Since I started my new job, I have not had a chance to take the time and actually relax a bit, and get back to my music, and my music related activities.
Well, fortunately on Sunday (After having to rebuild my main workstation and getting all my audio/video software/hardware re-installed), I was able to take some time and work on the first draft of the latest song for the new CD I’m working on. I spent a bit more time this evening working on it to polish it up for “Initial posting and feedback”
La famille du solénoïde is a musical tour through our solar system inspired by the book “The Planets” by Dava Sobel. In a sense, it’s a sequel CD to my previous CD The Maestoso Interstellar Suite. (Yep, for those of you paying attention and looking at those sites, I’m using SharePoint as my backend :))
Unlike the other tracks currently listed on the CDs page, I’m releasing the current draft in full. The rest of the tracks (Like all the other CD Products I have listed on my music site) are just 2 minute samples of the full tracks. I’ve decided to release Ouranos the Progenitor (Uranus) in full at this time. (Remember, it’s a work in progress, and will not be the final version that shows up on the CD).
That brings the list of drafts up to 8 tracks now, with one more definite track (For Neptune) to be worked up a bit more, then all the “Primary” tracks are complete as follows:
- Giver of Life (Sol)
- Thief in The Night (Mercury)
- Goddess of Love (Venus)
- Terra (Earth)
- God of War (Mars)
- Optimus Maximus (Jupiter)
- Ring Resonation (Saturn)
- Ouranos the Progenitor (Uranus)
- (Placeholder for track to be based on Neptune)
I may do a couple of tracks on the Minor planets, but I have not decided yet. It depends on the overall length of the CD when all the drafts are nearly done.
I would be interested in your feedback of Ouranos the Progenitor (Uranus), or for any of the other sample tracks!
