Titan (MM007)

Album artwork, photography by NASA

A concept album about a manned mission to Saturn’s moon Titan.

I decided to make the album based on 3 previously released pieces of music – “Sunrise on Titan” (Summit, Vol. I), “Sunset on Titan” (Vol. 1) and “a Day on Titan” (Volume III).

All three tracks have been remixed or reworked from the midi files for this album and put together with 5 new compositions to form a journey to one of humanity’s possible second homes.

The album is available to download for free on my Free Downloads page. Download includes MP3 and FLAC files along with a CD tray inlay, non continuous mixes of each of the 8 tracks and a single mix of track 5 “Final Checks”.

  1. Orbiting Titan I (Prologue)
  2. Sunrise on Titan (Titan Pt. 1)
  3. Technical Issues (Titan Pt. 2)
  4. A Day On Titan (Titan Pt. 3)
  5. Final Checks (Titan Pt. 4)
  6. Sunset on Titan (Titan Pt.5)
  7. Escape Velocity (Titan Pt. 6)
  8. Orbiting Titan II (Epilogue)
