ea024 - Kendall Station - The Broken Pod
This album is dedicated to all the workers, voyageurs, and residents who have passed through Baikonur, Kazakhstan; on their way to, or at least nearby, space.
This album started in a small apartment with 2 cats and a tape machine. At the announcement of the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's entry into orbit, 4 more tracks were quickly added, and I knew what this needed to be. It was to be a tribute to the human push into the outer reaches, however fettered. Humans without boundary or dogma, without the slightest predilection. People on Earth.
Soyuz rockets are the only cosmic ballista that get there regular basis anymore. Their technicians are the epitome of competence, capability, and loyalty. They have a job, and they do it well. I wonder if the mighty Neanderthals ever argued so much before crossing an icy isthmus, and thereupon populating a continent. I only wish I could be there with them, just to see humans do so damn good at their jobs.
