The track is from an early instrumental album “Red Reflections” titled “Crying Out”.
Binaural beats embedded in the music, if you’ve ever experienced the psychology practice of EMDR this may be of some interest to you!
Released in 2019 as part of the Origins album.
I’ve always had a thing for rotating things that resemble the motion of cogs turning in the mind, windmills spinning in the breeze, space probes flying through space, gyrating for their time-delay integrated image systems…(like Juno).
So it took over 20 years to track down one of my favourire children’s TV series- eventually discovering some terrible quality rips from someone’s VHS on YouTube, excellent!
But where’s the official release? I did some research only to find out that the reason there had not been an official home VHS or DVD release was down to the copyrights “being stuck in litigation limbo” with NZTV for over 20 years!
So no VHS or DVD releases until the late 2000s.
One must understand: this TV program was aired ONCE in the UK in the 1980s- of those few Saturday mornings that I did get to watch TV, I accidentally stumbled upon the very first episode which was a blessing, and got immediately hooked. Sci-Fi kids TV was rare.
I’m no 3D designer, so I really have no idea what I am doing and that’s why I find it fun to do. Using a demo version of Shapr3D on my iPad Pro, I created a series of models.
Below are some of the stages of the model design as well as some clips of source material from which this device originates.
This isn’t my first replica built either- I did build a replica when I was a kid out of cardboard and electronics, but of course, no photographs and nothing survived!
Over the course of it’s airing, Saturday mornings were delightfully punctuated by this eerie and seemingly malevolent device’s wishes to draw enough energy by [no spoilers] to make contact with its home/owners- I highly recommend watching the mini-TV series “Children of the Dog Star”, just for the fact its great B-quality Sci-Fi. See what you come away with- try and understand what it would have been like for an impressionable 7 year old like me.
Created on new year’s eve 2017. Perhaps a reflection of our long journey so far.
Travelling between planets in suspended animation, its time for the (fictional) lone captain to awaken the rest of the crew… Happy 2018!
Visuals recorded, composited, drawn and rendered solely with the very finite resources of an iPhone 5s using a very early version of Luma Fusion.
The music itself fits into a 64k executable because its only 4.7k! Created in Renoise with Clinkster synthesizer and home brew synth patches. This would become my last track ever composed on a conventional PC. The iPhone itself had now become the most powerful device in my possession. RIP.
