This project started as a Youtube series which is still available at www.youtube.com/inuvikphil and updated about once a week.
I now present my first album - 35 minutues long - which is based on John Byrne's 1989 comic-book epic "The Trial of Galactus."
Byrne's story line of the Fantastic Four meeting Galactus -- a giant outer-space being who feeds on planets -- is what I consider to be the high point in 45 years of Fantastic Four comics.
(Reed Richards and others defeat Galactus but spare his life. Galactus thanks the heroes, decides in his gratitude to spare earth and leaves. But of course he eats their neighbours' planet and the survivors hold Richards' responsible.)
It's a great moral dilemma wrapped up in galactic travel, weird aliens, million-year-old space ships, the Silver Surfer and of course Richards' never-ending laboratory of Jack Kirby-inspired giant machines and inventions. New York ends up transported into space, the Norse god Odin appears and there is the character of "Uatu the Watcher," who lives in an extra-dimentional house on the moon.
Every time I hear Moog sounds I can't help but think of Byrne's vision of a limitless cosmos, full of different aliens' voices, spaceships and civilizations.
Hope you enjoy it!
