Oumuamua

On the 19th October 2017 an astronomer at an observatory in Hawaii was looking into deep space when he saw something unusual. Through the lens of his telescope he saw an object that didn’t behave like anything he had ever seen before.

It was travelling very fast and was following no recognised orbit. It soon became clear that this object had originated from an unimaginably distant place in the depths of interstellar space, far beyond our solar system.

Some members of the astronomy community began to postulate that this strange object might be something other than just a comet; maybe this object was a visitor from a distant world?

The object was named ‘Oumuamua’ after the Hawaiian for ‘Scout’.

I wonder what a visitor from a distant civilisation might think of our planet. What would a visitor from another world feel about the custodians of this unique and beautiful place?

How would they view the greed and short term thinking that is destroying the planet, how would they view war, poverty, disease, drought and famine?

Surely they would see that all of these things are avoidable, they would see how the masses always suffer at the hands of a few who would rather build fortunes they can never spend, than work towards the betterment of the planet and its inhabitants.

What must they think of us?

This collection of songs were written over the last two years, set against the backdrop of unprecedented upheaval and global challenges. Sadness and joy, darkness and light, each song is a chapter in the story of how we have arrived at this point in time and space, and where we might be headed in the future.

Enjoy the journey!
