “Speed of Light,” which feature exceptional vocal performances by Danyka Nadeau and Eric Lumiere, respectively.
These songs showcase Notaker’s ability to infuse profound emotion into his music, combining sweeping melodies and shimmering synth work to create a truly immersive experience.
Diverse Musical Influences
‘Echoes In Eternity’ is a 13-track masterpiece that incorporates various elements of Notaker’s wide-ranging musical influences. While “Rainbow Eyes” and “Speed of Light” lean towards a vocal-driven style, the title track, “Echoes In Eternity,” takes a different approach. It’s a high-energy, bass-driven anthem designed to ignite the dancefloor, setting the tone for upcoming performances.
Tracks like “Unreal” demonstrate Notaker’s mastery of the drum and bass genre, while “Not Of This Dimension” and “The Illusion Of Time” offer gentler, atmospheric sounds that connect the album’s pieces seamlessly. The final track, “The Belt of Venus,” provides a climactic, euphoric conclusion that leaves listeners with a sense of contentment and peace.
