Album Notes
If the Hubble Space Telescope could sing about the cosmic discoveries it has made, this tranquil and moving suite of space music would be its symphony of space. Each piece takes the listener on a shining path through the cosmic web of existence, past newborn stars, starbirth nebulae, frozen clouds of light, and into the very heart of our galaxy. Let Geodesium Stella Novus transform your perceptions of the cosmos just as Hubble has extended our view across the vastness of space.

There are nine gloriously spacey pieces, mixed as stand-alone features. The album also offers an incredible bonus track: seven of the featured tracks are mixed into a 30-minute-long concert. It's the soundtrack music from one of Loch Ness Productions' most popular planetarium shows, Hubble Vision, for you to enjoy without dialog or narration. It's a chance to hear how the compositions were designed to flow from one to another with interstitial music, providing context for how they all relate to each other.

Bask in the music and immerse yourself in a special aural tour through the wonders of the universe — Geodesium Stella Novus.

Any space-music enthusiast's dream come true!
Mark C. Petersen is without question and without exception, one of the most prolific composers in the space-music genre today, and once again it shows on his latest installment Stella Novus. This album is definitely one of his very best albums to date, right beside Stellar Collections. It portrays space and the infinity of the universe perfectly with its ethereal and floating sound textures that surround you in a blanket of warm sounds, and takes you on a deep-space cruiser before you know it.

The structure of the tracks is incredibly atmospheric and immersive, and makes you feel as if you really were drifting around to otherworldly places in the galaxy. Good examples are the tracks Protostars and Light Echoes. Both are filled with some of the most beautiful floating synthesizer sounds you are unlikely to hear on any other space-music album out there today. Very haunting atmosphere, yet very peaceful and beautiful at the same time. A visionary's dream come true! Other highly notable tracks are the title track Stella Novus and the last, whopping 30 minute long track, entitled Hubble Suite.

Stella Novus starts off with a colorful sound palette that paints and fulfills the shimmering synth work that breathes emotionally in the background; one to pay attention to if you like a somewhat brighter side of space-music. The last track is my favorite of them all. It's a 30 minute long-form space cruiser that slowly and carefully builds to enormous amounts of ethereal sonic soundscapes that push Mr. Petersen's creative force to his limits, if you ask me. Mark's distinctive synthesized sounds are all over this track and shows off some of his very best work, ever!

Rarely, if ever, do I hear such beauty in space-music, and I'm a 'die-hard' space-music enthusiast. So if you ever thought of, or dreamed about the possibility of travelling without moving to space, then do yourself a favor and buy this album right away. It's the next best thing to actually being there. The verdict is: If you like the albums Fourth Universe and Stellar Collections then this album is a safe bet. It's any space-music enthusiast's dream come true. Stunning work, Mark. Mission complete!
