With new development ‘Space Symphony’, BigCityBeats adds epic musical goosebumps to the space mission ‘Cosmic Kiss’ by ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer
ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer is setting himself high goals for Autumn 2021. He will become the fourth German astronaut to take their place on the International Space Station (ISS). The mission “Cosmic Kiss” is a declaration of Maurer’s love for space, stars and the universe. Once up, he is due to live and work on the ISS for six months.
The mission has already attracted media attention, months prior to him boarding the spacecraft. ‘Space Symphony’ – a composition by BigCityBeats, will be a consistent and reassuring companion to mission content and has already been partially used in announcing Matthias’ mission name and patch. Now the epic masterpiece of sound and melody can be heard in all its glory, having been shared across social networks and distributed throughout international media. A specially-produced video will accompany the bombastic soundtrack throughout the “Cosmic Kiss” mission.
The ‘Space Symphony’ lasts around three and a half minutes and is divided musically into two areas: mystical and space. The musical masterpiece resonates with emotions and melody, combining to activate the positive, happy, ‘feel good’ hormones within the body.
“Entertainment meets Space” with the “Space Symphony” bears the unmistakable signature of Bernd Breiter, the CEO of BigCityBeats. The creator and innovator of the WORLD CLUB DOME is the creative head and producer of the total work of art ‘Space Symphony’. Bernd also thrills the masses with emotionally charged video productions such as “Die Welt steht still / The World is on hold” and countless after movies. Now he sets a new multimedia emotional highlight with the “Space Symphony”.
It creates a feeling of musical wonderment and for three-plus minutes you can experience a sense of what it must be like to be one of just approximately 570 astronauts that have travelled beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Each one of them after gazing down from the heavens and returning to Earth with an experience that changed them forever.
The ‘Space Symphony’ – is of course not the first joint project between BigCityBeats and ESA. “I am honored and proud that we laid the foundation for such a trusting cooperation three years ago by creating the first Zero-Gravity Club, a unique collaboration between BigCityBeats and ESA,” says Bernd Breiter, BigCityBeats inspirational CEO. “And true to the motto, ‘There is always a little more’ – in 2019 we were given the opportunity of creating club history on the ISS, in which ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano became ‘the first DJ in space’ – another significant milestone proving that entertainment could be emotionally interwoven amongst science, and hard-hitting news.”
ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer, who in 2019 stood alongside Bernd Breiter at the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME Space Edition, in front of 50,000 guests on the Frankfurt Arena – Main Stage, is also enthusiastic about the continuing expansion of the BigCityBeats and ESA collaboration. “I am really happy that through our cooperation with BigCityBeats we can reach people’s hearts and get them excited about ESA and space exploration. Music is a universal language,” he says.
