It was fun.

Members of the choir, in order of appearance:


I added orchestral percussions and several synths

I usually take the assignment quite seriously, the challenge is the main point for me.
So excuse me to take a free interpretation this week.

I expanded it using a project I’ve been working on these past few days, whose working title coincidentally was “Lunar Soundscape”. I used the 20 sec tracks and the Lunar tracks (not in the same key or tempo, but nobody cares, right?) and combined and moved them all to make this 2 minute lunar vignette.
