Even in those moments when the character is in suspense you have that feeling where you get goosebumps from just listening.

The score of Anton Sanko is amazing in this audio series. The mix of 80s and classic synth-wave makes you even more like part of the story. Why? Because the mixing is phenomenal every second counts in the score every chill moment you feel fine but the mix of some areas where you get that feeling that there is something next to you but really there is nothing there. That is why I mention that the score is just a very important part of this series it just mixes in very perfectly.

Peter Mattei’s vision for Sonarius is just an amazing look at how someone passes grief of losing someone special in their life as well as how powerful is technology with a touch of Cosmic Horror. Looking at life as well as how he directed and created this universe that can expand to much more the way that this series ended.
