Genre: Modern / Soundtrack / Improvisation
It was about two years ago, when Leo Christopherson unwillingly turned me into an addict to Gustav Holst's "Planets Suite" with his rearranged CODM version. Since then, I always felt urged somehow to not let Neptune be the last piece of the suite.

But after Pluto was deprived of its status as a regular planet, something else had to jump in... The news of the space probe "New Horizons" approaching a Kuiper object named "Ultima Thule" up to a distance of about 3,500 kilometers (~ 2,175 miles) on Dec 31st 2018 came in right on time to tell me what could be an adequate enhancement to the suite: The Kuiper Belt!

With these pictures in mind, the improvisation lifted off in a style that tries to imitate Holst's one from The Planets Suite, but after a while was captured by memorized fragments of Dennis McCarthy's OST from the "Star Trek: Generations" movie. Of course, the Alexander Courage fanfare eventually had to make its appearance to conclude a piece that dares to go where no organist has gone before... ;-)

Enjoy the video trip through our galaxy!
