Predating the movie 'Prometheus' by 2 years,
Intelligentsia beamed down with the deep space album, MUSIC FOR MOTHERSHIPS, dazzling us with a most 'unearthly' work to date.

As recommended by Matt Black (Cold Cut) & Ian Russell (the Bubble Man)

"The concept behind 'Music for Motherships' was to create a soundscape devoid of any real structure or quantization - a completely free-flow stream of consciousness. One day was set to write each piece simply to press record and hear what happens - with the first take being the finalized track. The result is something to put on in the background but not focused on - to enable you to switch off, meditate, and phase out of reality. Perhaps to imagine the internal echoes of Star-ships and their machines humming to themselves in the darkness, or the Universe viewed from portals, spliced with the ambient sound of solitude during a long haul across space. At the very least its somewhere some of us hope to be in the not too distant future." - MIRAI
