The countdown has begun with this three-movement suite depicting the launch, orbit and return to earth of a spaceship. Blast Off Into Orbit begins with the launch, portraying the spaceship powering into the atmosphere. Zero Gravity allows the listener to float in space as a Lydian melody in the flute provides a light, weightless feeling, accompanied by metallic percussion. Re-entry to Earth features a descending fanfare announcing the return through the atmosphere back to earth. A ceremonial theme greets the spaceship breaking through the sky and landing in full glory!
