Astronomy fascinates me since I was a kid. But its technical background is the same fascinating. It's interesting to follow how the observation technique evolves, how big are telescopes of today and how they are continuously improved. I'd like to dedicate my album to the astronomical observers, who bring us breathtaking pictures of the universe.
Observers are the most extensive project I ever worked on. I tried to create longer tracks, which I would prefer to listen to. I also tried to improve the overall audio mix, to have something worth having on CD. I plan to make very limited physical release with bonus, but currently I need some time to prepare it. I also have unused motives and alternative versions of several pieces, which I plan to release as digital addendum to the album.
released June 3, 2016

All pictures taken from the ESO image archive of VLT in Paranal, except studio picture taken by Zdenek Slavik.
