Tr3s Lunas (pronounced Tres Lunas ) is a studio album of the British musician Mike Oldfield from the year 2002. As was the case The Songs Of Distant Earth and later Light Shade itself prescribes the artists on this album, the instrumental chill-out. Oldfield had an unusually long break of three years indulged by The Millennium Bell, since the album was intended as a soundtrack to the eponymous computer game he developed in parallel ( see below).

Special features and tracks

In contrast to The Songs Of Distant Earth, the tracks go on Tr3s Lunas not flow into each other; there is also a vocal piece. The original idea was to create music that (see below) can be used as background for a computer game. The album consists of 14 tracks. These are:

A slightly modified version of Tr3s Lunas be heard as First Steps to Light Shade. The piece Thou Art in Heaven is not to be confused with ' Art in Heaven ', the light spectacle at Oldfield's live premiere of The Millennium Bell New Year's Eve at the Victory Column in Berlin. The radio version of To Be Free is distinguished by a different drum track that already fully emphasize the first chorus, as well as by an earlier Hiding the album version. To Be Free was translated into German and Spanish also (partly); at least the German version suggests a machine translation.

Most of the titles included are provided with programmed drum tracks. In contrast, the two predominantly acoustic scale pieces Daydream and Firefly stand out.

MusicVR - Interactive PC Game

Some editions of the album are equipped with an additional CD -ROM with an interactive PC Game - as well as later Maestro the animation did not show up -to-date and flopped; Oldfields excursions into the world of computer games were often ridiculed.
