This song was completed in 2007, and was a candidate for the SeaStars 2007 album (hence the astronomical reference in the title). But it didn’t make the grade, ‘cos Adrian didn’t think the part with the “metallic bass” riff worked for him.
In a way, he’s right. I think I’ll probably retain the Rock Bass riff but add a layer of a deeper bass, so that the “metal” sound isn’t too distracting.

I wanted the song to convey a sense of drifting and moving through the stars: A child of the stars surfing on solar winds.
This is definitely a work-in-progress. Will need to re-engineering the bass riff a little, and also expand on the song.
