// Concepts

The main concept behind the album was to create an illustration for each of the 21 tracks. The theme and feel was to create a lost VHS look of an animation that had a limited run in the late 70s early 80s.

"Influenced by the animation of the same name ‘Orphans of the Sky’ originally aired on RTÉ2 in 1978 as a test screener before the channel was officially launched. Unfortunately not many people got to see (or even remember) it in its original form. To this day nothing has survived from the original 13 minute animation but these 21 stills.
 
This album came together with the intentions of trying to recreate the vibe and feel that I can remember hearing from the original score as a kid.
 
Hope you enjoy and thank you for your support,
Bocuma"
