I often think in terms of (minimal) story lines when composing a track. Here are the shorts for this album:

Sputnik (Gaming Mix)

The year is 1957, where our russian friends are shocking the rest of the world by successfully planting a satellite into a stable earth orbit.


"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." – John F. Kennedy (1961).


July 20, 1969. The legendary Apollo 11 mission.

In Orbit

The sudden high when you just left the ground and the landing is still far away. A feeling of almost endless possibilities being at your disposal.

Touchdown (Excerpt)

The astronaut Joshua just landed alone on mars and – while pondering about space and time – questions his destiny.

Space Debris

A melancholic track about a janitor in space who becomes a part of what he has been ordered to destroy.

NGC 891 (Lounge Mix)

Fast forward to the year 2250, where space travel has lost its nimbus of exclusiveness and adventure, becoming a commodity. We're having a short look at NGC 891 where a well-known spacecraft performs maintenance duties.


This track is dedicated to all the brave souls who died while risking their lifes to advance humanity. In particular I thought of the Challenger mission STS-51-L where the seven astronauts died during the launch on January 28, 1986.
