TUNE Pixeltruppen - Verlängerte Mission
This track grew from several seeds: an early experiment in using "Ebow" for guitar improvization, Anis on holiday and so unavailable for vocals, and Google/YouTube searches related to the "Ulysses" robotic space-probe. This "Ulysses" probe was first launched in 1990 (a joint NASA/ESA project) and was designed to work for 5 years but remained operational until 2009--hence our title "Verlängerte Mission" ("Extended Mission"). Karsten edited the original guitar+Ebow audio and added keyboards plus beats (Moog System 55, Roland Tr-808, Minimoog, Waldorf Pulse, Yamaha CS1X). Karsten also arranged and produced the finished track.
