COUNTDOWN Minus 3: Space Music
What is Space Music?
Greetings. I’m Chris Bass a music producer and renowned Spaceologist and I’m here to explore that very question.
This ‘prequel’ introductory episode Countdown: Minus 3 breaks down the motivations and purpose of the S.O.S. project as we count down to the launch in Episode Zero.
Whether you’re a music lover, space-fanatic, musician or producer or just need a new creative perspective blast off with me on a fantastic journey as we explore the musical universe of artists who sonically evoke Outer Space and Sci-Fi Futurism in popular music with SOUND.
From 1950s Cosmic Jazz to Spacey Techno, from Sun Ra to Sunset, the Sounds of Space podcast is part of a Masters exegesis, that seeks to identify the sonic language of Space Music. Music lovers of all kinds will find something worthwhile.
Each episode finishes with a music track. This time it’s ‘Gumble the Dog’ by Capital F - from my first ever commercial release in 1991. It’s a stupid tale of a dog that gets adopted by aliens…and if you listen in, I’ll explain why it isn’t actually ‘Space Music’.
