When Worlds Collide

Is a masterpiece by Thomas Barrandon. I listen to a lot of music and electronic music is one of my absolute favorite genres.
Some of the music I’ve listened the absolute most to in my life, is the soundtrack of Eve Online by Jón Hallur Haraldsson.

Which is a masterpiece to talk about another day. When I listened to When Worlds Collide the first time – I immediately thought about how the space vibe was so clear. The heartbeat that drags you into this album on the appropriately named Extinction opening track, is already floating around in spacey goodness and is accompanied by a mystic synth pattern.

When I heard the track Doomsday Clock. I was back in that Eve Online feeling, which I had missed so dearly ever since I quit the game.

Doomsday Clock – By Thomas Barrandon

When I listened to Pale Blue Dot I was amazed about how he can start a song with such an electronic emptiness. It feels like you are inside a satellite listening to the electronics which is communicating with the universe around you, but you’re not a machine so you don’t understand the signals – only to lead you into a nice interpretable beat and after a brief second, it resolves to an openness of floating around in space, an emptiness which is hard to see why would be popular, but it sounds incredible.
It’s 1 minute of a decent beat, and 3 minutes of spacey sounds and 1 minute of noise, but it’s a great track how the fuck did he do this?

I recommend at least two tracks to listen to if you don’t have time for the entire album. Fragment and Doomsday Clock. Where I think Fragment probably has the best potential for being used in a soundtrack and Doomsday Clock just really speaks to me. How these tracks can only have a couple thousand views or listens is beyond me.

And sorry for not writing anything about my own music, but it was about time I got my finger out of my own ass.
