Palavras iniciais
First words

Alex was invited by Dale Kay to collaborate in this project with many others electronic musicians around the world.

Alex decided to record the first part from Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra: The Dawn. It's a theme associated with the 2001: Space Odyssey movie from Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C.Clarke. He decided to play live, but after a while he added an electronic piano. It was the only overdub in the track.

The album's title name comes from the Arthur C. Clarke novel, Childhood's End. The album contains 22 songs from artists around the world. 25% of the profits from the album will be donated to the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation.

After a long delay, the album will be release by Brancaleone Records on January 2014.
