The Cassini Probe



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

I've been busy with other stuff (iphone 3G jailbreak/unlock) so was only peripherally paying attention here, but Davajonah, with his latest piece, brought me around to playing with soundscapes again. (I've completed the iphone work and I'm very, very happy with the results).

This piece tries to depict the Cassini Probe, but could actually represent any probe sent by humanity. The Cassini Probe, though, is topical at this point in time.

The piece tries to show, through sound and the imagination, my interpretation of the probes journey across the Solar System and any communication that occurs.

The tone of the piece may be more Dark Ambient than Space Ambient. I remain open minded.

As always, share your thoughts.

Hi Michael....
I'm glad I helped with your day at work.

At the moment I'm playing with computer systems and making new synth presets for the Zebra 2, so my focus is elsewhere for now.

Take care.

Far out!
Isn't space a pretty dark "place"?! Anyway, to me this is space ambient if anything. Definitely Reinholtian! And very cinematic. Not sure if a movie about a probe would be a big hit with the public, but I can see some big cargo ships passing by in slow motion ;-)

Take care. Oh, and congrats to the iPhone.

Hi Henke........
Maybe a 5 minute or so video about a space probe would be acceptable. Maybe not. Cargo ships does sound interesting though. My head is full of all sorts of science fact/fiction modes of both travel and explorations, so more or less anything we decide would fit the soundscape, as long as we were in space.

The iphone was worth being sidetracked for, in my opinion.

Take care.

Dark and Spacey
Words don't capture reliably what you create. This is a fabulous ride. Lots of blackness, speckled with stars, and the sun coming out from behind a planet. Cool soundscape!!!

Thanks for this contribution to making our lives that much more interesting!

Hi Doug....
Once again I am encouraged by your thoughts. It's good to know that people whom I respect, here on Macjams, have thoughts to share with me about my creations.

Take care.

I'm currently busy with getting my life back on some sort of track and hope to get into the music making business again in the near future, with a planned third net album 'Karma of Love' that will be an Immersive Ambient set of tracks. This should be... [see more]
