Music of the Spheres
Mike Oldfield’s newest masterpiece fell in to my paws today.
This album is amazing! It is a classical album, no drums to make a rhythm, no electronic instruments or amplified instruments. It is as clean as it can get.
The theme of the album is the music of the solar system if you could hear what the planets, the sun and the moons are humming.
“In this world, everything has a pulse or a vibration. This sound is unique to each living or non living thing and in itself creates a music that no-one can hear. I believe that this has a very powerful resonance with, and a deep effect, on our lives. What would happen if we took this further and apply this to bigger things , more powerful things ; like an entire solar system or galaxy say, what would that sound like?
Musica Universalis is the ancient theory that every celestial body, the sun, the moon and the stars has an inner music. This is a harmonic and mathematical concept derived from the movements of the planets in the solar system. The music created is inaudible to the human ear.
Music of the Spheres is my interpretation of this theory. Every planet and every star; even the whole universe has music within it that no-one can hear, this is what it would sound like if it was set free. This is Music of the Spheres.”
What ells can you want? I believe that Mike Oldfield has overdone himself once more and as a classic music lover, I am well pleased with this album, that I just GOT to buy when it hits the shelves November 12th this year.
Keep an eye out for it!
