mmHg — The Planets: Mercury

March 19, 2012 9:19 AM

Second part of my set inspired by Gustav Holst (the first was Venus), an electronic Planets suite inspired by astronomy rather than mythology. Here's Mercury. A spastic and rapid synth represents the planet's rapid orbit. A out-of-control mood represents the seeming descent into the Sun on approach. Erratic drum fills and interruptions represent the bizarre climate of the planet, being one of the hottest and coldest in the Solar System, and due to its rapid orbit sometimes having the Sun rise twice without setting.
