Space Journey is a three-movement suite depicting the launch, orbit and return to earth of a spaceship. "Blast Off Into Orbit" begins with a dramatic launch portraying the spaceship powering into the atmosphere. "Zero Gravity" allows the listener to float in space as a Lydian melody in the flute provides a light, weightless feeling while the percussion accompanies on metallic instruments. "Re-entry to Earth" features a descending fanfare announcing the return of the ship through the atmosphere back to earth. The ceremonial theme depicts the spaceship breaking through the sky, and landing in full glory.
