Reaching for the Stars
A Musical Journey Through Space and Time
Dr. James R. Webb is a professor of physics at Florida International University with a PhD in astronomy. In addition to his teaching, research and University service, he is also a guitarist and songwriter. He has written some original astronomy songs which he uses in classes, and in public programs to stimulate interest in astronomy.
Keith Morrison is a music producer, audio engineer, arranger, and studio owner who has a keen intellect and interest in science. Mr. Morrison holds a Master of Music from the University of Miami; he’s recorded and produced Grammy-winning CDs for a number of internationally known artists.
Local musicians Laurie Jennings, Dana Keller, Scott Emmons, Jennifer Perez, and Dr. Webb’s long-time musical friend Tom Barnello were called upon to add background vocals and some electric guitar to the music. Dana Keller’s steel guitar on The Cycle is amazing! So sit back, relax, and take a trip through musical genres, past the limits of the known universe, and deep into our consciousness and Reach for the Stars.
