J. Peter Schwalm & Stephan Thelen: Transneptunian Planets

Read "Transneptunian Planets" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


To get any further out than Transneptunian Planets, one would have to travel to the edge of the solar system. The title of the album— offered up by electro-acoustic composer J. Peter Schwalm and guitarist, composer & mathematician Stephan Thelen—refers to objects orbiting the sun in the far reaches, out beyond Neptune. Many of these objects ...
