Not since the classical score of Gustav Holst “The Planets” (1918) has there ever been anything this profound. Electronic Music pioneer Jeff Mills creates a new type of score and performance project consisting of Classical and Electronic Music. Planets is a tutorial journey through our Solar System to musically visit each of the nine planets. A modern approach to understanding other known worlds, Mills creates, applies and manages the sounds and instruments seamlessly to the point of commonality – resulting in brave new approach in conceptual music.  One of a kind cosmic and music journey which leads us to a new era of purpose music.
