The First Landing

by Slow Wave Sleep



Rèfles dreams of being part of a mission for exploring celestial structures together with a team of 7 other astronauts. Once reached the planet, they walk in single file to move faster.

The music starts when the first astronaut put his feet on the surface in a special structure here called "caterpillar" due to its similarity with the typical walking mode of the annelid.

Each character has a different music style and role that reflects his personality, each step forward correspond to a change of sample. Except from the beginning and a couple of resting times, there is a new music event every 8 bars corresponding to the entrance of a new character on scene. Once everyone are on stage, each step forward means a change of sample for the character so that there are no more than 8 tracks in the whole piece.
