Dear Forum Friends

Greetings. As usual, sorry it's has been so long since I've been online.

A few weeks ago my wife and I drove down to South Carolina to see the solar total eclipse. It was remarkable and inspiring. Here are our musical impressions from the Trans-American Solar Eclipse called, "Eclipsing Reality"

Enjoy. I'll put the BB technical stuff up later

Loved this. Excellent vocal.. I was able to experience a total eclipse in 1979 in my home province of Manitoba. It was an unforgettable experience. Loved your harmonines...

What a tune! The arrangement on this is superb, and the vocal performance is seriously on point as well. It's perfectly catchy too, it easily got stuck in my head. A wonderful songwriting job on this.

Great job, SpaceDog and thanks so much for sharing smile

Scott,

I remember the 1979 solar eclipse as well. It was only a partial for me in New York but it was still pretty cool.

Thanks for listening. Glad you liked it.

Peter, Thanks. To be honest, those are TC Helicon harmonies. I wish I could sing that high.

Torrey, You are so right. I was really struck by the unifying effect this event had despite all the social unrest we've been experiencing. We can only hope the message sticks with at some people.

Hello SD,

Great song! Love the way you bring the human element and nature's element together. Real nice vocal and the harmonies are stellar. That timpani drum was great for the accents. Loved it!

Thanks. That was the most interesting thing about it for me . I've seen all kinds of space and astronomical events , but it's been a long time since one captured people's attention like this .

Take care.

I think Torrey said it right!! This is a really nice expression of a magical grand event. My family had talked about going to Oregon to experience the total eclipse but sadly did not make it. This is very nicely done! Take care. Greg
