In 2012, The Initiative for Interstellar Studies (i4is) was founded. Its mission is to achieve ‘starships in our lifetime’; working towards the achievement of interstellar flight, through knowledge to the stars. Advocates of the creative arts, one of the Initiative’s first actions was to recruit a roster of artists, and I was invited on board as honorary musician (and later artist!).
To date, I have composed and released several albums in association with i4is – albums with concepts that reflect the i4is mission statement and its goals, but that also explore themes of space flight and science fiction; ultimately exploring our future journeys beyond the stars.
