SPACE RENAISSANCE SUITE (2013) for solo flute by Howard J. Buss is dedicated to the renowned Italian flutist, Elena Cecconi. It was inspired by the tenets of the Space Renaissance Initiative, which is dedicated to influencing world opinion to support space travel and to “lift humanity from the cradle of the Earth.”

The 4 movements explore imaginary scenarios one may experience during future space travel and the colonization of distant worlds. Through the Portal and Alien Storm musically depict one’s first glimpses of an alien world. Introspection and Reaching Beyond address the intriguing opposing mental capacities that allow a human being to tap into his/her inner self to connect with the universe, and also to kindle the desire to reach outward to new adventures and exploration.

Movements: Through the Portal (1:45); Alien Storm (1:45); Introspection (2:05); Reaching Beyond (2:05)
Total duration: (7:45)
