Program notes

The Hubble Space Telescope (HST) launched in 1990 by the space shuttle has recorded over 100,000 imagesin the past eight years from its position 380 miles above the Earthís surface.Photographs from the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex simply put are out of this world.

Pictures of the Great Orion Nebula, Barnardís Loop, M78, M43, the Molecular Clouds 1 & 2 (OMC-1, OMC-2) and The Horsehead Nebula never cease to capture my imagination. I have journeyed there many times in my mind so I decided to sketch that journey with notes.

Travel with the music 1,500 light years away into the constellation Orion the Hunter, into the Molecular Cloud Complex and through the Great Orion Nebula where Stars and Ideas are born.
