Composer Amin Bhatia is best known for his scores for television and film (Flashpoint, X Company, John Woo’s Once A Thief).
Bhatia got his start, though, by creating a ‘synthphonic’ orchestral work, The Interstellar Suite, using a relatively limited set of electronic music gear. While the Suite was not a success commercially, it was a success musically, and led to connections in the music business and to his first soundtrack work.
In this short video, Bhatia – along with Steve Porcaro, Patrick Moraz, Frank Morrone, Mark Vail, the late Ikutaro Kakehashi and others – tells the story of the making of The Intersteller Suite. For more of the story, see our 2012 Amin Bhatia interview.
The Interstellar Suite Anniversary Limited Edition is available via Bhatia’s site.
