This is another piece made for KVR’s One Synth Challenge.
I originally wrote this piece about a dying sunflower, but it became more sci-fi as it progressed. Now it’s a piece about space cargo vessel, “Sunflower”.
Having issued a Mayday distress call 1 year ago and without fuel (but plenty of supplies) the crew are nervous. For the last 6 months, alien entities made from light are breaching the vessel’s armour and hissing unintelligibly on the deep space radio. But nobody understands what they want or why they are here. Help may never come. One crew member has found and is learning to play a wooden saxophone.
