Galaxy is Tim’s sixth CD, released in May 2015. This album includes all of the tracks from Tim’s 2014-2015 track-a-month campaign.

Space… the final frontier… the tracks on this album are inspired by the awe and beauty of space. Almost a 50/50 mix of minor and major pieces, Galaxy includes both energetic pieces (Orbit, Perspective, Starlight) and calmer pieces to capture certain moods (Night, Time’s Arrow, Vast).

Two tracks stand out for their high praise and were downloaded frequently during the track-a-month releases: Perspective is a song inspired by the “overview effect” that astronauts experience. When viewing Earth from space, astronauts observe that national boundaries vanish, the conflicts that divide people become less important, and the need to create a planetary society becomes both obvious and imperative. Tapestry, the longest track on the album, is titled for the idea that an individual’s life is woven together from many moments, both positive and negative. This track is a journey through a range of emotions.
