This is a piece I had just started to compose when I heard the news of Neil Armstrong’s death and somehow the more the music developed the more it seemed to fit with the memory of the Apollo program, the Space Race and the rapid changes we’ve experienced since. I can vividly remember sitting with my Dad and younger brother around a small black and white set watching a white blob (Neil Armstrong) slowly descending down the lunar module and placing a fist human foot on an alien world – how on earth did they achieve that in 1969. It was such a positive era after that and anything seemed possible, most of us were convinced that by the year 2010 man would be farming on Mars!
