about

What lies outside our comfortable everyday existence? Like the girl in the cover picture, we may look out at a world which is different to our normal experience – it may be enticing, or it may be frightening.

In these tracks, we recognise themes which we know from science fiction, whether it be from films or literature. There is a dynamism as we meet the challenge of the future, and seek to look ahead into different narratives of what might be. There may be the attraction of interstellar flight and the beckoning unknown of worlds yet to be discovered. But there are also dystopias which disturb our belief that the future must always represent simple progress.

Travel through these scenarios of what is yet to come. All is not quite as you might imagine.


Released in support of the Initiative for Interstellar Studies (www.i4is.org).
