Sometimes I play around with certain melodies, chords, and note patterns for quite a while before a song emerges out of it. This song is an example of that. I played the opening guitar riff, or riffs similar to it, for well over a year before a song solidified out of it.
As I wrote this song and listened to it, I got feelings and images of a man looking out of a spacecraft window out at the heavens. Wonder and unease at the vastness of the universe, profound isolation, weightlessness.
That's what I get out of this song, anyway.
The instrument that comes into the mix at 1:00 is supposed to have vibrato, but for whatever reason PowerTab (the program I use to make these songs) doesn't want it to.
