about

Long before Prometheus uncovered the origins of the Engineer and his species, the mysterious 'Space Jockey' for many the most mysterious thing of the Alien film was held captive in everyone’s mind. The lonely sentinel first encountered by the doomed crew of the ship Nostromo, the haunting discovery of the enormous lonely star gazer remains one of the most memorable moments in the Alien franchise. Based on the iconic bio-organic industrial designs of Swiss artist H. R. Giger, who designed every detail of the fossilized sentinel.

The Space Jockey, a tragic traveler who fell victim to his own lethal cargo and was forever frozen, trapped in time and space.

This album will center on the mystery of The Space Jockey in it's Biomechanical state of being in a Dark/industrial Ambiance.

Words of HR Giger :

"The creature we finally ended up building is biomechanical to the extent that he has physically grown into, or maybe even out of, his seat, - he's integrated totally into the function he performs."

"The pilot is conceived as one of my biomechanoids, attached to the seat so as to form a single unit"

"In his seat in the centre of the turntable is the pilot, eight metres (26 feet) tall."
