From the album A Brief History of American Space Travel (Maisonneuve Music, 2017)
“Welcome To Space” plays with the eagerness before an anticipated journey. An ambient texture and a disorienting rumble give way to a solid groove that lifts the song into an exciting, ever-changing new atmosphere. The voice sample, taken from NASA’s audio archives, introduces the seven astronauts that were selected for the very first American attempts of launching human beings into space.
Written by Michael Chambers (SOCAN). Performed and produced by moon:and:6.
Saxophone by Greg Osby / sampled from Greg Osby “Sax Session” – Converse Rubber Tracks Sample Library
