netcitizen0 I actually downloaded this as a torrent.. I then decided to track down Chronos and buy it through Bandcamp.. honestly I think it is the best £10 i have ever spent.
This album is absolutely incredible!
Gives me chills to the point where I think I cannot speak.
Vinculum is also a work of art.. this man should be doing film scores.
Thank you sooo much Secret of Elements, I will be buying all your albums!! Favorite track: Memento.

thehermitslibrary This album makes up part of the soundtrack that scores my subconscious; it somehow compliments everything in my life that has made me me. The compositions are flawless, you can literally sense the vulnerable heart that wrote them. I connect with Chronos in a way I can’t explain here, I’m just so happy to say it exists. Thank you, Johann.

naataq Reminiscent of that epic feel of the Blade Runner score, or something come out of Miazaki's Studio Ghibli. Favorite track: Memento.

about

Chronos - in Greek mythology, the titanic personification of time - is the title of an album that captures Pätzold's musical work over a span of more than a decade. During this time, Pätzold saved the "Volkstheater" in his hometown of Rostock with which he now closely works, travelled to the Mediterranean to save lives during the European refugee crisis, became a father — the list could go on.

In combining emotive, cinematic orchestration with warm, dense layers of synthesis, Johann Pätzold aka Secret of Elements has created a deeply moving sound picture through which to narrate his personal struggles alongside the social upheavals to which he has dedicated himself as a ‘music activist.’
