This is the first album from a body of work I've been hearing in my head since 2012. Around that time I was becoming increasingly overwhelmed by the nonstop onslaught of New York, so I started thinking about sound as a meditative and transformational medium; basically as a way to calm my eyeballs and counter-stimulate my brain.
The tracks included in the first volume of "SPACE ON EARTH" were sourced from a variety of places: "20160628" was recorded using Moog's Animoog iOS app; "MALI SADIO" includes a drawn-way-out clip of Kandia Kouyaté's "Badjourou" (which may or may not be about the legend of a friendship between a hippopotamus and a woman); and the last two tracks were sourced from telemetry recordings from NASA's Pegasus and one of the Interplanetary Monitoring Platform satellites. The audio was manipulated primarily using GRM Tools and Audacity's "Paulstretch" effect.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating, editing, and listening to it.
