What can you hear in space? What does it sound like when you dance between the stars? A hollow tone or a rampant drone?
For many years, music has channelled influences from the outer reaches within sound sculpture and design. Many musicians, producers and disc jockeys have attempted to replicate the serenity and futurism associated with space.
Each has approached the task in a different manner, no two people think or imagine in the same way and as such the music of the cosmos is as much open to interpretation as anything else. Some draw for the melodic flutter of synths and instrumentation, others approach the task with an industrial edge.
Fort Romeau is about to release a new EP for Live At Robert Johnson, we invited the eclectic producer to talk to us about some of the music which he associates with sounds from amidst the stars.
He picks music from Richie Hawtin, Eduard Artemiev, Eduard Artemiev and more...

From Within (Pete Namlook & Richie Hawtin) - A Million Miles To Earth
Excellent album from the late, great Pete Namlook in collaboration with Richie Hawtin from 2000 that recalls the late 70s experimental electronic music of Tangerine Dream and Jean Michelle Jarre. Those not familiar with Namlooks vast discography should check out his many great LPs and collaborations, of particular note are his LPs with Move D. This particular youtube upload has a nice spacey video for extra cosmology points.
