4 stars "Dr. Space's Alien Planet Trip - Vol.1" is the first solo-album by Scott Heller, the master-mind and synth-guru behind Øresund Space Collective, as well as the owner of Space Rock Productions label that released this album on vinyl LP only. It presents all instrumental synthesizer music at the intersection of psycho-acoustic Experimental, textured Ambient, sci-fi soundtrack Cinematic, futuristic Post-Industrial and Space-Age, etc. Aside of Dr. Space synth-manipulations and occasional rhythm-programming, the album features guest appearance of two prominent guitarists - Nicklas Sørensen (of PAPIR) and Richard Orlando (of ALIEN PLANETSCAPES). Their heavy distorted contribution into the creation of the swirling-bubbling-rumbling, droning, groaning, spiraling and constantly shifting space-atmospheric soundscape is quite remarkable. As a whole, the album resembles a soundtrack to the low-budget SciFi pulp-horror movie, though not without the references to Karlheinz Stockhausen's academic researches in the fields of "serialism", "spatialization", "polyvalent forms", "process composition", etc. In other words, if you're searching for inventive, exquisite, and motivated experimental music, this work would be just your "cup of tea".
