Today’s Soundtrack // The Planets

{Image via}

I have a secret/not-so-secret thing for classical music.  When a classmate introduced me to this awesome rendering of The Planets, a series of symphonies by Gustav Holst, done entirely using synthesizers – let’s just say I was close to nerd heaven.  I love all the layers of classical music and the range of emotions – this set of symphonies is no exception and the use of unconventional instruments is so great.

Plus, wouldn’t you agree that anything you’re doing becomes more epic when you have a symphony playing?

It’s the truth.

I don’t have a video this week, as I found the tracks on SoundCloud – you’ll just have to click here to have a listen.  They’re also totally free to download as well!
