Fresh wonders of space exploration continue to awe and inspire artists. In a new downtempo release, Italian composer Francesco Novara delivers an EP fabricated from just two sound samples of a European spacecraft that visited (and landed on) a comet. It marks a unique collaboration between record label Establishment and the multinational European Space Agency ESA.

Francesco Novara was born in a small city out of Venice, and gave up a first dream of art restoration to focus on music. After ten years at the music department of the storied Fabrica research center, Novara has made a name as a prodigious composer, from documentary soundtracks to advertising – and composed music for a launch of an ESA satellite, inaugurating a unique relationship that would give birth to this EP.

All proceeds from this album will be used to support open use of sound and sonification of space exploration.
