I have tons of snips of music, and occasionally I go digging thru my library to find pieces that might fit together. That happened with “I Just Want to Fade Away” and “Deep Blue,” which just happened to both be in D keys (D Mixolydian and D Dorian, to be precise), very similar tempos (69 and 67 bpm), and in theme (both watery). I’m pretty happy with the result.
I love this sound. I remember it from my youth, watching the original Star Trek series. This sound captures the calm, meditative feel I always remember from cruising with the crew of the Enterprise through the depths of interstellar space…
One-shot lift. Great for looping, as-is.
Snagged from the beginning of the 2009 JJ Abrams Star Trek reboot film.
Again, I woke up this morning with this melody in my head. I added the counterpoint, then the bass.
I love the feeling of this one– very happy… And it sounds like a family singing together… and it’s Father’s Day, and my niece’s 16th birthday and my roommate’s daughter’s 17th birthday… And it sounds like it could be a round…
So, I named it “Family Cycle,” because happiness is the ongoing life of family love… <3
I found myself singing this melody after listening (several times) to Craig Pruess & Dya Singh’s album “Sacred Chants of the Sikhs,” in which Singh sings the most beautiful, powerful melodies. I know that Sheila Chandra connected Indian and Celtic melodies many years ago, but this was the first time that I discovered the connection myself, firsthand.
