This E.P was written, recorded, produced and performed by Ben Smith.
It features mainly piano pieces, but also has orchestral and electronic elements mixed in.
The E.P has kind of a concept, as it is part of my ‘innovation music’ project at university.
The idea is that each pieces is inspired in some way or another (colours, scale etc) by the a picture of space (taken by the Hubbell telescope, professional photography etc).
The reasoning for this came from watching a debate between the late Christopher Hitchens and his opponent, in which is opponent stated that taking religion from the world depletes it of its beauty. This E.P is trying to prove that beauty, awe and inspiration can come from the universe itself.
