Love the swirl
of the opening particles and the sombre background bass..... really has the feel of what goes on in space...... then the loneliness and mystery of the void...... lovely electronic sounding emergence. You timed it wonderfully to sound like floating in a vacuum..... very well thought out piece Adam, regards M

Thanks
This one took a while to put together, but once the idea was formed it all fell into place nicely.

the gravity of the unknown
this theme seems to be a favorite of yours, and you illustrate the unknown, in all its dark corners, so well.

The introductory entry offers us sparkles of light as everything we know stretches and is stripped away. The middle section offers us a disembodied view of purgatory, floating in the infinitely sad beauty of the void. I must offer my appreciation for your perfect choice of clarinet voice for the sweetly melancholy melody here. As we get swept through to the other side, we can see the same familiar sparkles as we entered, but now we carry the memory of the void as well, and we know we will never be the same.

They say
TO be careful when gazing into the abyss that you do not look too long should it gaze back into you. I have never averted my eyes, exploring instead the depths.

Very cool sound choices and textures. Nice work, the mix sounds very clean. This is def space music, possibly something you would hear around my parts. ( stop in if youre ever in andromeda ;)

It sounds like the musical equivalent of a question mark. That's the image I kept getting in my mind. What is this? Why is it here? Why are we here? Where did it come from? So many questions space has! Nice work.

Space
is really the ultimate mystery. The size of it is nearly incomprehensible to our little brains. We've had to invent entire concepts of abstraction just to deal with the immensity.

Mystery
A wonderfully contemplative piece of work. The second movement -- the void itself, I'm imagining it --- is my favorite. It's dark, but I think that is the perfect way to address the topic. Very well done,

It is hard to put into sound the concept of nothingness.

Thanks!
The clarinet has always to me sounded plaintative, and it was the perfect choice here to ground the synth.

Spacerace challenge?
How did I miss this? This stuff is right in my wheelhouse too, dang it!
Anyhow, your stuff is all so cool, been enjoying lt. This piece is truly out in the expanse of darkness and vacuum. I really get the feeling of floating out there untethered to anything feeling from this.

Great Stuff John!

Very trippy, speculative music
Not only prolific the Leviathan is imaginative and evokes effortlessly (?) many different atmospheres, or lack of same. Well done Adam.

Excellent!
I think I like the second movement best, the sound of nothingness, as it were, the void. The clarinet moving over the spacey pads is most effective.
Really nice mix and yet another for the new playlist. Thanks!

You've got
yourself, and us, a little space masterpiece here, I think. Really cool sounds and a clear composition idea, which works really well. Also, you put my headphones to the test with those wondrous bass sounds - and they passed :-)

Thanks for the download,
Henke

Moving through space...
Hi Adam. Like the way you move through the different interpretations of space in this piece. Space starts of as a busy place but things get all solemn in the void. Glad to see he made it out the other side. Take care, Peter.

the void itself
the core of this piece seems very sombre and introspective - the voices work really well to evoke the story in the description

but: what's really cool (in my opinion) is that this piece could be rewritten to be played by an orchestra and it would be very emotionally dark and powerful

really. i can even hear the violins sweeping up and down the harmonics to get an effect similar to what you present here

this is powerfully dark. i imagine the feelings of anguish, regret, and sorrow, perhaps felt by someone who has recently lost a loved-one

thanks

the genre could be "film scoring" as well

Got plenty
of spacey throbbiness and whirlyness for me .....as The Cat in red dwarf said "Great big swirly thing alert"....I like it .....from one Void to another.....

Very effective
work Adam. Love the mix. Felt like I was in a movie house watching this unfold before me. You capture the vast empty and loneliness of space perfectly. Love the middle clarinet section.

Black and Worm Holes
Mystical and contemplative. Nice rendering of vastness and yet substance. Simple in the use of tones but not simplistic.

You convey and unfolding of wonder and awe here that is quite remarkable.

Be well,
Doug
