SPECIAL NOTE: - On the song, "Star Traveller" (track 8) - I wanted to capture as best as I could, the feeling of an exhilarating cosmic journey through the depths of space. As a composer, it is sometimes a challenge to convey the emotions that inspire the music and finding the right touch to enhance the listener's interpretation of that experience. In the quiet section, one can hear the occasional "clicks" in the recording. This was intentional, as to emulate the sounds of outer space (shooting meteors passing by...etc...) heard on a radio telescope.
