"Awe and wonder.

Two words that come to mind when I think about the spaceflight perspective. These two words immediately came to mind when I first, and every time, I listened to the music of The MOONS.

A powerful composition that will transport you through

space and bring you back to Earth!"

"Through the power of music, I wanted to create an inspiring work of art that 

resonated with as many people as possible on the planet, but also deliver 

a hopeful and uplifting message that is relevant to the plight of our world today.”

 

By combining artistic disciplines to produce works of great magnitude, 

THE MOONS SYMPHONY is a result of collaborations with some of the 

greatest scientific minds from lead space missions from 

NASA, ESA, and world-class Space artists.

 

This production offers a unique visual and musical experience that 

celebrates the mergence of music and science to 

dramatize past, present and future moon explorations and provides a 

new perspective of our OWN planet Earth"
