about

"Sky is of all visual impressions the nearest akin to a Feeling; it is more a Feeling than a Sight." (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)

Mankind has been querying the skies for millennia, driven by scientific and/or spiritual motivations.

The album is inspired by these two different approaches, thus the tracks are dedicated to a few of the most notable places where we have turned our gaze toward the skies.

From a musical viewpoint, these tracks inspired by astronomic observatories and places of worship have also created the opportunity for composing in different styles ranging from medieval/early music to oriental to space ambient music.

It so happens, that the Hubble Space Telescope celebrated its 25th birthday in 2015, but this was also the year when a genius of electronic music, Edgar Froese, has passed away - and one track is dedicated to his memory.

"There is no death," Edgar Froese wrote, "only a change in our cosmic address...".
