The Cassini Division

Here's a new piece of music that I've been working on for the past couple of days.
Named after a division in Saturn's rings, located between the two largest rings of Saturn, rings A and B, The Cassini Division is a complex structure comprised of smaller rings and gaps; due to it’s less dense make-up, it appears as a dark area between these two massive, outer rings, A and B.

To assist in my imagining the sounds of space, I solicited some help by channeling the mojo of our most famously known Saturnite, Sun Ra, and inviting in some old school Kingston dub to fatten up the excursion. Wouldn’t you know it, with Sun Ra in my consciousness, I ended up with his home planet as my destination and some electric keys at my fingertips.
