This song is a collaboration among
Alister Flint, Chris Vaisvil and me.

The title is an anagram but I will not reveal the source.

The image has some obscure reference to the song, so cryptic I forgot about that.

Chris posted an initial file that I mangled beyond recognition with
Metasynth, Alister disfigured it even more adding effects, drums, percussions.
I then added the trumpet part (thanks to Camel Audio
Alchemy) that, of course, uses the Carlos Gamma tuning system. Chris’s file was microtonal too but using a different tuning system (its name has something to do with the title so I will not tell you anything about it). Alister used one more tuning system so the tune is definitely poly-microtonal! Al then added voices so that the final piece sounds like a band from some unknown planet playing at a Martian cosmodrome while aliens wait to embark for their galactic journeys.

I hope you enjoy the trip!

What is going on with the stereo image here?  Come clean, it is shrinking my head!  I'm guessing it's in Alister's part. 
Henk Badings, no doubt.
