Cimmerian Cerulean Orb was inspired by the image of our small planet as seen from the outer edges of the solar system, and the idea of its past (or potential future) existence without life. A variety of effects and extended techniques were used to represent some of the sounds of our elements - air, water, fire, earth, combined with certain electronic manipulations that signify the planet's connection with the cosmos. A structure of sparsity with extended soft sections expresses the desolateness of the expanse, sometimes interupted with violent outbursts.
