lyrics by Elaine Walker 1990: a muse flew up from Kagoshima turned into chrysanthemum that circles Earth & Moon Hiten, Space Flyer, gave birth to Hagoromo Then, on wings - fractal wings - choreographed by Belbruno Spiraled wider to the fuzzy boundary of infinity So changing her course as migrating wild geese She soared up to take the watch in a higher sky _________ Lyrics were adapted from "The Navigators", an original poem by Keith Gottschalk (below) The Navigators by Keith Gottshalk, University of the Western Cape, South Africa Ed Belbruno could Ed & the 3-body problem score a pas de trois for heavenly dancers? 1990: a muse flew up from Kagoshima turned into chrysanthemum that circles Earth & Moon. Hiten, Space Flyer, gave birth to Hagoromo then, on wings choreographed by Belbruno spiralled wider to the fuzzy boundary of infinity; so changing her course as migrating wild geese she soared up to take the watch in a higher sky. ..... Kagoshima - Japan's Cape Canaveral Land of the Chrysanthemum - Japan Muse-A, Hiten, Hagoromo - Japanese space probe fuzzy boundary transfer - trajectory that enables aspacecraft, with no more fuel, to be speeded up or slowed down by gravities of a planet & its moons

about

Space Elevator Music is a full-length instrumental CD which has been described as “relaxing instrumental music for your extremely long elevator ride into space”. Some of the intrumentals are borrowed from Elaine's Frontier Creatures and MARS CDs, sans vocal tracks. Some are lunge versions of her ZIA music. They served as backing tracks for her many performances at pro-space conventions. Karaoke, if you will!
