Starling 520

from Kyanos EP by Solarno



Where the other three tracks on Kyanos have something specific to do with cyan, Starling 520 is more about bringing together ideas and influences from the first three.

Background on the name of the track? 520 happens to be the approximate wavelength of the color cyan in nanometers so I have managed to sneak in a reference to the science of cyan. Starling is a bit more vague, but makes sense in my mind. While listening to the track as it evolved, it reminded me at times of some of the loungey, future-synth songs found in sci-fi movies from the late 60's and throughout the 70's. I combined that thought with the hearing of a bunch of birds one evening and Starling came to mind. As far as bird species goes, Starlings have a very sci-fi name to them. Cheesy? Yes. Effective? Definitely.
