I am extremely happy to announce the first single of 4 compositions from my new release, The Last Flight of the Voidship Remainder, due out on Solid Melts this September. An awesome review of track 2, The Sacrifice of the Voidship Heart of Hearts is up on Tiny Mix Tapes this morning. This piece is probably my favorite thing I’ve written in many years, so please enjoy!
A note from the composer regarding this piece and its counterparts: “We will never forget the life-forms lost in pursuit of the exploration of interstitial space, brave members of the 5-ship void-fleet of the 1st Human Sodality (“Strength Through Toil; Victory Through Resource Extraction”). This composition, commissioned by the Grand Council for Arts and Memory of the Sodality, invokes the tale of the 2nd ship in the fleet (the 3rd constructed), the VX-III, Heart of Hearts, to achieve true void-flight, and, like its predecessor, to be tragically, utterly, tracelessly, lost.” —DW; Year of the Sodality, X,α,X
