Atomine Elektrine – The Second Moon – is now released and available from here:
For at least two centuries there has been ideas about another companion
to Earth, a conception of a second moon orbiting Earth. Mankind has
explored the Universe in many levels and directions, both close and very
far away. We may think we should know all about the heavenly bodies
next door, but it does not seem so. There has been a number of claimed
moons of Earth at least since 1846 and the latest claim was done by Nasa
as late as April 2016. However, no claimed object have had a stabled
orbit around Earth, they have mostly been quasi-satellites, and some
objects have been nothing more than merely illusions. Despite the fact
Earth has no “real” second moon, it is fascinating that we somehow are
still not sure. The subject does not only matters to scientists. The
notion of a second moon is also visible in some popular culture novels,
and now also to Atomine Elektrine.
With The Second Moon Atomine Elektrine turns closer to Earth,
scrutinizing some of the stories of claimed second moons, still firmly
floating around in the unknown domains of space. Organically revolving
vivid layers of cosmic activities are blended with enigmatic fluctuated
sequencing occasionally broken and saturated while orbiting around the
Earth in the search of another satellite. Try yourself, listen and hear
if you can see the second moon.
Atomine Elektrine is a cosmic project by the Swedish Peter Andersson,
most known for the dark ambient industrial project raison d’être.
