We're Going Home — Space Fantasy

Recommended Posts

The ending of Voltron Season 6, and this picture of Tracy Caldwell Dyson inspired me to compose something that sounds like an epic journey back home through outer space. Let me know what you think, and thanks for listening!

I rather enjoyed this one too. :)

Lovely and warm, with just enough epic for excitement. This feels like a Metroid overworld track or a Star Ocean theme - and I hope you don't take offense to that, as I know you don't remix much anymore.

My only real comments are:

  • In the intro, the horn sounds way more present than the background strings (ie. the strings sound a bit narrow). This is probably subjective.
  • Not sure about the lead vocal fill at 1:13. It's the only place where a lead vocal stands out, so it seems a bit out of place to me.

I really like the subtle build until the violin drops at 0:52 - I think this is a perfect escalation of mood. The parts that really grabbed me was the little fill you have at 0:32 over the horn and the ending; that last instrument made me think you were going to break into something sounding a bit Southern Europe or Middle Eastern. I think this would sound pretty darn awesome following an orchestra, but only a suggestion.

Anyway, sounds great! Hope to hear more on this.

Why would I take offense to that? Those a great soundtracks to be compared to. :-)

I fought with that and and the synth pad for a very long time. I knew I wanted that particular synth pad, which was broken up into three different segments, but it sounded too narrow. Tried panning, reverbing, delaying, etc. but for whatever reason, I guess that's as wide as I could make it.

The duduk is basically my homage to the Battlestar: Galactica score.
