Dispatch from Sector Ten

Just discovered on an old unlabeled audio CD-R.

It's odd how you can spend hours toiling over a recording only to completely forget about it later on (yeah, I'm assuming others here have experienced that phenomenon.)

Also, as I just mentioned to my wife, the problem with recording your own music is that you get a little tired a hearing it yourself by the time you get it into some form that you feel like sharing.

She pointed out that the same thing applies to writing and editing. Familiarity breeding contempt/distance makes the heart grow fonder sort of situation going on there.

Anyway, a little science fiction theme for your edification/irritation. Thanks for giving it a listen. Watch out for face huggers.

I thought for a second that this could fit into the May challenge, but I guess it doesn't quite. But it made me wonder what the very early recordings of someone who does industrial music sound like. Is this a very early one? Nice atmosphere. I like the flute-ish sound that comes in a little after 3:50, and the percussion at 4:25. If you want to post something from very early on, I'd love to hear it!

The string pattern in the right channel built such anticipation that I kept waiting for the song to really start... and by the time I realized that it never would, I was enjoying myself. This is cool.

Thanks for the comments. This dates back to 2002 - or 2003. I'm going back through some old CD-Rs and finding some stuff I'd basically forgotten about. I'll try to put some of that up here at some point.

If you cut out a snippet of this, I think it would be great sci-fi chase music. As is, though, yeah, that would be one hell of a long chase.
