splashing against each other as the tone changes, what a beautiful sound scape ou have created here, the building keys in the background really take hold with an intensity that drives this along to a crescendo to fall back to earth brilliant!

Very nifty, the way the tracks blend. You seem to be fond of these process-oriented tracks. In this case the material is very simple, which adds to its power. Muchly enjoyed.

Terrific sense of dimension... Great depiction of movement with the arpeggiation... This is very delicate and pleasing, in a yearning sort of way, the tension builds ever so gracefully... Thoroughly appreciated, thanks for posting it!

Perfect piece Bill
great elements and wonderful treatment. You should send this to NASA. I heard an NPR story about how emotionally attached the crews grow to these rovers.

it seemed to me that when Spirit failed to call home it was like a death in the family for the science team behind it...

thanks

I've really been digging more sparse stuff lately, and this came along at a fortunate time. Very judicious use of sounds, nothing speaks without communicating. I love it!

A nice tribute. The sound is pretty expansive through my speakers. They shouldn't have mad Spirit look so cute and they wouldn't have been so depressed. If I can get them to send me next, you can write me a song when I stop reporting back.

Requiem For Spirit
I saw a program about Spirit the other night. I was surprised by the sense of loss and mourning the technicians expressed. One of them explained how Spirit could remain up there and fully powered for millions of years. There's no off switch so they can't shut it down. It's waiting for a command from home that will never come. I think you summed up that sense of sadness quite nicely.

yes. that's the same program i saw. and it somehow inspired this - endless repetition, yet gradually making progress, and finally fading away and not ending - mechanical yet not

thanks

Simplicity that has depth to it. This piece conveys that! A great achievement for man to put his own intellect to work to explore the great unknown. Great sacrifices have to be made. Whether man, machine or both.

Nice gradual buildup, great chords and a lovely soundscape. Thanks for sharing this one-enjoyed it! patty:)

If aliens stumbled on Spirit nearly a thousand years from now, I would hope there was a trickle of battery power left to play this for them. Exceptional
