Music of the Spheres - Golden Age Anthology
In 2013, Bungie's audio director Marty O'Donnell hired poet Malcolm Guite to write poetry for Destiny and its musical accompaniment, Music of the Spheres.
The end product was a series of 14 poems titled "Seven Heavens, Seven Hells; A Sequence for the Spheres," and a supplementary poem titled "Earth's Enigmas."
This 14-poem suite would have been included in the original Music of the Spheres release as liner notes. Each poem exhibits the same symbolism that inspired the musical movements, with the 15th, "Earth's Enigmas," being a cumulative vision of Destiny.
The Golden Age Anthology is meant to preserve the intent and context for these works through a series of videos and downloads available here.
We hope you enjoy our interpretation, because this is all ultimately for you, whoever you are. Reading this is the first step. The dance is as deep as you wish it to be.
