"The Moon" is a narrative journey and a vivid soundtrack. It is radio drama – as well as electronic track.

The music is arranged around original radio messages from the Apollo 8 mission. Apollo 8 was the first manned spacecraft to leave Earth orbit, reach the Earth's Moon, orbit it and return safely to Earth.

The skillful montage of this original contemporary documents forms an intense arc of suspense. With original music by Robert Heel the recording takes the listener on a thrilling voyage. Narrative storytelling and electronic music form a strong entity in this recording. A soundtrack to a movie never made, a modern version of a classical radio play with contemporary electronic music.
