Around the sun is a journey through seasons in space. Majestic cellos induce a calm melancholic ambience. Electronic elements emerge and take over with sonic clarity.

Blue explores the outer layer of our galaxy. Introduced by an imaginary strummed instrument, the parts then evolve with orchestral strings and tubular bells sounds.
