Many years ago I assumed 

Um papa chuka maka nana sing tao

Destine tupa* wana wana doma ching pow

Hedi kapa lua kuma jene sing te

U mama chuka pana,

 

was ancient Egyptian and translated it as :

One side of the door is dream and the other real,

or should I reconsider.

I cursed,

"Giving what you have in your hand is what it is,"

and then a waving hand circled and cursed these shining gifts,

these magic words,

The splendor of my flowing words,

"Dreams have both sides of this door, both dream, and real."

I keep waiting for this track to appear on YouTube since its release. It's a shame there is no way of iframe embedding here, or an Invision plugin for Bandcamp. So I'm sharing it directly because it's just so awesome for anyone who's a fan of Minecraft.

about

An R&B interpretation of the Minecraft OST's "Mutation." I wanted to bring attention to the End Poem which scrolls after smiting the Ender Dragon. In its ambiguity, the poem alludes to life and emulations of life ("dreams," "the long dream," "yet he still plays the game"). Whether it be a dream, a game, or any emulation of life which gives us humans more of a sense of capability, we are capable of similarly huge feats in real life. A neat poem about how videogames and reality coincide in teaching us life's lessons - starting out not knowing what to do, limping through progress, and beginning a new endeavor following achievement. The potential of the multidemensional human being is incredible. We can dream big, but only dreaming will never get us there - gotta wake up.

lyrics

Take a breath now. Take another. Just like the beginning when you left your mother:
Fresh air filling your lungs, unintelligible, speaking in tongues. Like Mother Nature's other daughters & sons,
We all start somewhere - gotta take our first step into a world so vast, so wide for which we ain't prepped.
Time's a-wasting so give it your all; won't be long before now until night falls.


Go on, take a look at that pretty horizon; nothing but opportunity where the trees meet the skies
and you're left there wondering how to spend your time - either keep it simple stupid or level up and grind.
It's your life . . . your dreams, your future; even though along the way you might need a few sutures.
That's the way of the game - either let it pass by or follow your heart to live before you die.


Credits rolling - think your journey is over? Nah fam, you just stumbled on a treasure trove.
Understand things ain't what you think they be - they ain't what you hear, they ain't what you see.
Time to get acclimated to this new level; grab a chair 'cause there be so much to know and to revel.
Nab this new opportunity to figure yourself out. This path in life you takin'? Well, it's time for a new route.


You're not alone (you're not alone, not alone) You were always known (you were always known, always known)
You are loved (yeah you are loved, so much loved) Give yourself a shove (c'mon dive into this world, this dream this life - fly like a dove)


Player, your heart's a dynamo. You are stronger than you know.
It's time to leave your mark. Be the light among the dark.
Time to write your story of faith and hope and life and love - of failure and of glory.
To make this world what you want, gotta give it a little shakeup.
Only dreaming will never get you there, so come on player -
WAKE UP!

The two links above doo not work, ....

The first link works, though. There's just no way to embed the player.

P.S.

 

This is why we're missing spoiler tags. I wanted that quote with album notes collapsed. Would have avoided confusion.

P.s. 2

Apparently spoiler tags work when typed in brackets

The thing that worries me about the Cyberpunk noise-rock is that it makes me tired ... unlike the beautiful music in Witcher 3 which I could listen to for hours. I have personally composed some noise rock, so it is not a dislike. I am just afraid the music in Cyberpunk may make it one of those games you never play a second time.

With the exception of noise rock fans....

I agree. No one stays on a crack high 24/7. The music should be varied a lot to set the ever-changing mood. There is suppose to be a very good story here not just another DOOM copy cat set in a futuristic city. After being so let down by Rage 2 I'm not pre-ordering anything not even a CDPR game.

It goes without saying the music will be a completely different experience. I think you're worried for a valid reason @Cryzeteur. I kind of agree with both of you. I have a separate playlist even for the Witcher 3 soundtrack when I listen to it outside the game called... "SANS BATTLE", with all the hard hitting tracks skipped and only the down-tempo and low-volume tracks in it. I think "FCKD" which was used in last years trailer qualifies as battle/combat music. Besides that, I expect it to be heard in game as background noise on a low volume speaker somewhere or muffled through the walls, just to set the tone of a grimy place as seen in this year's cinematic trailer.

I'm sure the whole soundtrack won't be like this. I expect ambient solo guitar instrumentals to be there for the calmer periods of the game. I wouldn't exclude some chill-out or EDM. I think they will try and match the city environment. Wouldn't be surprised with some polka, reggae or steel drums even. :D

The entire ambient of the game is the complete opposite of the Witcher which was more or less set in the harmony of nature, whereas Cyberpunk 2077 will be set in the disharmony of the city. The soundtrack should actually follow this change. But I would agree it will be [subjective opinion] less pleasant for the ears [/subjective opinion].
