Astrorock - a Cosmic Voyage through the History of Rock 

The space age has inspired many composers and musicians. And many had their breakthrough with space related songs.  Like Elton John with “Rocket Man”, David Bowie with “Space Oddity”. Or Pink Floyd´s debut album that includes the song "Astronomy Domine" and the legendary Dark Side of the Moon is known to everyone. Queen is singing about Einstein´s theory of relativity and guitarist Brian May did finish his PhD in astrophysics in 1987. 


Samples from familiar hits from e.g. Iron Maiden, Jimmy Hendrix, Police, David Bowie, Deep Purple, REM and many more will be played together with spectacular videos and animations from space. You will learn a lot about music history as well as space history and current space activities. This includes the latest imagery from James Webb Space Telescope.
