The Special Focus for November, 2013.
On Galactic Travels, the Special Focus for November is Galactic Anthems a.k.a. Glenn Adams. Sound, as much as music, has always fascinated Glenn, especially sound that has no earthly connection. One album of great influence on him was “Quatermass,” by Tod Dockstader. It was quite remarkable to Glenn that Dockstader could create such incredible sounds from such mundane sources as the air escaping from a balloon. Once exposed to that album, Glenn was hooked forever on electronic music. He quickly purchased one of the first commercial synthesizers on the market and started making his own electronic music. Glenn went to the Berklee College of Music where he studied trumpet . There, he also started playing bass guitar and gigging with local bands. He moved to California where he eventually completed his degree in composition. Based now in Colorado, Galactic Anthems music has been licensed for use by numerous cable TV stations including The Sci-Fi Channel, National Geographic, the History Channel, the Discovery Health Channel, MTV, and many others.
