Wow, this reminds me of some epic sci-fi soundtracks, ala Hans Zimmer and occasionally Philip Glass

I happened to be in MD one summer when the 17 year cicadas came out to make their noise. Walking around I felt I was on the set of an old sci-fi flick set on an alien planet.

This brought me back.

Yes sampled the cicadas at daughters soccer practice. Found they are only active certain times of the day (8pm in this case). The sound they make is the embodiment of summer for me.

Love the cicadas in here! Did you sample those yourself? Awesome soundscapes. Otherworldly at times. This would be great for a cinematic piece!

@sandbags
thanks sir, I added some cicadas to the super slowed down guitar.
Also new comment.

This is another of those tracks where I look for the ‘double favourite’ button in vain.

Oh you’ve outdone yourself this time. What a wonderful piece. By three minutes I was being propelled through the inky void towards unknown stars. I could have listened to this forever.

Wow, very Valles Marineris. Tender, other-worldly sounds.
