sea of stars

September 7th, 2008

This is a mix from our annual trip to the Wisconsin northwoods.  As the title suggests it's a mix for star gazing.

As I have mentioned in other posts, Rick, who runs the Hydrogen Cafe blog, and I sit out at the end of the pier and watch for shooting stars and satellites.  We each make a soundtrack for the experience.  Rick's are usually much more thought out than mine(he mix this year was great!).

I limited myself to fairly new music, stuff I have been listening to a lot lately.  I knew I wanted to include new music from Area C - Sea of Rains.  It was commissioned by the NASA RI Space Grant Consortium and the Museum of Natural History in Providence, RI as an original score for their "Mission Moon: past, present, future" exhibit at the Museum of Natural History.  It has some Nasa recordings mixed in with the music so it was a natural for this mix.

After that the other tracks are just tunes that are kind of new, sound a bit spacey and flow well together.
