My Planet Glows In The Dark


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is my latest tune.

After purchasing a new M-Audio 88 key and a buttload of new soft synths, I got inspired and sat down and worked this out in about a week.

I also used my new symphonic samples for the Cellos in this. This is the 1st time in a very long time where I played live all the way thru the tune rather than building sections I liked and then expounding on them.

I came up with the name for the song after reading an article that stated scientists discovered that Saturn's moon Titan glows in the dark.

I thought that was pretty cool, and since I always seem to come with with really odd song titles this one worked out pretty good (for me).

Please enjoy, comments welcome.

Peace, Always!

A quality groove DJ. I like the different synths you bring in and the way they transition. The hard panned chirping and burbling really give the mix and fine sense of width and space. I enjoyed the listen. Thanks, Peter.

Congrats on the new toys
Does this mean there will be lots of cool new tunes? I hope so. This one develops nicely and has lots of variety of sound and texture to hold my interest. I did enjoy and I took a copy to enjoy later, thank you.

Thanks
Thanks, Richard.

And the answer to your question is yes. I am working on new tunes now and even a couple of remakes of a Pink Floyd song and one Gary Numan song.

Stay tuned!

Update
Sorry for the 10 mile long fade. I meant to shorten it and forgot.

Plus, a close friend is working on a guitar solo for the song. Once it's completed I will post it.

Nicely built.
Congrats on the new toys! A slow but satisfying build in this piece, and enough details to make it work. I think this would work nicely to accompany some CG animation.

I love my new toys! (Thank God for eBay)!!

Check back in a few weeks to hear the mix with my friend's guitar solo in it. I only play rhythm guitar, this guy blazes..

Thanks for the comments as well.

Narad, Thanks!
I really appreciate your comment.

And as far as my song icon, I usually try to make them fit in some little way to the song. This one was perfect! Great shot of Titan.
