Music For Into the Unknown

With the help of our Into the Unknown¬†exhibition advisors, we’ve created the ultimate playlist for any adventurer about to embark on a journey into the unknown.

From Boney M to Black Sabbath via Kraftwerk, Alec Empire and Gustav Holst, listen to our Spotify playlist to see the many ways that musicians, spanning genres from classical to disco, have looked to science fiction for inspiration.

Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Well, as a Bowie fan, ‘SPACE ODDITY’, ‘LIFE ON MARS?’, ‘STARMAN’ and right up to the present with ‘BLACKSTAR’!
And Constance Demby’s ‘NOVUS MAGNIFICAT’
