Back on the horse again

While I had indeed made my Silver Screen Star Trek and Man of Steel albums on the new computer, due to odd timing and equipment issues, I hadn't really gotten around to working on it since my grandfather died. A mix idea had been tossing about in my head, a piece that was inspired somewhat by the turmoil of the past few months. Today, I put all of the computer affairs in order and started working on a new album.

Most of the music here concentrates of being melodic and florid. The disc is along the same lines and my Songs of the Heavens and its follow-up, but I did not consider it part of that series. This album is also divided up into a "side one" and "side two," so as to break up the listening somewhat; each side opens and closes with a work by the same composer, Morricone in the case of side one and Barry in the case of side two. I like to give the mix a shape of its own. Otherwise, I'm not writing much in the way of notes for this disc as there wasn't much in the way of editing and I think that the track listing mostly speaks for itself.
