This piece is a great reminder of just how very distant our voyages may someday be. The pads and astronaut dialog are full of innocence and yet not a little foreboding; the same feeling I get when I watch the last chapter of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Thanks! When I uploaded this, it wasn’t my intention to publish it at that very moment. But I forgot to uncheck the Publish Now box and when I unpublished it I noticed that you had already commented. So, apologies for that and my late reply. Anyway, I am glad that my intention came across.

Found this one just by coincidence. This is so different from anything else I’ve heard and yet it sounds familiar for some reason. A truly fascinating and at times very beautiful composition. Deeply impressed, Sub

Thank you, Per. I guess that it has gone under the radar because of me unpublishing and republishing it. And maybe most people just don’t like it…;-)

I know a few people who would listen to it and appreciate it if they knew it was here. Why don’t you delete it and re-post it so it appears on the first page?

Then I would lose the comments, which is a shame for your and the Admiral’s effort. Soon people will be too busy listening to the Secret Mixter’s results anyway. But thanks for your vote of confidence. Looking forward to your next remix.

I’m also looking forward to my next remix. Been staring at the computer for a week. Nothing happens…

I know the feeling. That’s why I never participate in Secret Mixter. I am no good at deadlines.

I have been working on something since last week, but up until now I have only The Admiral’s piano intro and a rather short Kaer Trouz vocal, which work pretty good together, but is also a bit repetitive.

The only remedy I know for repetitiveness is carefully placed moments of silence in order to make the mix more dynamic. Silence is an underrated, almost forgotten component in music nowadays.

This discussion is getting interesting but I’m not sure this place is the right one for a dialogue between two people.

You’re probably right. A good remark about silence though.
