Mu­sic & Movie Voy­ager

All About Space - - Stargazer -

Cost: £11.00 From: Mar­ket Square Mu­sic Ltd

Made by elec­tronic com­poser and per­former War­ren Greve­son, Voy­ager is the mu­sic and movie cel­e­bra­tion of the long­est-run­ning space trip by the space­craft of the same name. The com­bined CD and DVD traces the launch and 40-year jour­ney­ing of the twin craft in a two-disc pack­age, syn­chro­nised into a spe­cially com­mis­sioned 70-minute-long film dubbed Hello from Planet Earth.

Voy­ager was re­leased on the 41st an­niver­sary of the launch of Voy­ager 1 this year and is made up of two parts en­ti­tled Jour­ney to Jupiter and Saturn and Be­yond, which have been bro­ken down into nine tracks each and be­gin with record­ings of 55 greet­ings in dif­fer­ent lan­guages – you'll re­mem­ber that these are also fea­tured on the gold disc car­ried on the space­craft. The CD also fea­tures sounds of the so­lar wind and the uni­verse as recorded by Voy­ager and ends on ‘the legacy: the im­pact that the Voy­ager project has had on all of us’. Pleas­ing and in­trigu­ing both vis­ually and to the ear, Voy­ager is per­fect for any space fan – and with Christ­mas just around the cor­ner, we think it should be firmly on the present list!
