“Musica Universalis” is two works of otherworldly Musique Concrete. The title track is based on the concept of Music of the Spheres and is composed primarily of sounds generated by astronomical objects.
The “maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes” of the final track echoes the Lovecraftian mythos of the blind idiot god Azathoth and his mad dance at the center of the
universe.

  1. I need to give both tracks a good listening with headphones on to pick up all the subtleties. That and maybe in complete darkness. Or a single candle.
    So far I think I prefer “Dance of the Daemon Sultan” although I do like them both. Especially the way both tracks come into being and
    build as they transform. But that is what I remember and like about your other pieces as well. The evolution and dissolution at the end
    of “Musica Univeralis” is quite good. The horn work and mesmerizing qualities on “Dance”. They both have some great cavernous, earthy
    tones in them that really set the mood. Along with making them somewhat unnerving. Excellent. Thanks again for sharing. Great cover as well!
