Description
This is my first real attempt at music for a while. It is a variation of a piece I made in January this year, hence the title.

I still can't really get into music in my old way but this was almost finished before I started playing with it today.

There will be more stuff coming but I just don't know when.

Dhalgren is an amazing SciFi novel by Samuel R Delany. Wierd and wonderful at the same time.

Wierd and wonderful
Does Not describe this beautiful soundscape. Only the word Wonderful does. In your characteristic slow pace, you have worked sci-fi musical magic once again, Paul. terrific listen. You are THE master in the genre. Thanks for sharing this.

Hi Paul.....
Thank you kindly for your warm thoughts. They are appreciated.

My heart isn't in the music for the moment. I am focused elsewhere, in other interests. The original of this mix just happened to find me with some free time, so I did a little work on it.

Take care.

Nice one, Paul
Good to hear a new one from you. Too bad you're having creative problems, same as me. Only it doesn't sound like it on this "stellar" tune. Real nice sci-fi piece, well done, as usual.

Thanks and take care,
Henke

Hi Henke....
I don't think it's creative problems, more a 'focus elsewhere' and so don't put the time to making music that I used to do. The thing is, it used to bother me but now I'm cool with not doing very much music.

I'll probably be back with a bang, but not just yet.

Take care.

Hi Daug....
I love sharing music with others. I just don't enjoy creating it as much as I did. Messing around with computers and smartphones has my focus just now.

Thanks for stopping by.

Take care.

Just what I needed. True ambient, with panache. Keep 'em coming. All in good time, of course.

Hi Duane.....
'Take your time, but hurry up' comes to mind. I'm chilling to the bits and bytes of operating systems, hardware and smartphones at the moment. The sign on my music room door is 'Gone Fishing' and whilst I can still, in my imagination, float the fly down the river, I'll be away a little while.

Take care.

Hi Patty.....
You're very kind. I check more or less every single day on MJ's (apart from when the site goes unresponsive) but I never really have the urge to make any music these days. Yesterday caught me both checking the site and making music. Que sera sera, as Doris would say.

Take care.

Was the weirdest book I've ever read. If they ever try to make it into a movie, this is a good start on the soundtrack.

Hi Vmabus......
I totally agree about the book being the weirdest. It's a good job that it's written well otherwise it would be a disaster.

Good of you to drop by.

Take care.

Hi Outer.....
You're totally right with this observation. There were many 'observations' within the narrative. This was part of the beauty of the book.

Take care.
