Music for the Ears , Astronomy for the Eyes , Both for the Soul.

aka Musica Universalis.

Musica Universalis is one of my electronic projects that I started a few years ago , although I've been writing and recording for quite a while longer. I chose the name Musica Universalis because it seemed to resonate (no pun intended ...well maybe a little :) ) with me and what I do. As astronomy and music are two of my favorite things.

Musica Universalis (the concept , not my project) is also known as Music of the Spheres and is basically the idea that the planets and Sun and Moon and celestial objects in general have their own tones or frequencies that they vibrate at and thus could be thought of each having a 'musical' tone to it. Plato had suggested that music and astronomy were twinned studies , music for the ears and astronomy for the eyes. I've added 'both for the soul' to the end of that to basically sum up my project.

The birth of the Singularity. Will it be an awesome and wondrous sight to behold that will help bring human civilization to new heights. Or ... will it be a horrific and terrible event that will be the beginning of the end of humanity, because A.I.'s creators didn't bother to stop and think that it might not be such a good idea.

This track is set in a cyberpunk world in the near future where humans upgrade or enhance themselves with technology. The line between human and machine is increasingly blurred. It's a first-timer's outing and discovery of new tech. What to buy? ; What to enhance? ; Too many choices , not enough credits. Technology is a tool , it's how we use it that is good or bad and whether or not the world we create is a utopian one or a dystopian one. That is a choice ultimately up to us. Transhumanism would have humans to become machines , to become technology rather than just using technology to enhance our lives. In transhumanism it is seen as a necessary evolutionary step to 'save' humanity (ironically) . Maybe the only real way of saving humanity is by staying human. These may be real choices we have to make one day. Let's hope we choose wisely.

The Ebb and Flow of Life. This is one of my earlier works from years ago (2001). Back then , many times i would sit down , press record and just start playing the piano. This is what came out that day. This is one of my more personal recordings , as it is basically one of my journal entries from that day , I had just used a piano instead of a pen.

Almost There is a mellow , chilled out track full of synths and arpeggiated chords mixed with a dash of euphoria. Almost There is also a bit of a tribute to one of my favorite electronic artists and one of my major influences , Jean Michel Jarre. This track's original title was Electro45 (Almost There).

This is definitely one of my darker tracks , and a bit of an experimental one at that. The track represents the dystopian view of trans-humanism. Which , in my view , is the attempt at technological transcendence over the human condition , which I definitely see as the darker path. All tracks were recorded in one take per track , so it's a bit of a raw recording with the exception of the drum track which was added afterwards. Dark Alley (A Cyberpunk Vision) Neon Lights above Illuminating a damp and dark alley Blinding sights Visions of the Otherworld Induced by sensory overloading tech and various other substances. Hi-tech drugs for a Hi-tech world Jacked-in and pumped up Electro Impulses straight up the spine and into the brain. Electrotrip to induce visions of paradise in the post-human dystopian world. This is a back alley in Huxley's Brave New World.

Last Hope is a slow and thoughtful track with an underlying melancholy , but also there, is one last glimmer of hope , inviting you forward. This is one of my older compositions and doesn't include any electronic elements , as much of what i wrote in the past was more classical based. This track features a string ensemble only at this point , and I'm not sure if I will add any more to it or not , as I rather like it as it is , even if a bit minimalistic at this point. There is one part of the song that always gets me and sends a bit of a chill or goosebumps or something like that. It's just something about the way a string orchestra sounds i suppose and/or certain chord progressions.
