The Interstellar Suite (Stereo Remix)

The Interstellar Suite was Amin Bhatia's first defining work. Originally commissioned in 1987 for Capitol Records' Cinema label, Bhatia created the orchestral epic using only a small setup of analog synthesizers, layering hundreds of parts together one at a time. He deliberately avoided digital samplers as a gesture of respect to live musicians. There are no vocals or narration; only sound effects, dialogue clips and track names help to anchor the dramatic space expedition story- line. The suite pays homage to synthesizer legends Wendy Carlos and Isao Tomita as well as film composers John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith.
