“Swelling harmonic synthesizer melodies evolve slowly over a bed of rich ambient soundscapes” is a fast way to say that “New Horizons” album by Luna Firma was composed with much attention to bringing you, the listener, into a state of exploration along themes of the NASA space mission. Tracks are themed along mission lines and discoveries made during the probe’s amazing journey to Pluto and beyond.

Composed and Performed by Kuutana and Eric "the" Taylor
Album mixed and mastered at Borders Edge Studios, Canada.
