about

The first record release from EMU, a 7" lathe cut transparent disc featuring two songs from the album "2001 seconds: a synth odyssey," newly remastered to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. Unreleased bonus track included for digital download: "Commandeer Operation," the very first song recorded for "2001 seconds: a synth odyssey."

Each record is handmade and hand-cut, one at a time, making it a truly unique piece of artistry. Please note, lathe cut records do not sound as loud as a pressed 7" vinyl records.

About the songs:

"The Abandoned City"
Inspired by the city themes of classic era JRPG video games, this song conjures the feelings of curiosity, fear and anxiety; imagine roaming about a futuristic city whose population has suddenly and inexplicably... vanished. Why, and more importantly how have so many people suddenly disappeared in what was once a bustling metropolis?

"What Are We, Slaves?"
At what point do droids become human? This experimental track gives the listener an opportunity to eavesdrop on a conversation between two sanitation droids in a sewer system arguing about what their place is in the universe. Perpetual servitude? Or some higher purpose?

"Chase Attack!"
What is scifi without a good pirate/smuggler story? This track is meant to capture the chaos of an arrogant pirate and their crew storming an unsuspecting ship, taking it for a joyride until it runs out of fuel, pillaging its cargo and searching for their next victim.
