Playlist to the Stars is a 15 track celebration of my life-long affair with music, space exploration and science fiction. It is a musical journey compiling the quirky melodies of Sparks and the Rezillos, the classical swells of Holst and Strauss, and the genre-defining soundscapes of Vangelis and Jeff Wayne – with a bit of Queen and Muse pomp for good measure. The musical journey concludes with two tributes: JeanMichel Jarre‘s haunting tribute to the crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger, ‘Last Rendez Vous’ and Alpha Wave Movement’s dreamy ‘Requiem for C.S. (Carl Sagan)’.

So, buckle up and set the controls for  an eclectic odyssey, featuring interstellar visitors that live among us, titans that plot to destroy us, and mortals that fell to earth in the name of science and exploration.
