Rid of Former Ties by TheMichaelMacRae Rid of Former Ties by TheMichaelMacRae
His initial thoughts were primordial and not for many hours did the fragmented memories coalesce to make sense of the world he found himself in. Ancient machinery, even in its time having been hastily ramshackeled together, now sits stale and frigid though miraculously functional. Everything was the same but devoid of the feverish activity and echoing calls of the loudspeakers that beckoned him to his slumber over a century ago. The gallery was still. Long before his new brain could recall the words to theorize what events took place in his absence he knew that everything was exactly as he had wanted it. Everything was as it should be.…

That's a lovely story behind this beautiful piece. I wonder, is it meant to be bittersweet? The way things should be, is he happy about this, or accepting of it? (Really interested in your story!)
I love the lighting, and I love the song you've paired with this

The synopsis behind this is that he was part of a large group of people that were put in these pods and transformed into a breed of bio mechanical humanoids that could survive in the decimated landscape and hopefully rebuild society and lead what few humans remained. This process takes a long time, around 150 years. After he emerges from his pod he finds he is last one to wake up. The bunker they were in has been partially destroyed and there is no evidence left as to the whereabouts of his compatriots. He is immediately entranced by his predicament, he's alone, he's free. So he goes off to become whatever he chooses. He leaves and never looks back because he doesn't care.
