The renowned and award-winning composer Ilan Eshkeri will preview the May 13th release of his new album ‘Space Station Earth’ by playing two intimate, small capacity London shows at The Playground Theatre on April 12th and 13th. Tickets for the shows are available HERE, priced at £10.
The experience takes on a new dimension in person, but the awe-inspiring beauty of the official video for Eshkeri’s current single ‘Aurora’ provides a taste of what to expect. The song also makes for an enticing introduction to the ‘Space Station Earth’ album, which is available to pre-order or pre-save HERE. It sees Eshkeri deploying a soothing, cinematic blend of modern electronic and vintage acoustic instrumentation to convey through music the extraordinary emotional voyage that astronauts experience in space. The project began when the astronaut Tim Peake contacted Eshkeri to say that he was a fan of his work. That initial connection eventually resulted in Eshkeri being granted unprecedented access by the ESA, which provided him with an invaluable source of inspiration for the album.
