about

I was listening to the radio and they did a story about Voyager entering interstellar space (that's the space between the stars) and played two audio samples during it. As soon as I heard the samples I knew that it would be the Disquiet Junto project for that week. Sure enough, Thursday night, there it was.

This was my third attempt at using the samples in a musical way. The first was very canned and uninteresting (to me at least), the second was very experimental and weird. Finally, I thought Why don't I make it musical and make it a good-bye song? And this is the result. I took the two samples and made them into a playable patch, then spun those two patches into a third one for bass (only had to drop it three octaves). Finally, made the melodic content very sparse and a little sad, but still in a major key. Kept the form simple (ABA) and did a small amount of mixing/mastering to balance things out. And...

Voila!

Space Music.

-Enjoy.
