Description
I watched the new film, Prometheus, earlier this week and wasn't impressed but the journey the travellers took through space gave me the idea for this mix.

It's around seven minutes. There's a longer version moving through my head as I type this.

But do you dream in cryo?
Love the evolving strings and the simple tone set you use. It has all the elements you need to evoke a long journey through the starry abyss.

Thanks Paul.
Doug

PS - just downloaded a sample copy of Zebra to try out. It looks like it would take a long while to learn to use well but the sounds it makes are amazing.

Doug, we posted at the same time. You'll get to love the Zebra. Just buy it, really. It's a wonderful piece of software.

Prometheus
was extremely disappointing, as you say. Your music never does though. Is it me or are you becoming more melodic as the years go by?

More melodic
I have often thought the same. Subtle but there. And still Reinholt cool!

Hi Dave......
I noticed that too..... but it's just a phase. Some other synth/combination of sounds will come along and I'll be sucked in to make some noise. Melodic or not would then be pot luck, depending on my mood at the time the mix was put together.

Take care.

Take care.

Okay...
I'll go against the grain and say I actually liked Prometheus. Flawed, definitely, but still enjoyable.

This tune, on the other hand, is in no way flawed and extremely enjoyable. Calm, yet full of foreboding. A vast sound that completely brings out the vision of a voyage through the cold darkness of space.

Hi.....
I must admit the film had some evocative moments, so I'm going to watch it again later. To be honest I can't remember any of the original movie soundtrack, so I want to listen to that again.

Take care.

Have you ever thought
what kind of music you'd make if you were confined to a starship on one of those lengthy journeys through space?
Wonderful ambient sounds Paul. It's good to know that your familial duties and your renewed interest in photography haven't stopped you from creating these dreamy smooth aural voyages.

Hi Richard......
I think I already answered your question. I'm just late answering the comments on my last few mixes.

I tend to move between 'current' interests. More so these days as I don't spend as much time on the computers at home. This will change again, I'm sure.

Take care.
