The Cosmonauts death drift.

His suit: his shroud; his capsule: his sarcophagus.

"...And So The Cosmos Became His Tomb."

*Rough cut - Take One.
Drop me some words. Pass around. Etc.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is one of the most powerful songs I've heard from you. It's so dense and atmospheric that you almost feel trapped inside the spacesuit as it plays.

Something else about this is that while there is percussion at work, I didn't notice it. Considering how much I love what you do with samples, take this as a compliment. You put so much emphasis on creating atmosphere for this song that the beat didn't matter to me. I was so focused on the guitar and the density of the effects you applied that the beats and glitches got woven right into the song seamlessly.

This is incredible. I kinda already listened to the full song on your Soundcloud and shared it, but I can't wait to hear what you do next.

Lapse responds:

You think so? That's pretty cool. I was going for something powerful / dreary-ish / something that would crawl inside you and make you feel it.

I didn't want the beats up front. I have been focusing more on ambient tones lately. I'm glad you notice these things.

I appreciate you passing it on, man. Thank you. Always more music to make!

Did the Cosmonaut die? Or is he just adrift and thinking that he's going to die...

At the end it sounds like he may have just come to peace with the shitty situation.
Come to think of it, this whole thing sounds like something you'd hear if you were in position
to take the vastness of the cosmos in and witness the beauty of it all.

If this song conveys the feelings that the Cosmonaut had before he was admitted to his tomb, I should think that all of us would rather feel death on this sort of emotional plane rather than the fear we usually associate with death and dying, hell, even living...

This one brought me places.

Lapse responds:

He's adrift, for sure. Waiting. Disbelief. Panicking. Then, yes, settling and coming to peace. The very last seconds of the song representing a "loss of transmission" tone.

I had been doing some reading on the "Phantom Cosmonaut" conspiracies. Some people believe that there may have been Soviet Cosmonauts that have died in space and were covered up. One was reported to have floated away from earth. There's another, a woman, who burned up in her return capsule and was apparently recorded as it happened >> The Torre Bert Recordings. Check it out. It's a pretty interesting.

I had also had a buddy tell me a month ago or so of a short story he read called "Kaleidoscope", by Ray Bradburry. Which chronicled a similar tale of some astronauts that get stranded in earths orbit. The story unfolds as they all talk to each other over their comms. They ultimately fall back down to earth and burn up in the atmosphere. I still need to get my hands on that.

And finally: Jeremy Geddes paintings. Phenomenal.

So, my head has been all abuzz with thoughts like this. A good track to craft as my Winter depression keeps me locked in, heh.

Oh, and this is the first take, too. I've been working on an alternate, more refined, and better flowing cut.

Thanks a lot for the review, Boullie.
