We take a musical journey through the alien scapes of outer space, innerspace, and underwater, with tracks by Robert Logan, Philip Wilkerson, Robert Rich, Stephen Briggs and Disturbed Earth, Joe McMahon, Bridge to Imla, Bing Satellites, and a new track by anantakara.
We also pay tribute to Wolfgang Gsell, who changed his cosmic address this week.
The scapes of outer space are mysterious, often beautiful, often terrifying. So, too, is the deep underwater of our home planet. Today we explore both. The late Wolfgang Gsell, whose music fits right in with this theme, has been one of the finest creators of ambient / space music, a talented photographer, radio host, and a genuinely nice person. He will be greatly missed, and the music he leaves the world makes him immortal.
Enjoy your new cosmic address, Wolfgang, and thanks for the music.

In the words of the composer: This track brought to you by the lexicon vortex and “how slow can the sequencer go?” Each track here was recorded blind, with all the other tracks muted. I didn’t hear until I finished all of them.
