In "Light Echoes", we explore the art of the cosmos as it plays out across light-years-wide constructs of interstellar debris that mark the deaths of stars. Light, form, music, dance, and space all combine in the universe's own expression of art.
This piece draws its inspiration from the Loch Ness Productions fulldome video "HUBBLE Vision", and uses 19 Hubble Space Telescope images of stellar outbursts. Evocative scenes range from planetary nebulae to dramatic explosions heralding the inevitable death of the luminous blue variable star Eta Carinae, and echoes of light from the red variable star V838 Monocerotis that illuminate clouds of gas and dust surrounding it. Their mesmerizing motion is set to "Light Echoes", a dramatic, hypnotic Geodesium space music composition that speaks to the depths of the cosmos.
"Light Echoes" is track 6 on Geodesium "Stella Novus" -- the 2011 space music album from Loch Ness Productions. Experience it at geodesium.com.
