Captain Underpants This album takes the special spot of #200 in my collection. The Light Dreams is truly a worthy addition for any collector of electronic/epic/dub/atmospheric/ambient/etc.... I am very pleased with these albums and am excited for future releases.

Michael Reilly Pulsating electronic soundscapes, beautifully composed with energy and vitality. This album is brilliantly ended by the stunning orchestral majesty of 'Into the Unknown', a monumental musical pleasure. Favorite track: Into the Unknown.

Daniel von Appen Lots of interstellar ambient music that has the charming “80′s synthesizer” kind of touch and this is exactly what it feels like listening to it: a sci-fi thriller from the 80′s in outer space! While the tracks are sometimes filled with spoken words in forms of transmissions the most prominent part are the quite catchy rhythms throughout the album ranging from easy listening to suspension and thrilling. A welcoming 41 minutes journey of exploring space that I’ll gladly venture through.

The idea of travelling to the stars is at the heart of the endeavours of the Initiative for Interstellar Studies. This album expresses that challenge in orchestral form, and evokes the concept of space travel in a way that speaks to anyone who shares that fascination with the unknown.

We find ourselves reaching out into space with themes that mirror aspects of long-distance spaceflight. They lead us into realms of which we have little knowledge from our normal lives, through to a positive image of facing up to the mystery of the wider cosmos. Is that where the ultimate goal of the human race lies? Feel your way there with music which touches the intuition that lies in all of us to seek what is “beyond”. You never know what you might find.
