Love vicki
Would love to meet her some time

Interestingly I am playing it over the beginning of the APOD space track and it fits perfectly

You know
after working with her a few times I got this idea for a character in a film or novel who has a relationship with Vicki. Basically he writes her script for conversations they have leaving space for his side of them. He has Vicki be his wake up call each morning and of course she reads him his email. TMI? Perhaps.
I'll have to try the APOD combo.

I like this
it reminds me a little bit of a part of Vangelis's Albedo 0.31 (whatever)and I just like it.

Vicki! Hooray! Leonard Cohen used her voice to read a poem on one of his albums a few years back. It was a stunning combination, as is THIS. Way to go man. Good call!

Be well friend!

Vicki, oh Vicki how I long for you
I just love her, she makes so much sense. And she's always willing to give me good advice on pronunciation of words in different languages. She's just so damned smart, who wouldn't love her.

I'm sensing
the possibility of your next tune being Vicki reading from the phone book. It would be excellent. Very subtle bits in here lurking. Some beeps and wonks here and there. Spaced out. Love it.

Hi Bud
Great concept, great idea. You've put together a great track for the SRC.

Loved the voice over.

Take care.

Another Space Race gem
Great idea to put the voice in over your spacey sound bed. Reminds me of a female variant of Albedo 0.39 by Vangelis. Are you doing a B side with just the ambient effects? It easily stands alone as well, although it's not as rich as your inspired mix here.

I'm surprised by how many people here at MJ have some astronomical background. Cool.

Be well Bud,
Doug

missed this one
cool idea and great execution. Especially love the ending bits. Ever introduced Vicki to Microsoft Sam? They don't get along at all.

Henke said 2729 days ago (October 7th, 2009)
Here is another one
thinking of Vangelis' Albedo piece. A lot of astronomical facts about good old Tellus read out in a similar fashion to this with some space synths to back it up.

This was a really nice take in that vein!

Take care.

What model is she? I am guessing a mini. Trippy sound effects, very ethereal sound. Nice!

Great mixing job--
The balance of "Vicki" and the various instruments is really natural (or is natural the wrong word here?). Enjoyed it, and learned some astronomical facts as well!

i always wondered about "dog days"
i love learning things. i preferred agnes over vicki, but do not wish to start a ginger/maryanne debate. vicki does very well here, and sounds wonderful laying on your astrological sound bed. excellently perpetrated.

I didn't know Vicky
She has a very sexy voice and accent.
Although I think only platonic relations are possible with her. BTW, is she a famous black hole loving English physicist assistant's wife?

Cool idea. I like the title too :D

cause i like dogs, and i like stars...
this comment is going to seem inane but inane or not the genius of this particular bit is that it's cold and bright and romantic, all at once, just like space. i apologize to all for being mr. obvious, but that's how it strikes me.

If I just heard this playing in the other room, I swear I'd know it was yours. Even though you chose to use Vicki as your vocalist, it's not overpowered by her sweetness at all. It's not gimmicky and it's way cooler than anything HAL could've done, although it sounds to me like they were in the same quadrant of space.

Great track bud. You're a stellar phenomenon.

is always available. Pleasant and not scary like Hal from Kubrick's 2001. Boy did they get all of that wrong. The music is quite beautiful. Thank you.
