Description
Inspired by some photographs of the moon, the images had been airbrushed out. I worked the start of the song but rushed the rest, i don't know whether it's worth it....you judge?

whammy me
just fabulous. The Beck like guitars and that low growl synth pad are just fantastic together. Super choices on the snippets of vocal and that monster bass line. I really find myself looking forward to each post (and picture.

I'm still working 'patriot', but my recording space is getting a face lift (yeah!). I might be down for a couple of weeks. I have not forgotten!

Great ambience
I love the way this builds, great guitar sound...has a real Gilmour sound to it. Very powerful in the manner that there is so much tension being restrained ( in the sense that the direction alluded to musically never quite comes out with the anticipated whallop ) .....very cool mood, imaginative and excellent tremelo arm use.
I will certainly check out more of your songs.

Worth it ? Worth it at twice the price -
Great atmosphere and and movement on the bottom. The guitar layers are beautiful and everything works together really well - including the vocal dubs. Cool piece.

Perfect fantasy mood to match your fairies. Cool with the radio voices and the near surreal feeling. I dig the art work.

very nice groove
It does remind me here and there of certain parts of Jeff Beck's music. I think the sound is superb, particularly in the bass dept. Love the guitar sound as well.

Killer Tone
The clean guitar have a slight Andy Summers feel. Nice wide open and spacious mix. You seem to have a knack for using cool sound bytes. Keep it up.

Your stuff
Is really awesome, Im usually not drawn to instrumental music, but this really stands out. It would be nice to see you hook up with a vocalist, but Im hard pressed to think of anyone that would do this justice. Intersting and good work.

buckhorn said 3254 days ago (May 31st, 2008)
No, I wouldn't call it singing.
Your stuff deserves some power and range, though I can hear someone rapping to this one. You can always put up a tune in open collaborations and see what happens. Anyway Your stuff is excellent as is .

Very moving soundscape
I feel a sense of depth amongst the sound samples and guitar layers.
The great sound drum and bass groove are the glue that holds it all together so beautifully.
I hear a faint bit of the Floyd influence perhaps?
Fav'd!

Awesome guitar work on this one. I've really been enjoying all your pieces. You are extremely creative and intelligent in your instrument and sound choices. Your tunes make me think - as well as just being really cool chill stuff. This has some kick ass bass in it and I really like how you drop stuff out and then build it back up again. Cool tune, dude. Thanks!

Apropos of lunacy
Vintage tokai. This is choice stuff. Thanks for the pointer. Structures on the moon? Hahaha. That would be a pretty big secret to keep from the whole world of astronomers. But still, this works very well. The conspiracy crowd is never without interesting ideas. The music is beautifully wrapped around the voice samples. This would have been a good candidate for the space race challenge.

wow steve this is so trippy with the bells and echo guitar whilst at the same time being rocky with the percussion and bass driving through. sounds fantastic. love this. i love the dialogue you mixed in. this sounds so expertly conceived. i am in awe....although i wouldn't have given neil armstrong the air-time. the panned high guitar sounds at the end are sublime.
