Duster: Moon Age

This one was written over three listens.

I went more for imagery with this one.
It was slow starting, but I picked up speed and wrote most of this quite quickly.
I probably could’ve gone for something a bit more obviously progressive in terms of how the song flows, but I think I did alright.

Duster’s “Moon Age” is from Stratosphere.

I hope you enjoy.

Long, drawn out sounds and steady, spaced percussions fade in. They play a long, slow jam, almost as though a sense of either descending or expanding. Exploring. A hard darkness shines upon a monochromatic expanse pockmarked by various objects and shapes that seem as formless as they are distinct. Something shines and shimmers, flickering in and out, seemingly not there, and yet constantly present.

Stillness fills the space, though everything is of course moving along, and there is a peacefulness. There is a calm, though an undercurrent of an uncertainty remains.

For a brief moment form becomes more distinct and a few notes of subtle emotional swing play out, but most fade out, leaving the percussion on its lonesome, playing carefully and playing with space as the song ends.
