She’s Got Dragons

Who me? Game of Thrones freak? Naah. That’s only part of the story.

I did like Khaleesi and thought that Jason Momoa nailed the ancient conqueror role. But they are only depicting things that, more or less, really happened. Alexander the Great. Cyrus the Great. Cleopatra.

Dragons may be fiction but we have a pretty heavy inheritance we have to face.

June

So ends a pretty terrible month in the news. I started this at the beginning of the month. At some point I realized that it was mirroring the tragic headlines that dominated a good part of June.

Galatea

My latest venture into electronica. This was pretty clearly influenced by Brian Eno’s “Atmospheres and Soundtracks” and “Music for Airports.” And maybe John Klemmer’s “Touch.” But I wanted to make it my own, give it my own twist, and not just try to copy the great pioneers of ambient music and smooth jazz.

While composing this, I had a vision of this guy sitting in a 2001-esque space station somewhere, maybe orbiting, definitely alone.

Enlil – God of the Storm

I started working on this one, not really knowing where the inspiration was coming from. Later, I picked up an ancient history DVD. During the description of Enlil, the Mesopotamian god of the storm, I knew that I’d found the title for this track.
