This was written for a short animation by Kuroseishin.
The title was inspired by a dusty old telescope and the amazing sights it provided.
Created with Kontakt 3 / Cubase 5.
Thanks for listening!
I also can't believe it's somehow less than 1 with 100 votes. Ridiculous.
I can see some of the below criticisms being valid ... only, as you said, this is background music for an animation. If you knew in advance what would be happening when, then sure it should be more varied to fit the changing scenes. But considering what you were asked for was probably a simple loop, much more variety, particularly in rhythm and dynamics would make the music stand out more at times ... which you don't want for *background* music.
Thanks skyood! I cut out several minutes when I made it into a loop.
Maybe I'll upload a longer, non-looped version.
Prime case for getting rid of the rating system
How the hell has this piece got 0.89 with 100 votes?
The sooner they remove the voting system for audio the better as far as I'm concerned. I really like this, It's nice and dense without sounding muddled. I can imagine this working really nicely with some steam punk style animation. I agree a little with the reviewer below, maybe some rhythmic variations in the backing could have helped but 3 is incredibly harsh. I've heard several mic'd solo instruments in an orchestral context and I don't think the rules apply when making music for multimedia.
Great effort, I really like it!
Thanks for taking the time to listen and review!
Improvement really needed!
Good day, gentleman,
this piece has a lot to improve on.
First of all, the rhythmic pattern is repetitive, try using variations of it or change it completely throughout the piece. Also a flaw I would like to state is the lack of varied dynamics. You can use changing time signatures like %u215E, %u215D or else to achieve a stretching or buckling in your structure - thus making it much more varied.
You use a unprepossessing instrumentation. The harp and flutes would never sound that loud in a real playing situation - especially because of the horn, which plays pretty loud. So I suggest to double those instruments with others - the harp with pizzicati strings and the flutes with other woodwinds for example. Another thing you can alter are the strings. They always play in the same low range - so i would suggest to let them play in different ranges or different playing styles. Try to use more of the whole range your ensemble/orchestra has.
All of your instruments sound pretty close. I suggest to give them some more reverb, place them in the room and do not forget about the propagation delay. The Harp is pretty loud, which is not possible to be heard like that in a real orchestra with that kind of instrumentation. You also need a much more wider sound, because in your piece it is mainly concentrated in the middle.
I hope we could help you.

:] Love the superb syncopation ! This score works very well on it's own as is, but man, I would just love to hear some tom waits gregorian chanting softly in the background / Great work , as usual!
man your music is fantastic!
i've listened to all of your stuff and i can't believe i havent heard it before! your use of strings and horns is so well done - - you never hear that in anyones music any more - - expect to be hearing from me alot! - - i have a lot of game projects on the horizon that your music style would be amazing for! keep up the stellar work!
Thanks for the encouragement!
I'm available for weddings, Bar Mitzvahs, lawn care and any game projects you have on the horizon.
