Mike Oldfield about Music of the Spheres

In this world, everything has a pulse or a vibration. This sound is unique to each living or non living thing and in itself creates a music that no-one can hear.

I believe that this has a very powerful resonance with, and a deep effect, on our lives.

What would happen if we took this further and apply this to bigger things, more powerful things: like an entire solar system or galaxy say, - what would that sound like?

"Musica Universalis" is the ancient theory that every celestial body, the sun, the moon and the stars has an inner music.

This is a harmonic and mathematical concept derived from the movements of the planets in the solar system.

The music created is inaudible to the human ear.

Music of the Spheres is my interpretation of this theory.

Every planet and every star: even the whole universe has music within it that no-one can hear, this is what it would sound like if it was set free.

This is Music of the Spheres!

Mike Oldfield.

Philip Watling

This is a truly magical piece of music. I have been a fan of MO for over thirty years and love all his music, but this is such a change - and that is not a bad thing. It just proves what a brilliant musician Mike is :)

Geytkeypur

I agree.
(Sorry for my late response)

Dr David Reiter

A soundtrack waiting for its movie.

Casting Shadows

Reminds me of the Alistair Reynolds book Revelation Space

Grzegorz L

subtle and tragic, but absolutely beautiful

Geytkeypur

Is this your first introduction to Oldfield? (By the way, your description is spot on)

Jeremy Feit

this is a rehash of tubular bells. his best works were all pre 90s, 70s and early 80s
