Welcome to my music page on Reverbnation. My name is Darrell Farnsworth and I am TRANSLUNAR. This is my electronic music project which was setup four years ago to compose and produce melodic electronic music.
I am a composer and performer and have been making music for over 20 years and have a background as a rock guitarist, vocalist and keyboard player. Why then do I create electronic music? Well I always had a love and fascination with rock music and also electronic music and would always feel happy listening to Pink Floyd and Genesis as much as listening to Kraftwerk and Jean Michel Jarre.
It is with this in mind that I decided four years ago to actually try and create my own style of highly melodic music using mainly, synthesizers, sequencers and electronic drum machines. This was in the main due to the fact that I believe that most electronic music these days had become a lot less reliant on melody and harmony and much more about the beats and the vibe. Now this is not a bad thing but I decided I could create a unique electronic/synthetic style using many of the elements of the modern genres such as Electro, Trance, Techno etc and knew that I could create sound scape's with an epic quality that did not necessarily just rely on the BPM or drum textures which seem to be so prominent in today's music.
I have also had a lifelong fascination with Human Space flight, Sc-fi and futuristic film's and themes so made sure I would incorporate this as a main themes or thread in my music.
Anyway please have a listen and if you get chance tell me what you think Thanks for your support!!!
