Lunar Conquest Suite / Resistance Rising

by Alligator Spacewalk

The Build 02:06


Side A) The Lunar Conquest Suite - a five piece suite composed by Teddy Raven (commissioned by Yerba Buena Gardens Festival) that explores the Space Race through orchestration and samples from NASA Archives. It culminates with the Moon Landing in 1969 which is a musically a very fun moment!

Side B) Resistance Rising - in a certain way, The Lunar Conquest Suite celebrates elements of US history, specifically our technological advances; but at what cost do we make these "advances"? How does “progress” impact us socially, how does it exacerbate inequalities? How does “progress” affect the climate? Resistance rising strives to answer those questions through music.”


released September 22, 2017
