Music & Movie Voyager
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!
