Gliese 581d

Nearly a year since the last post! Actually quite a lot musically has been going on - I have about 5-6 tracks on the go, about as many other sketches but haven't been that great at finishing them.

Gliese 581d is a long open work - in the vein of "Through the Gates" but denser and with the balance more on conventional structures and harmonies.

The rough idea of the piece is a probe flying through the Gliese system and passing various worlds and finally leaving the system altogether.
