Outpost excerpt

When I was commissioned by Hearts of Space mastermind Stephen Hill to make Slider- Ambient Excursions for Pedal Steel Guitar, I had never before written space music. Stephen got me up to speed by turning me onto examples from the genre. By the time I made Slider, I had written a fair amount of underscore for film and video, so writing with a purpose didn't seem at all foreign to me. On Slider,Outpost is probably the most quintessential example of this kind of cinematic writing. I imagined a space station light years away from the nearest human settlement and wrote underscore for that mental picture.
