Recorded in Whisper Virtual Studio, 2019.

I found that this track, while a fully standalone piece of work, has been influenced by a classic 1992 computer game called Star Control 2 that I'd revisited lately. The game actually had very good sounds as well for its time and utilized tracker-created (wavetable-based) music. On the other hand, some aspects of the track resemble certain older pieces of my own from the 1990's (especially some of those placed on the "Vermillion Blue" album), and it might be one step on a journey to remaking those old tunes some time in the future.

Another person noticed a similarity to music by Jon & Vangelis, and I agree, there's something here that points to that direction as well.

In fact, the track had no direct connection to space at all in the beginning, but when I realized the influence of the game on the result, actually first when even my work on the cover art was quite far already, I decided to still take the theme a bit further and use some related references in the cover art as well (hopefully in a subtle enough way). The cover art is my first ever to feature a 3D-modeled human character as well (originally created for a project called "Stargazer" back in 2017).
