Synopsis

This album is a labor of love for me. This album is not just a re-master and re-release of the same album from years ago, but is a brand new experience for listeners. The original material was cleaned up, enhanced, and re-mastered as well as extended onto a second disc of completely new material. A two-hour space music epic consisting of 4 parts to ease the mind and calm the spirit. A new prelude begins the experience and eases you into the parts and movements on a musical tour through interstellar space.

This album is actually delivered in two different formats. The first of which is The Maestoso Interstellar Suite 10 Year Anniversary Edition which is delivered in its intended listening format containing four parts with various movements bridging the music together.  The logical places for the movements are as follows:

The Maestoso Interstellar Suite Part I

  • 00:00 Prelude
  • 04:20 Movement I (Event Horizon)
  • 18:10 Movement II (Naked Singularity)
  • 32:09 Intermission I

The Maestoso Interstellar Suite Part II

  • 00:00 Movement III (Inertial Frame of Reference)
  • 09:29 Movement IV (Redshift)
  • 15:00 Movement V (Time Dilation)
  • 26:36 Movement VI (Causality)

The Maestoso Interstellar Suite Part III

  • 00:00 Movement VII (Cryosleep)
  • 10:00 Movement VIII (Dark Matter)
  • 17:10 Movement IX (Gravity Waves)
  • 23:29 Intermission II

The Maestoso Interstellar Suite Part IV

  • 00:00 Movement X (General Relativity)
  • 06:47 Movement XI (Escape Velocity)
  • 11:41 Movement XII (Aphelion)
  • 20:24 Postlude

Preview/Listen

Singularities

The second format, is Singularities – Music from The Maestoso Interstellar Suite. Singularities contains the individual movements from the various parts of The Maestoso Interstellar Suite as individual songs with unique starts and endings.  Whereas The Maestoso Interstellar Suite presents the music as individual movements bridged together into four individual parts, those individual movements were extracted for shuffle play and broadcasting in the form of the Singularities release.

The track listing for Singularities is as follows:

  • Prelude
  • Event Horizon
  • Naked Singularity
  • Intermission I
  • Inertial Frame of Reference
  • Redshift
  • Time Dilation
  • Causality
  • Cryosleep
  • Dark Matter
  • Gravity Waves
  • Intermission II
  • General Relativity
  • Escape Velocity
  • Aphelion
  • Postlude

Dedication

I want to dedicate these albums to the brave individuals past, present and future who put their lives at risk in our attempt to reach the stars. I truly hope I live to see the day where we reach another celestial body once again. Whether it be our moon, or Mars or even further.  That experience would be ever so delightful, and I’m thankful for those who reach out where I can not.

Carl Sagan once said “Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.” And whether you choose to purchase The Maestoso Interstellar Suite 10 year Anniversary Edition and listen to the experience as originally intended or purchase Singularities – Music from The Maestoso Interstellar Suite (Or both if you would like all of the experiences :)), I hope you find peace and relaxation through it all and your imagination carries you to worlds that never were as you begin this interstellar voyage with me.
