DJ Jeff Mills: Astronomia

Ahead of his sold out Barbican show with the BBC Orchestra, producer and DJ, Jeff Mills, reveals an exclusive mix of his favourite composers, including a few compositions of his own from his new album.

‘The mix comprises of various compositions from my favourite composers and a few from myself with pianist and composer Makhail Rudy. Using the last composition in the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ by Stanley Kubrick as my first track here, my objective was to create a charismatic continuation soundtrack that takes place after the end (finale) of Kubrick’s film. Something that addresses an unusual unfolding occurrence, perhaps the special synthesizing that happens when/as human life is formed. Where elements are the subject of consequences far beyond the listener’s control.’

Not to be missed.
