The Hole in the Sky



 Genre: Ambient
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

This is one of my last couple of tracks that I created as part of the Space Race Challenge 2009, but didn't submit. The idea behind it seems apt as NASA build and launch (successfully) their first rocket for over 30 years.

My thought was that there was a hole created in the atmosphere as the rocket passes through and then as the rocket exits into 'space' the hole closes with a 'pop' but obviously you don't hear the pop from the top side.

You also don't hear the 'pop' at the end of the mix!!

As always I'm interested in any thoughts you may have.

Hi Falcef......
Thanks for stopping by to listen to this piece.

I'll be having a listen to your music over this weekend.

Take care.

a grand epic quality Paul and also a Vangelis sound that I really like.

Hi Charlie.....
some of my pieces do turn out this way. I probably listen to too many Vangelis tracks, or SciFi tracks in general. I'm more into Harold Budd at the moment so anything could turn up in my next mixes.

Thanks for having a listen.

Take care.

At the beginning of the 21st century composition is as much about control as any other issue. Digital samples and computers have given the composer the potential for extreme control - or not. Loops are fine if you realize that you are giving up some of your control to another composer or musician. Back to the piece - nice atmosphere - very abrupt ending - signifies breaking through?

Hi Vaisvil......
The ending was probably my idea of this pop into space, if you could hear it from the 'outside'. Or maybe I didn't extend the fade out enough.

I agree with your first comments. It is a very emotive subject for me, loops/samples and their perceived degradation of real music (whatever that is these days). The debate continues.......

Take care.

Open chord...
...Majestic. Nice chordal changes throughout...always somewhat unexpected modulations that give a great deal of interest to the piece. And your characteristic attention to the details of the overall mix. ... Further comment: If this is "breaking through the hole," I personally feel "something" soaring into the outer regions -- perhaps a solo trumpet rocketing melodically out of the soundscape that grounds your comp. If anything, Paul, I think something truly melodic would add a dimension to your work that will really help it take wing. It doesn't have to be particularly lyrical; just something that solos away into the stars beyond. My 2 cents.)

Hi Paul.....
Your two cents thought are worth a great deal more than that to me. I agree that there sometimes is less melody in my pieces than even I would like, but I shy away for some, on reflection, silly reasons, but who knows what will appear on any future endevours. To be honest my favourite genre is classical and most of my classical output never reaches the Internet. That will have to change in the future. In those piece there is more normal structure and melodies abound.

Take care.

And nice to get back to some good ambient. I've been in "dub" mode for the past few days!

Nice and epic, as is befitting the subject material. The more I listen to your sounds, the more I get into your audio signature! I suppose we all have one. :-)

Really nice tune. Another for the collection.

Hi Dave....
My audio signature is 'algorithmic' so there is a pattern there if you'll pardon the pun. I spend more time on my pieces changing the algorithms than I do on the sounds I choose to mix together, so I suppose I have the final say and there is more of Reinholt56 in them.

I do seem to come up with some epic sounding mixes. I tend to love the dramatic in music so these type of mixes get through my like/dislike seive more than others. They seem to give the listener more of a ride for their time listening. I hope they are not too much of an emotional roller coaster!!

I'm off after finishing my comments to listen to your Dub mix.

Take care.

Nice use of space in this space related tune. I am reminded of 80s sci fi. My fav. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Gaylen75.......
Thanks for stopping by to have a listen.

I too love 80's sci-fi but amongst sci fi from every era produced.

Take care.

Hi Henke......
I thought that I'd nailed the ending fades, but my fade is not someone elses. I will most definitely pay more attention and increase the fade length where I feel a piece needs it. I'm sorry if this spoiled your listen. I don't want to spoil anyone's time listening to my music!!

I may to a remix, longer and with both gradual intros/extros and see if you like that better.

Take care.
