A track almost entirely composed with ESA’s sounds from space

Finally, I finished my first track that is almost entirely composed with the European Space Agency’s collected sounds from space – it was my concern ever since my colleague Daniel Scuka brought ESA’s Soundcloud channel to life and invited me to help him operate the platform, to continuously reach out for new sounds from within ESA and of ESA’s missions afar from Earth.

“Wailing and Failing” uses the following sounds from ESA’s Soundcloud (all of them are available under remixable Creative Commons licences):

The track as a whole is derived from an improvisation with Live and my 11-year old daughter Rosa playing the drums along.

Remix by Das Blaue Monster & Free Music Contest 2012

With a lot of electronica and dubtechno in mind, Das Blaue Monster did a great remix of my track ‘Riftzone’ as part of Free Music Contest 2012.

The original of this track also won a release on the Free Music Sampler 2012 which is availbale as free download (donations welcome) or Digipak-CD (2,50 Euro) here. It features bands and musicians from all over the world. Props and thanks go to Musikpiraten/Christian Hufgard for the great project!

Here’s the remix …

… and here’s the original:

Kudos and many thanks, Blaues Monster!
