The name is borrowed from a photograph of planet Earth taken in 1990 by Voyager 1 from four billion miles away, and a subsequent book by astronomer Carl Sagan. It puts in perspective how fragile we are, how negligible our perceived differences. The recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan are a stark reminder of that fact. It brings home the need to stand by one another in whatever capacity we can.
This fourteen track compilation features friends of mine from the electronic music scene who were more than happy to donate their time and talent. Nine of these tracks are yet unreleased or exclusive. The comp was mastered by Japan based engineer Gregg Janman at Hermetech Mastering, who made time for this even as he prepared and packed for his move across continents to Europe. The cover art is by astrophotographer Masahiro Miyasaka, winner of 2009's Galilean Nights' astrophotography competition.
The proceeds will be split 50/50 between Red Cross and Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support.
I hope you love this comp!
