Ascension

Our Earth undergoes so much change yet our eyes seem to gaze lower and lower. Our frame of view is many times limited, distorted and obsessed with borders. Information is rushed and incomplete. Can we still look towards space, towards the stars with this attitude? What will we see? Is there hope at the end?

Coincidentally I started working on a ”spacey” track before I remembered that the SpaceX Mission is due this week. So it really fits the theme. It's an improvised one-go using LaGrange synth on the iPad, followed by tweaking the textures a bit, adding an arpeggiated part and some snippets of recordings form public domain Nasa recordings.

Also, there a video attached to this song also made with bits from public domain films related to the theme. You can find it here:

It's a sad state of affair, but we got this song at least to remind us. I really like those voice clips in there, adds a bit of variety in it.
