Star Songs

by Julia Hensley

 

Star Songs is a suite of six ambient songs inspired by pictures of the universe taken by NASA.

These accompanied Star Systems, a show of my paintings November 9 - December 6, 2013 at LxWxH Gallery in Seattle. The music played during visiting hours and was available as a very limited edition of cd's, individually produced and packaged.

I like combining analogue and digital sounds, especially my 1962 Gibson ES 125TC and my midi controller, a small Alesis keyboard. I also use a lot of modified found sounds. This project was recorded entirely in GarageBand.

Thanks to Gregory Gilmore for mastering and production consultation.
