Co-produced and mixed by Alessandro Del Vecchio, numerous renowned musicians have participated in this work, as Roxy Petrucci on drums, Elisa Montin on drums, Anna Portalupi on bass, Nita Strauss and Mio Jaeger on guitars, and Amanda Somerville, Elize Ryd and Valentina Procopio, all with vocals.
Thus, classics like “Barbarella”, “The Neverendingstory “, ” Flash Gordon”, ” Doctor Who “or “Suspension” are presented in a format that one could call space prog, but the original melody of the songs are maintained. Undoubtedly, a job highly recommended for lovers of sci-fi and everything related to soundtracks.
