For Starshot, Chris Wirsig drew from the legacy of the Berlin School style and its artists who influenced him, from Tangerine Dream to Klaus Schulze. The album reflects his fascination with science and space travel, drawing inspiration from the discovery of exoplanets and possible future colonization of other planets. With this, the album is also a hat tip to organizations like NASA and Space-X.

“Breakthrough Starshot,” for example, is a research and engineering project that wants to develop a proof-of-concept fleet of light sail spacecraft that should be capable of making a journey to the Alpha Centauri star system where Proxima Centauri b, an Earth-sized exoplanet in the habitable zone of the star system, is located.

Chris says: “I’m hoping that I will see these efforts come to fruition, partly because I always liked that Star Trek idea of exploring space while making mankind a better and more humane species, and partly because I feel that mankind might need to go to other planets one day to escape an Earth that is no longer habitable.”
