Violins and electronics combine effortlessly in this disturbing and claustrophobic offering from Egisto Macchi. As the titles indicate, the theme here is space and the results are arguably as good as any science fiction soundtrack you are likely to come across. Sparse blips and beeps are suddenly interrupted by violent orchestral blasts on several occasions but at other times you are left waiting for the attack which never comes. The intensity in these tracks is almost overwhelming. There seems to be a lot of conjecture about the year of release for this record, various sources on the internet have it listed as 1970, 1971, 1972, 1975 and 1979. Even good old reliable Discogs has steered clear, not putting any date on their listing. My gut feeling says that it's from '71 or '72. Many thanks to the original uploader.
