The Golden Path

Get Flash to see this player.

Having read the first six (proper) volumes in the Dune series of Frank Herbert and then proceding to read the other Dune-related works (ongoing) I am totally immersed in this vast literary universe. That's part of the reason why I haven't done much music for a while.

This track and two others were completed in January this year as part of a new web album but I've never got around to doing anything with it, so I will put this and the other two tracks onto Macjam's for folks to listen to, over the next week or two. This track is fifteen or so minutes long.

It is meant to be the mind of Leto II, forever seeing parts of the Golden Path in his mind and over the three and a half thousand years of his life. Cyclic Reviewing what will be, has been and is.

Before I read your commentary, and having listened to 5 1/2 minutes of your piece, I was getting the image of being in an enormous cargo hold of an interstellar freighter. It's nearly dark, the ceiling is too high to really see, there are some windows that show stars or distant nebulaue, and the swirls of all forms of energy that permeate this distant place become echoes within the cavernous room.

On the other hand, I can also immediately relate to your review of the Golden Path, a trance-like state of broader knowing. Have you also seen the European mini-series production of the first 3 Dune books? I thought they were well done as an adaptation.

Cheers Paul, I love the ambient space you've offered us.

Desert power!
The mythology of the series Dune is a very expansive universe of intrigue. Much like your pieces. The slow interwinding chord changes that has a single thread of thought adds to the whole mystery of Leto's path. Excellent Drift Length btw-perfect!

My Dune Friend!
I’ll never forget that you commented on my “Muad’Dib” song so long ago, so I had to come and listen to this! Very gripping, haunting soundscape. You can sense at every “bong” that the song shifts, like he is remembering something new. It nearly put me into a trance! Nicely done.

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]
