From Loch Ness Productions: Three new Geodesium albums released!

As we have been doing for the past 42 years, Loch Ness Productions is releasing the latest Geodesium albums of planetarium space music to the world. This time around, there are three: "Stellar Collections 2", "Infinite Light", and "Startalk".

A long-time master of the medium, Mark C. Petersen has brought together these thematic collections from soundtracks that have delighted planetarium-going audiences around the world. "These new albums continue the tradition of featuring music created for the rarefied atmosphere of the dome," said Mark. "The music may have originally been composed for planetarium show soundtracks, but now each piece stands alone as an aural vehicle taking a wider audience across the universe."

"Stellar Collections 2" takes the ultimate deep dive into the Geodesium space music archive. Long-time listeners may recognize some familiar themes in this retrospective album of Mark’s creative soundtrack works stretching back to 1977. The music enhanced the Loch Ness Productions shows Light Years from Andromeda (1980 and 1997 versions), Saturn: Before Voyager and After (1981), Hubble: Report from Orbit (1991), and MAGELLAN: Report from Venus (1992). Other pieces come from custom soundtracks for shows created for the Fiske, Gates, and McDonnell Planetariums.

"Infinite Light" features four extended, ambient soundscapes: chill, floating aural journeys of celestial exploration. Originally composed in the 1980s, this music perfectly captures the stillness and utter alien feel of interstellar travel.

"Startalk" salutes the generations of planetarium attendees who learned stars and constellations while listening to Geodesium space music. Composed to enhance the soundtracks of More Than Meets The Eye (1987 and 1993 versions) for Loch Ness Productions; Chronotiscity (1987), Alien Whispers (1988) and The Great Star Detective (1989) for McDonnell Planetarium; and Sky Quest (1996) for the Albert Einstein Planetarium, these are the sounds that define the genre of planetarium space music.

"Millions of people around the world equate stargazing with Geodesium music," Mark said. "Our previous albums have featured more accessible, radio-friendly tracks. But we haven't put out the actual constellation music, for which we're perhaps best known, as a general release. Here it is. We hope you enjoy this look back to a time when the stars on the planetarium dome were the stars of the show!"

These three albums are now available for purchase in compact disc form directly from Loch Ness Productions, as well as CD Baby and Amazon. Digital downloads can be found at Apple Music, Google Play, and other online sources. You can also tune in on your favorite streaming services: Spotify, Pandora, Amazon Unlimited, YouTube Music and more.
