A Sense of Wonder is a double disc by this Stoke-On-Trent-based artist Chris Thomas that mixes pure Space Music with more rhythmical excursions.
This double album represents the humble beginnings for Mirrored Meridian, with the tracks being recorded through 2007 to 2011. The two albums, A Sense Of Wonder (Earth) and A Sense Of Wonder (Universe), were intended as a personal musical homage to some of the wonders of our little blue planet and the immense universe in which we exist.
There is a mix of electronic styles, with influences ranging from 1970's Tangerine Dream, 1970's Jarre, Banco De Gaia, Vangelis etc.
Probably more 'song' based than the later Heliolatry album, but still an album with soundtrack tendencies and intended for drifting away with the imagination.
A bonus track, Formation Of The Earth, is included here at the end of Vol 1. Originally intended as the opening track for the 'Earth' album, but later abandoned. MusicZeit | Soundcloud | Review | Info Tracklist:
