"Mercury from the album "The Universe"


Mercury


Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk about ‘Mercury’ and what to look forward to with the music pieces on the upcoming album “The Universe”.

Today I wanted to talk briefly about “Mercury” from the upcoming album “The Universe”.  Mercury is named after the swift Roman messenger god and is the closest planet to the sun, being about 36 million miles. That doesn’t necessarily mean it is the hottest planet.  I will cover that later.  It is about 3,000 miles in diameter and is 48 million miles from the earth.  It is pretty colorless and has no known moons and no atmosphere.  It can be seen from the in the twilight hours with the naked eye, and is the smallest main planet in our solar system. 

The gravity on mercury is so weak that if you weighed 150 pounds on earth you would weigh only 57 pounds on mercury.  It is not an active planet and is considered a dead planet.  It has an iron core which makes up about 60 percent of the planets mass, making it the densest of all the planets.  It does however have a strange calendar, its year is about 88 earth days making it the fastest of any planet to orbit the sun.  A day on mercury however is much longer being the slowest at about 176 earth days.  This makes the day longer than its year on the planet.

Having this elliptical rotation makes the planet temperatures vary in extreme conditions.  If you were standing on the surface it would appear three times as big in the sky as we see on earth and 7 times hotter.  Because of its elliptical or oval shaped orbit the sun appears to shrink in the sky, giving it a double sunrise. On the sun side it is 810 degrees Fahrenheit, on the other side it is 300 degrees below zero. 

Do to the slow rotation it has a long time to heat up and cool down.  There is even ice at the poles that never see the sun.  Because there is no atmosphere it is always a starry night and without the atmosphere to guard it from meteors and objects making it the most heavily cratered planet in the solar system. During the Voyager missions they were able to pick up the local sounds of the planets and surrounding satellite moons.   
This is because of the surrounding magnetic field.  Mercury has a growl sound like a monster or dragon.
I wrote this as a moving motion piece as the planet mercury moves around the sun.  I am starting the music on the album making it more active and busy from the sun as we move out of the solar system becoming less intense or active, using various instruments and unique sounds. 

More things to think about.  In the meantime if you haven't listened to my other albums, feel free to share any of following links below:

"The Sun" from the album "The Universe"




Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk about ‘The Sun’ and what to look forward to with the music pieces on the upcoming album “The Universe”.

The sun is obviously the hottest and most energetic place in our solar system.  It is a big fiery nuclear furnace of gases being made up mostly of hydrogen and helium, with tremendous energy and power to provide light and heat to the various planets throughout the solar system.  It dwells in a heliosphere which entails the boundary of our solar system.  The sun is really cold compared to other stars in the universe.  It is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit losing 4 million tons of mass to energy per second.  From the core taking estimated 1 million years to reach the surface.  It takes 8.5 minutes for light to travel the 93 million miles to the earth.   

On the surface is roughly 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit also producing huge magnetic energy in which the magnetic poles flip every 11 years.  The liquid rotates every 26 days while the poles every 37 days changing and swirling the magnetic poles producing huge amounts of energy.  A solar flare is equivalent to 10 million atomic bombs shooting up from the surface at 60,000 miles.  The corona of the Sun is 4 million degrees Fahrenheit.  It provides yet in its perfect setting all that is needed to give us what we need to all things that are required.

I wrote this piece with an orchestration to convey as a busy energetic and a large active display to the way in which it gives us the life we have in a most powerful and majestic way.  It was quite the undertaking to compose in which we can only imagine the vastness of the sun can be compared to our small planet earth.  Being the biggest not necessarily the only active of the solar system, each of these pieces from the Sun to Pluto and beyond will describe some of its activity musically as we continue our journey through the cosmos.

More things to think about.  In the meantime if you haven't listened to my other albums, feel free to share any of following links below:

"Gravity" from the album 'The Universe"

Gravity




Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk about ‘Gravity’ and what to look forward to with the music pieces on the upcoming album “The Universe”.

Today I wanted to talk about “Gravity” from the upcoming album “The Universe”. 
Of course most of us know in 1687, English mathematician Sir Isaac Newton made this discovery. This however is another important part of the universe while trying to not go into a lot of technical detail.  In a short description, it is a natural thing in which mass is brought together, in other words a way in which objects from the tiniest atom or element are brought together.  They are drawn to each other like a magnet.  I wanted to mention this piece being one of the most common and important parts in a brief description to the universe.  Musically this can be quite a challenge, and the idea here is mostly to convey a type of story than an actual or literal description.  I would hope that the music may have a way in which the listener may be drawn toward it.

"Elements" from the album "The Universe"

Elements




Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk about ‘Elements’ and what to look forward to with the music pieces on the upcoming album “The Universe”.

Today I wanted to talk about “Elements” from the upcoming album “The Universe”.  Now I imagine this would not be the first thing people think about in describing the universe, but this is a very important part.  This of course is not to make this piece sound technical or not appealing to listen to, just something important in this process.  In writing this piece of music it is not something that is necessarily easy to describe.  I would imagine that it to be some kind of thought of watching things as they come together.  The universe is a series of elements that are constantly coming together forming one thing or another.  Most of us have seen things put together in a timely manner with examples of animations or ingredients such as cooking and baking.  The elements come together to form the result.  With this music piece this was not intended to describe music like it was in a blender but more of an orchestration of music coming together.

More things to think about.  In the meantime if you haven't listened to my other albums, feel free to share any of following links below:

New posts on the upcoming album “The Universe”

Journey through "The Universe"






Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk briefly about some of what to look forward to with the music pieces on the upcoming album “The Universe”.

This will be yet another take with a different angle of music.  The universe is indeed a large and endless place with unlimited ways to completely capture its entirety in a single music album.  I did want to take and highlight just a few of the many things it has to offer.  Join me as we begin this journey from the hot surface of the Sun to the cold regions of Pluto.  I would like to share with you in upcoming posts a glimpse of possibilities of what you can imagine it would be like to travel to the planets in our solar system and the cosmos.
