  Bjørn Lynne:
Phoenix - Deep Space Resurrection
original game soundtrack

Released 1997 on Studio17
Catalogue no. S17CD003

An orchestral space sci-fi epic adventure

"Phoenix" is Bjorn Lynne's first full-length orchestral work. The music was produced with orchestral arrangements and the compositions were approached like an orchestra, and then recorded with a powerful arsenal of synths, samplers and effects.

The music follows a sci-fi story full of action, intrigue and drama. A thread is followed through the music from start to finish with a common theme that all the music is built around. The arrangements are a bit inspired by the likes of Christopher Franke ('Babylon 5' composer) and many other sci-fi composers.

Reviews of Phoenix music album:

This album, in short, brings up images of deep space travel, and gives the illusion of flying through space in a ship of sorts. I think that if there was a movie made based on this game, it would be the best movie I would ever have seen. It's a great album, and I give it a two thumbs up. Great work Bjorn!!!! - Bill Williams, USA

This is a dark space symphony. As I know Bjorn Lynnes backgroud as a demo scene musician, video game composer and fantasy oriented guy this game soundtrack is a something special, something ambitious. Though this record is made with computers,synths and stuff like that, I cant help imaging that one day Bjorn is conducting a big orchestra in a famous concert hall doing Phoenix - live! - Jukka Tarkiainen, Finland
