“The tune is never finished, you always have to continue writing it in order to keep it alive” says Thomas Fehlmann of The Orb.

Lunar Orbit takes us into the Ultraworld of the pioneers of ambient house music.

Patrick Buchanan’s feature documentary explores The Orb’s unique creative process and delves into the story behind the music, revealing the history of The Orb’s origins and the foundation of the friendships which anchor the mother spaceship.

A blend of unprecedented studio access from the duo’s Moonbuilding 2703AD recording sessions in Berlin, live concert footage, rare unseen archive material and interviews with key creative players; Youth, Guy Pratt, Mixmaster Morris, Matt Black, and many other current and former members of the Orb's extended family result in a film that is truly Orbriginal.

Alex Paterson describes his musical method,  “I don’t particularly want to pick up an instrument, I want to pick up all these sounds and make musical notes out of these sounds.”

This is the North American premiere of Lunar Orbit.   There will be a Q and A following the screening with producer/director/editor Patrick Buchanan and Alex Paterson & Thomas Fehlmann of The Orb.
