A Musical Exploration of the Cosmos
Sun Ra's Spaceways meets six new compositions for Javanese gamelan, synthesisers, piano, vocals & video.
Ever since we saw Captain Jean-Luc Picard play gamelan on Star Trek (as if it was from another planet) we were intrigued by the idea of gamelan in outer space. After all, aren't we all in outer space, travelling on Spaceship Earth?
Join Glasgow's ever-eclectic gamelan ensemble for a cluster of constellations, a sinister story, a voyage across the solar system, resounding Fibonacci clangs, deep space trance, and the moment we stepped out there… untethered.
