musica caelestis

Perhaps the most important accomplishment of our times has been the expansion of the domain of humankind into the space above our planet. In a thousand years, our wars, treaties, and political contests will, for the most part, have long since been forgotten. If we are remembered at all, it will be because we are the ones who began the exploration above. This music has been inspired by these early efforts and celebrates these accomplishments. It is my hope that the beauties and complexities of these compositions convey a sense of what has been discovered thus far and hint at some of the further wonders that remain to be discovered.
