In case you didn’t noticed yet, we are Sci-Fi enthusiasts. When it comes to inspiration, think of vintage hand-drawn book covers instead of movies, Orchestral - polyphonic or not - music more than FX.
A century ago, Holst composed the non-symphonic & orchestral suite The Planets. It was modern at the time - still is. But you may be more familar with Tomita’s 76 synthesizer-heavy version.
Now, we decided to release The Planets, the mini-compilation suite. Each instalment will compose one of the 7 original movements featuring various artists. The aim isn’t to adapt, re-interpret & sample Holst or Tomita’s work but to pay homage, remembrance in our own way. Return to the future, to its concept, ideas & details in a modern take attempt capturing elements & moods.
This compilation pays tribute to Neptune, The Mystic & its choruses.
