Astronauts 5

Today I create a new category, named 2009 Music Demos, where I’ll publish totally new music tracks made with the latest gears but with the same talent behind: myself 🙂

These tracks are demonstrations of my skills and creative ideas and in each post I’ll explain the inspiration that moves them, the images (like the Astronauts) I would like you to see, while listening to them, and the feelings.

Astronauts and Funk Music

This first post is dedicated to big 80s space operas, movies, novels, astronauts and sci-fi culture. This is also a trip to old good 80s with their catchy rhythms, synths and guitars.

This first demo starts with a space choir, an opening orchestra and choir theme, I can say epic and grand, that creates images of galaxies, shuttles, astronauts and the infinity of the universe.

The choir evolves into a rock instrumental piece, with 80s synth effects that add a spacey feel to the entire track, yes, again more astronauts music. I can name it “space rock”.

Yes, as you see I like everything about space topics, astronauts, spaceships and similar.

The next style is jazz, a universal style that will never end to please our ears, today, and in the next centuries.

Synths are back in an 80s pop mix, while a really catching funk part ends the demonstration, making us really uplifting and excited.

I dedicate this music work to Richard Garriott, Lord British in Ultima and significant figure in the video game industry. And lately, also an astronaut!

On October 12, 2008, astronaut Garriott launched aboard Soyuz TMA-13 to the International Space Station as a self-funded tourist, returning safely 12 days later aboard Soyuz TMA-12.

    Definitely heard some “Jump” in there. Richard’s a very lucky man to be able to go into space and back.
    Keep up the great work Manuel!

    yep, Richard is fantastic. Lately he is working on a new game, named Shroud of the Avatar. Seems he still has a lot to tell about games and his wonderfully created world.
