Lost In Space is an exotic music excursion into the unknown – discovering the sectors of Outer Space and encountering unexpected occurrences which is to be the objective, narrative and attraction. Like the architecture and habitation structure of a jungle, life exist and persist everywhere, but only by the degree of our 5 basic human senses.
As we humans prepare to spend more time in Space, there will be many achievements and discoveries while we better understand the Cosmos. And in this quest, we will learn more about our selves, questioning everything we believe and know. Being lost or not being able to understand something encountered is a certainty and unfortunately realistically unavoidable. So much so, that we may have to re-think science and what we know of the laws of physics.
An extraordinary musical creation by the Electronic Music and artist Jeff Mills, he conceives Lost In Space with the future of mankind’s advances in Space travel and colonizing other planets in mind. It is a reach to grasp for subjects like the “other types of time”, “the crashing of Worlds” and “the illusions we create” in our minds and what we believe to reality. Fusing Classical and Electronic music is the only way to play out a scenario of such magnitude of possibilities.
