Celestial Harmonies "finnish" recording session

Hi to you all! Today is December 31 and in a few hours we'll get a brand new year. I wish a happy new year to you all, I hope it will be full of music and happiness!
I know it's a bad period, with the financial crisis, but "hoping" is free of charge for us all :)

Today I wanted to share with you, a little curiosity, an episode on the recording of Celestial Harmonies. In the song "Crossing the Line", fifth movement of the suite "The Origins of Matter and Life", you can hear the sound of the sea and some seagulls.
The curiosity is that the sea is in fact a lake and I recorded it with my iPhone this summer during my vacation in Finland. It was a rainy day and I was in Tampere near Pyynikki tower. I don't know the name of the lake I recorded, but it had a good, brilliant and crispy sound so I decided to take it. The city of Tampere extends all around the lake but in the place I was recording there were not city noises so I took a really clean recording and I ended up using it in the album. I also took a few pic of the exact location, here they are, hope you enjoy them:

Here you can see a pic I took right after the recording
Nice finnish landscape all around
There was a nice house

Another curiosity: seagulls is actually Daphne "singing"! :)

Welcome to our little space!

Hi, it's Perseo speaking here, hi to you all, this is our new blog! :)

I put it online to share some thoughts and feelings about our music and to talk about our work and maybe our lyrics and other (hopefully) interesting things like music recording, production and related.

In this first post I would like to talk about something that got me busy in the last months, before I started  producing Lunocode's new album Celestial Harmonies, that will be released on January 10 2012 by Spider Rock Promotion.

I love very much science, and I love very much philosophy as well, plus, I am a very thoughfull person, I'm really in love with Carl Sagan's work and also I recently discovered a writer that I never heard of before called William Olaf Stapledon. In fact I found an old italian edition of "Starmaker" in the house we rent this summer when we played at Alive Music Festival in Barletta and, as I am a curious person, I googled for it and I found an old edition of "First and Last Men" and "Starmaker", I bought them and read them. I spent quite some time reading those wonderful books and also watching all the 13 episodes of "Cosmos: A personal view" by Carl Sagan as well as reading his "Contact" novel. This gave me continuous I decided to put togheter the thoughts and feelings that I was gathering. A very good story (in my opinion it's really a good story) formed in my mind and so this is the birth of "The Origins of Matter and Life" concept, something that I'm really proud of!
Another great book that inspired me so much is "Deciphering the cosmic number", by Arthur I. Miller, the story of the relation between Pauli and Jung and Pauli's obsession for the number 137.

This is the story about what gave me inspiration to write great part of the lyrics for the album, I can't go deeply into the concept of the suite by now but I promise that I will do it in the next months, after the album is released. I don't want to spoil the story for you when the album is not yet officially released! :)

I would love if someone, reading my lyrics, felt the need to talk with me about those grand themes every song of the album (not only the songs of the suite) gravitate around.

Thanks to everyone of you who will join the conversation and remember: we will find ourselves united and we'll let the light surround us in the heart of the world!! :)
