Description
It’s been a very long and lonely journey in this space pod I call TinTin. 7 Years 7 months and 7 days to be exact. Why am I writing this log, well control central has requested these routine reports to keep our minds from going normal to spaced. So like always I will comply.

REPORT Log: 031777: I am secluded and all alone in on the outer fringes of the prime border of our so called great empire. Nothing, but alpha spectrum radiation and solar dust to report. Nothing exciting. Where is this great new adventure I signed up for? Nothing but time, routine for my mind to get spaced.
Psyche report: I’m hearing the voices of old relatives and loved ones long since gone out here-I can’t explain it. I have been having the same dream over and over since I arrived here…

Last report: Space Pod number 070707

The piano is wonderful!
Lovely, lyrical, lonely, luscious. Very nice entry in the SRC, and beautiful work regardless. Cheers.

Piano
gives such depth and warmth of sound to this Patty..... the loneliness is depicted in a way that we can sense such a space journey would feel.... the added voice and synth sounds too, add to the atmosphere, lovely stuff..... even meditative, regards M

Hi M :)
Thanks for the lovely comment. I really appreciate them :)

The journey is different for many; some share it with friends and some spend their lives alone. In her case, I was trying to imagine the loneliness of being devoid of things that mean so much to her.

Sooo looking forward to listening to your creation (SRC)

haunting the baby grand
she plays the piano to keep her mind clear of the dream. the notes echo through the empty halls of TinTin, with the lonely music almost pleading for anyone out there to join in... and they do.

beautiful improv, loved the ghostly alien tendrils shadowing your notes.

Your comment gets a "This!" period.

Is ic42 gonna blast off with one of his creations?? If so I'll be monitoring it on all frequencies-hehe

Take care and thanks again for listening.

out of time
I have not had enough time to participate in this race, until recently when a friend offered one of his three (!) space-race pieces to me as a head-start collaboration. So last week's "no" has turned into this week's "yes"... there will be an ic42 collaboration, hopefully tonight or tomorrow. thank you for your participation, and your interest in mine!

Really beautiful! The solemn piano goes perfectly with the space theme.

(Personally, I'd prefer the soft background sounds to be higher in the mix, but that's me :)

Well done, I like this!

Wow, Patricia,
it is unimaginable to be locked away for so long a time. It would be hard not to escape such solitude by dreaming. What you wrote was so visceral that I felt the loneliness. Well done. Thanks.

Yeah I agree, no one should be subjected to such a disconnection from ones own home (earth) Yet we push on to leave such a beautiful place-I'll never understand.

Henke said 2059 days ago (November 2nd, 2011)
I agree
with all above, that the piano playing is supercool and does all that it is supposed to do (even if I did get some other expectations from the song art).

The intro on the other hand is really "out there".

Some have suggested that the backdrop be more prominent in the mix. Maybe rather have the piano a little back in it? In one or two places it feels as if it is sniffing the reds in the "happy meter" (if you know what I mean...)

Much enjoyed and thanks for the download.

Take care,
Henke

Hi Henke
Well, the beginning I wanted to emphasize more of a rebirth into another reality which her mind is going through.

As for the other suggestions they are all valid. I was experimenting on a Soundbooth for the final mix. I still need more experience in mixing :)

Thanks for the comment

TinTin GoodGood
Love that opening, then the introduction of the piano on top of distant ambient sounds. Personally, I think the first 1:30 or so makes the tune. I know you're a pianist, so you want to play the piano, but the sparse bits work better. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but there it is anyway. In any case, it's a beautiful piece that maybe wants to be stretched out some. Great work. Enjoyed the description and the artwork. TinTin ... hahaha, clever... lends some authenticity to the premise.

Thank you
For the suggestions. I appreciate them. I love both genres of ambient and piano. The fusion of the two might be more of a challenge, but I keep trying. I really would love to make it all ambient, but the yearning to play piano was more prevalent.

As for the length of the piece, it is a bit short, but it is improvised and I have a limited amount creativity when it comes out like that :)

Thanks again for listening.

Well done - beautiful work. There are a fair amount of good artists here at MJ - YOU are one of the exceptional ones. You choose quality over quantity and it is very impressive. One thought - you might consider eliminating the last 15 or so seconds of dead space at the end (no pun intended). Other than that - gorgeous work!

Voyage
Loneliness dreams of nothing but the void.
Emptiness from without moves within.
Stars watch with cold dispassion.
Leaving only time.

Satisfaction is found through the remembrance of all that is lovely.
Satisfaction is found.

the holographic universe
thoughts: maybe the souls of the dead float out into space in an ever expanding sphere of the ultimate awareness - they approach the film of the bubble

and maybe awareness is painted on the surface of the bubble of objective-reality - and it projects back the 3D illusion we experience as subjective-reality

The solitude
is truly felt in this piece. Far away, far out, gazing out a small window perhaps, the flicker of a distant nova, it seems so quiet out there.
Perfect!

You manage
to get an awful lot into a very short time; a not inconsiderable gift! And that change at 2:51 is heart breaking. All in all, a very pensive piece.

For me, a critical element of this whole challenge is the different "Description" sections: I love that yours is presented as a literary 'support' for the music. Very well done, PatriciaGirl!

Love,

MoM

Hi MoM
I love how little of a melody or acsound can create such a vivid picture in our minds. I hear that our minds thinks in pictures and not words-I believe that. The description is always nice in order to help move the story along but its the mind that fills in all the gaps.

Thanks for listening and for the comment :)

A comment about Meaning?
Beauty defined by capturing the essence of loneliness - or is it pointlessness, way out there at the 'rim of things'. Love the snippets of memory and perhaps the onset of madness. Very emotional for me.

Peace,
Doug

vastness within
Beautiful piano playing...especially the first minute I find extraordinary. Thomas Newman does things like that, rarely find this kind of subtlety on a website with free downloads! The lingering bell synth and airy accents in the background are wonderfully subtle and weightless. I'd love to know what library you're using for that!
The composition is moving and mature - this is quite an amazing track, and what an entry to the space race. Thanks for the download.

HI Parichayaka
Thanks so much for taking the time to listen I really appreciate it.

I'll try to check out the reference to Thomas Newman, it sounds interesting.

The library of sounds that were used are actually sound cards for the X8. I believe the tones that were used are from the World sounds card. The lower sounding pads are modified patches from various other cards.

Take care and you're welcome for the dl.
