Composer & synthesist Amin Bhatia is wrapping up an Indiegogo campaign for the 25th anniversary re-release of his Interstellar Suite.
The Interstellar Suite is a cult favorite for fans of classitronica and symphonic electronica. The Suite was inspired by the arrangements of Wendy Carlos and Isao Tomita, but is an original score.
Bhatia is offering a variety of editions of the release, ranging from a digital binaural version to a DVD version and some collector editions.
The campaign ends Thu Nov 15 at 11:59PM PT. See the Indiegogo site for details.
At the 2012 NAMM Show, I had the opportunity to talk with composers Amin Bhatia and Dave Gross about a project that they were starting – a surround sound version of Bhatia’s orchestral electronica classic, The Interstellar Suite.
Bhatia is probably best known for his soundtrack work for television, film and iMax projects, including Flashpoint, Iron Eagle II, and John Woo’s Once A Thief.
But Bhatia kicked off his career with an orchestral electronica album, The Interstellar Suite, that was inspired in part by his love of the soundtracks of John Williams and Jerry Goldsmith and in part by the classitronica works of synthesists like Isao Tomita. The suite features 9 sections, orchestrated for layers of synthesizers (Roland JX 10; Yamaha TX 816; Oberheim Expander; and a Minimoog) and a pair of crash cymbals.
