At The Lonely Edge of Our Universe
Commissioned by Kyojiro Sasaki
The Voyager Spacecraft, which was launched in 1977, is at the edge of our Solar System, the farthest we have ever explored. It has been traveling quietly for the past 35 years and now it’s about to reach the unknown. I imagined what it must feel like to be out there in space for so long- so beautiful yet so entirely alone. This piece was written for Kyojiro Sasaki and I had his playing style and his wonderful drawings in mind while I wrote it.
