This music was conceived in collaboration with deep space photographer Chris Baker. Chris' beautiful images of 'deep sky objects' - those outside our own solar system - are on display in a number of UK art galleries and I was inspired to create a musical piece to accompany them. The music is played in the galleries themselves as an installation and can also be enjoyed in this standalone album format.

The music is essentially a singular piece but with four distinct sections - each 'track' takes it's title from the photo that inspired it, and these images can be seen by clicking on the individual track link.

A lot of synthesizers, reverbs, genuine sound recordings from NASA and even a gong help to shape a continually evolving composition that is deep, calming, intriguing and occasionally unsettling. Headphones recommended!
