Ionospheric Express

I recently uncovered a hidden trove of audio I did in Spring, 2003. Many of the tracks are unfinished (some tunes I look forward to getting back to someday -- provided I can track down where all the little audio bits wound up when our PC died that summer), but a few I actually managed to complete at the time. This is one of those tracks.

I said of this track, upon its completion back in April, 2003: "A nice groove to chill-out to. Physically modelled hammered-instruments and ethnic percussion are supported by a simple bass groove and ethereal melodies. Techie notes: this song was sequenced in Computer Music's free ComputerMuzys program and only free VSTi were used (dmiHammer, MS-404, and CM-101)."

Anyway, I like listening to this song because it helps keep alive the hope that space travel may one day become a reality.

NOTE: This song is now available on the new "Phreakbox v1.4: The Instrumentals" album, available for download from Amazon MP3, Lala.com, and available soon from iTunes and Rhapsody and on Audio CD.
