West Michigan Symphony Presents: Nascence and Apotheosis from the video game Journey, by Austin Wintory.

The soundtrack of Journey has acquired a life of its own, independent of the game. The cello theme, which opens the first plateau of the game, represents the player’s embarkation on his journey. It serves also as a Leitmotif for the journey itself. Apotheosis is the final stage of enlightenment, it’s initial notes are enhanced with both melodic and orchestral variations.
