Programme Note:
"One day in in 2012 Earth produced a sound similar to that heard at the start of the symphony. I have transcribed it off of a video taken by observers of the event. I redirected the mysterious sound into a music piece, which explores the wonders of nature and the ground we walk on every day.

The first section is an epic journey flying over the magnificent views of Earth (especially around 3 minutes) and seeing oceans, mountains, deserts, and rainforests.
It all culminates into another return of the grand sound produced by the Earth itself (around 4 minute mark).

Then we transfer into the middle of the earth and the controversial theories associated with it, - whether science knows all about the centre of the earth or not. This dilemma concludes the first section around the 6 minute mark.

Beginning the second section, the sound and story do not calm down but instead we fly even higher over the Earth into the space with drive, force and energy. A little past 6 and a half minutes, we stop among the stars and stargaze for a moment.

The remainder of the symphony is a joyful flight back home to mother Earth; and of course the main theme re-appears once again. The grand finale, coda section, is just a celebration of her beauty - the Earth."
