Transit Of Venus. Venus passing between the sun and earth. A rare event. Last time was in 2004. Next time is this year 2012, June 5-6. And then you have to wait until year 2117 for the next one. So don't miss it.

The music is a simple piece. It only has 3 instruments, all modeled synths. Very quiet and reflective music. The inspiration came from hearing the sound of one of the synths. Though I could have added more and polished the sounds I chose not to. I think the quality of this music lies in its mood, the melody and the sounds that came from pressing the keys at different strengths.

Update: 06 June 2012. The image has been replaced by a photo I took myself. Exciting experience.

Very Cool Soundscape Kenneth...I agree you could have definitely layered this more but I think you made a wise choice to keep things simple here. Well Done!

Very nice, a bass, a medium and a treble, what more smiley It's hard to keep things simple cos we often tend to add too much. Specially me smiley

I saw about this transit on the news last week and I'm glad it gave you this inspiration. Lovely sounds as always the tinkling against the bass is wonderful imagery in music and the way you fluctuate the volume slowly all adds to the feel of the spectacle..... lovely and very relaxing, regards M

This is perfect as is. To have added more would have detracted from the lovely melody and the way the keys mix with the other sounds yet keep their style. The touch of the keys is everything. You have done a wonderful job.

I think that had you added any more, you woulod have buried this simple yet majestic mood too deep. As is, it is well balanced, effective and very evocative. I like to use the KISS (keep it simple, stupid) approach when possible.

Di and I both enjoyed our listen..that was a real treat! I don't think we've posted any of our Electronica/Synth/Ambient songs here...might do that in the near future.

Still smiling about this one, even though it finished playing 3 or 4 minutes ago! We're liking it a lot!

This is awesome! I can hear and feel the effect of Gravity and Mass pulling the notes round in elliptical orbits. Majestic and enthralling! Loved it.

Updated the photo today the 6th of June.

The new picture is one I took myself. I used a simple compact digitial camera and a welding filter in front.

Taken from Glostrup in Denmark.

Kenneth, I'm really impressed you managed to get a picture of this! I think in the UK we only glimpsed it for about five seconds in between clouds ...

Thanks for the link Kenneth. Yes it's a very inspired composition and I can distinguish clearly the different type of sounds you used. I like the stereo effect with the delay and the deep Bass sound mixed with the rest. Long reverb and sustain is doing the spacy ambiance. Well done
