Proving the power of modern audio programs as tools for composition, “non-musician” John Flannelly channels the spirits of retro space-travel without ever picking up an instrument, save for a simple synthesizer on select passages. Created almost entirely with the free program Audacity, Spaced presents sounds alien yet familiar, retro yet full-frequency, obnoxious but curiously intriguing. While coming off as seemingly schizophrenic at times, the songs bounce back and forth between explorations of planetary surfaces and a lone spaceman’s thoughts seamlessly, weaving a unique journey into the lo-fidelity of outer space.
