Music Of The Spheres By Mike Oldfield
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.
Music of the Spheres is the confirmed title of the forthcoming album by English musician Mike Oldfield. The UK release date has been set as January 2008. It is also to be the first classical recording released on a USB flash drive. Hayley Westenra is featured vocalist on one track. The album also features Lang Lang on piano
