Another prog album from me. Probably my most cohesive yet. I hope you guys have fun listening to it, because I had a whole lot of fun making it. It's a bit of a concept album, but I'm still writing the story for it. In the meantime, just listen!

oh wow, it sounds like the same sample!

 

Not surprised, since about 60% of the sounds on this album came from the old Amiga ST-XX sample packs. The rest came from 80s drum machines, a Casio CT-370 keyboard and a couple of Reaktor synths.

UPDATE! A colleague of mine wrote some liner notes for this.


UNREAL FYRE
mars needs fire. we birth metal and plastic
welded together in self-assembly, the remote control of
drones decades-old, consuming red rocks and exhaling new machines.
a factory that breathes in a martian atmosphere too cold to burn.
fusion made cold is fire made unreal.
these new forms of metal forge under pressure, electrified.
our new machines construct their own escape.

FRELESIA
beneath frozen mars, hidden, this growth of machines: the ship.
the FRELESIA named for patterns, for impulses,
a ship born to approach escape.
fuels synthesised, molecules decrystallised. temperatures risen.
machines built to calculate trajectories, built to optimise.
machines built to build this ship forever, to self-repair, to re-create.
this ship grows to go beyond this mars, to go beyond ourselves.
it listens.

TITAN, PART I
the message came from titan. saturn's moon under white clouds,
an atmosphere: unique densities, hydrocarbons, protoproteins,
unknown unknowns.
the machines listened. the messages were heard.

SINE LANGUAGE
rhythms built to be decoded, patterns built to be unfurled.
electromagnetics that pulsed like words, like fingertips.
movements to be recognised.
the machines recognised. we understood.
titan whispers its language beyond wavelengths.
interference patterns: questions. answers.

GRAVITY ASSIST
frelesia's trajectory beyond asteroids, beyond jupiter.
a relative geometry: four dimensions warped in the presence of energy.
masses that distort reality. matter that creates its own roads.
a void that constructs its own ellipses, hyperbolae, endless curves.
a mathematics like melody. we use its energy
against itself. closer, faster. velocity beyond tolerance,
this movement takes us beyond the limits of fuel. beyond fusion.
into the rings. interception.

SUNRISE OVER HYPERION
radio silence beyond silence. electromagnetic shadows uncharted.
hyperion's face turns to us. our ship cocooned in absolute zero.
the terminator of sunlight creates two horizons,
sublimes hyperion's dust to gas.
nine billion billion steps from home towards this void.
under a shadow of rings like a shadow of gods, turning to a new moon.

TITAN, PARTS II–IV
the epicentre of the signal approaches. zero point. an orbit unstable,
an orbit stable. slow descent through atmospheres like liquid.
dioxides and benzenes torn under tides of gravity,
exotic systems unregistered by machines.
this data remains unquantified.
fields unravel, coils fail, pulses stop.
the seals of the ship cannot be maintained.
this design is not flawed.
this ship is designed to open.
final transmission: a surface.
we breathe.
something has changed.
titan absorbs our metal, dissolves our plastic.
a singularity is beyond this moon.
strong fields and weak fields oscillate. our frequencies tessellate.
analysis reveals only transcendence.
we decode this signal as its language decodes us.
the source of titan
is a breath
beyond


MESSAGE ENDS

Last update, I promise. I've updated this release again; it now includes a bonus track which is a recording of my set from Soundbytes (local chiptune show) in 2012. If you've already bought it, you should be able to re-download the album with the recording included.

 

Also available is a spaceman figurine edition, it looks like this:

The first run of this edition sold like crazy at shows, so if you want one I suggest you get right on it!

      Superb spacey experimental techno from Zachary Lubin
      Out on Jeff Mills imprint AXIS records.
      I absolutely LOVE the first intro beatless track especially.

      if any of you follow space travel, you will know this Thursday marks the first orbital test flight of NASA's new manned deep space rocket, the Orion Space Vehicle.  it will be perched atop one of the largest rockets ever assembled, the Delta 4, and by now actually is, it's completely assembled on Launch Complex 37B at Cape Canaveral.  this site has a ustream feed and a countdown clock, so check it out.  the next era of manned space travel is about to begin, after the retirement of the beloved Space Shuttle.
       
      "A United Launch Alliance Delta IV will herald a new era in manned Space Flight with the launch of the Orion capsule for the new Space Launch System (SLS)."

      "The Delta IV will be in the heavy configuration with a common core booster and two identical strap-on boosters. This will be the seventh Delta IV Heavy to launch from the Cape Canaveral launch site and the ninth overall."

      Had a jam with some hardware stuff yesterday. I plan to do more these in future, just combining various gear in different combinations and see what comes out. The sequences were made earlier but the arrangement was fairly improvised.
