On this Wednesday night's edition of Nightscaping Radio on Stillstream: I'll be featuring tracks from the album "Inside The Hollow Realm" by Numina and Caul, celebrating its 10th anniversary of its release in 2014. Also, new to the show - music by Frore, Stillstream's Featured Artist of The Month for April; new dark tracks by Cousin Silas, music by Disturbed Earth, and stuff by That Bald Guy™...err...Har. Starts at 7:00PM
In this track I was inspired by the book written by Antoine de Saint Exupéry:
In the early part of the 20th century the first pioneer-pilots of the airmail service often gave their lives on long night flights over continents and oceans. They used compasses for directions and the stars, and demonstrated an incredible sense of duty.
The main theme is: ...whether doing what is necessary to meet a valuable long-term goal is more important than an individual's life.
I may add lyrics or a poem to introduce the piece...
“Clear skies, no wind....”
Shadows of valleys and plains
Strips of long enamel clouds
Ripples of icy blue.....etc...
The cello part is replayed here live by my friend Patrick Tapio Johnson.
