  1. Is this song in any way related to this book? Just curious, because it actually sounds like a very fitting soundtrack to the book.

    1. Hi J.M.

      This piece isn't related to that book, but it looks really cool.

      Talyn is actually the name of one of the ships in Farscape, which I was watching quite a bit while I wrote this piece.

      Hope you enjoy it

  2. Finally got a chance to download and listen to this. Very pretty! Will go on my writing playlist, I think.

  4. Song #1 is in the can!

    Self-challenge: I made a composition using Logic's "instrument sampler" template using all of the instruments, with no plugin modifications (except for EQ).

  5. Really I like it, and share it with my friends on Facebook, Twitter accounts.
