Double Eclipse, the second Geodesium album, was produced in 1981. NASA used some of the selections during it's TV coverage of the Voyager Encounters at Saturn and Uranus. It consists of nine electronically-realized musical compositions. Of the five original works, one is a clever bouncy tune featuring two electronic 'dancers' and a synthesizer rock drummer. Two space-music-style pieces musically explore the inter-galactic reaches. Another work is a driving and intense rocker, and one is the world's first electronic-disco-bluegrass combination -- a real toe-tapper! There are four transcriptions: J. S. Bach and Johannes Pachelbel for the classical music enthusiast, and two contemporary works by Wilke Renwick and W. Francis McBeth. Until 1999, the album was available only as a vinyl LP. But we've remastered it, and for those Geodesium fans desiring a complete collection, we've created this custom CD-R. Plus, we've added a bonus track not on the original album, a 6-minute piece called Lightspell. First recorded as entrance music for the 1980 version of the planetarium show 'Light Years From Andromeda,' only a couple dozen copies were distributed, so it's a rarity!
