The magellanic cloud



 Genre: Ambient

To some it may look to some like a big space monster, but it is more big than monster. To others it may look like a grazing seahorse, but the dark object toward the image right is actually an inanimate pillar of smoky dust about 20 light years long. The curiously-shaped dust structure occurs in our neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud, in a star forming region very near the expansive Tarantula Nebula. The energetic nebula is creating a star cluster named NGC 2074, whose center is visible just off the top of the image in the direction of the neck of the seahorse. The above representative color image was taken last year by the Hubble Space Telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 in honor of Hubble's 100,000th trip around the Earth. As young stars in the cluster form, their light and winds will slowly erode the dust pillars away over the next million years.

Eternal Drama
The elements of a mysterious yet constant and all encompassing 'Law' at work here. Everything must change and your sounds vividly express the necessity of that change. Life flows through with an ever giving entrance of musical magic. Thoughtful and provocative vision of ' Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!' The law yet to be realized by the many. Wonderful imagination and composition.

It's very cool
to have so many composers here interested in astronomy and space music in general. This is wonderful how the morphing soundscape mirrors the pillars and tendrils of dust and gas in the nebula.

I'm completely there. Fabulous soundscape for headphones Harald. Time stands still.

Thanks for the dload sir!

This one develops nicely
and is much more sonorous than other recent posts, but it may just be me. Whatever, lovely journey.
