Mirage (Tracks 1 to 4) reflect my mood in
the studio during this time, my most accomplished work to date.
The remaining tracks are bonus tracks included in the complete download.
Track 5 – I have also included as a tribute to Jean Michelle Jarre, Robert Miles and Mike Oldfield “Children of Earth”.
Track 6 – A tribute to Gary Numan on Where’s Gary.
Track 7 – A tribute to the ceramic Poppies which toured the U.K.
Track 8 – A tribute to Kraftwerk
Track 9 – A refelction of those who have left us, but still feel right by our side looking out for us.
Track 10 – Respect the earlier machines, because we would not be with the current technology we have today.. however some good – some bad.. same as it ever was.
Track 11 – A tribute to the rave scene as years gone by, now like flowers growing on a pyramid – a rare sight.
Track 12 – A tribute to the world space missions, especially the shuttle missions, and also a nod and wink to the Rush track Countdown
Track 13 – The six planets is a tribute to the original six planets discovered in our solar sytem, before telescopes became more powerful.
This release will be made available on CD this year, this will include all 13 tracks on one CD. (TOTAL 79:11)
Enjoy this music, it will take you on a journey, an emotional journey, best listened to in a dark room with headpones, alternatively, lying in the grass looking up at the stars.
