A throwback to the late 80’s this composition makes me think of a post apocalypse, the aftermath of a nuclear war or alien invasion, something like that so I called it “Aftermath”.

I composed the original, all synth based version of this in a couple of hours one evening back in the late 1980’s using my Yamaha DX7II and Korg M1. I decided to re-work this and blend some of the original synth sounds with a virtual orchestra. This is the result.

Mar 30, 2021 update: Although the original idea for the music was the aftermath of an apocalypse, that only led to dreary depressing video ideas until I came up with the idea to use the music as the background of a tour of the solar system through the view screen of a space ship.
