Arp 220 appears to be a single, odd-looking galaxy, but is in fact a nearby example of the aftermath of a collision between two spiral galaxies. It is the brightest of the three galactic mergers closest to Earth, about 250 million light-years away in the constellation of Serpens, the Serpent. The collision, which began about 700 million years ago, has sparked a cracking burst of star formation, resulting in about 200 huge star clusters in a packed, dusty region about 5,000 light-years across (about 5 percent of the Milky Way's diameter).

Inspired by colliding galaxies, black holes and multiverses, I wanted to create huge soundscapes, but avoid the typical cliche of using 80s synths. So I used Native Instruments wind intstruments which were processed and ran through some weird reverb with long decay. Added some of my own field recordings as well.
