Song Description

"Space Airplanes" is a 16-minute mini-suite in 5 parts. It was composed using electronics, samples, and synthesizers but at times sounds almost orchestral. It goes through several changes in tempo and feel, ranging from a pulsing mid-tempo industrial-sounding groove to slower more hypnotic tempos to beautiful, mystical washes of harmonies and space-sounds that have essentially no tempo at all.

Story Behind the Song

This composition is a musical depiction of space travel. It starts with the "local" traffic of the solar system and goes farther and farther out from there. At times we feel lonely, or even lost. There is a scene on some dark, distant planet where the beings who live there are involved in some ancient religious ritual. There is a point where we seem to be freely floating, virtually motionless, at some far edge of space, just watching it all go by. At the end we hear only the faint sound of our own craft, smoothly humming, the soft sounds of indicators beeping at us, the glow of many dials lighting up our cozy cabin as we hurtle at the speed of thought itself through some outer expanse of Space to...somewhere. This is indeed a fun ride!
