The Sombrero Galaxy



 Genre: Ambient

Get Flash to see this player.

This is an extended version of a composition that was entered into MJ Space Race 2011.
After "take off" the very first sounds are frequencies of Saturn as captured by NASA, public domain.

The Sombrero Galaxy (also known as M104 or NGC 4594 ) is an unbarred spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo located 28 million light years from earth. It has a bright nucleus, an unusually large central bulge, and a prominent dust lane in its inclined disk. The dark dust lane and the bulge give this galaxy the appearance of a sombrero. The galaxy has an apparent magnitude of +9.0, making it easily visible with amateur telescopes. The large bulge, the central supermassive black hole, and the dust lane all attract the attention of professional astronomers.

At the beginning of the piece
it sounded like a 5 mile long mother ship :)

Lots of interesting sounds, lots of these sounds it seems are feeling like you could incorporate into some hip rock tone but his sounds like a hip movie space film. Like the test tub feel 3/4 through but it is all terrific!
Also love the ring pic! I just wonder if aliens are mining those rings.
Just don't look to close to saturn's rings at least from Bob Deans point of view :)

Way to Go M.O. !

It's developed into a wonderful piece.

The similarity
between this piece and our universe is that it is ever expanding... I guess there might be an optimal moment for both, maximizing beauty and awe, before it starts to dilute... That moment has probably not come to either yet, beautiful as they both are.

Looking forward to even more expansions - if you feel like it. I'll gladly listen to them all :-)

Thanks and take care,
