Soundscapes #1: Orbital Decay
Saturday, February, 16, 2002.

The premier of Soundscapes was on Saturday, February 16, 2002, at the City of Bethlehem's IceHouse. From spacey ambiences to Berlin School sequences, visiting progressive rock influences along the way, this inaugural event was an impressive debut concert for Orbital Decay. Providing computer generated images as well as virtuoso keyboard and guitar music, Orbital Decay put on a show the likes of which the Lehigh Valley has never seen or heard before.

Soundscapes #2: The Ministry of Inside Things and Tom Shaw

The sophomore excursion of Soundscapes was on Saturday, June 22, 2002, at the City of Bethlehem's IceHouse. The Ministry of Inside Things, considered to be among the most innovative of EM bands today, did two sets of spacemusic that transported the crowd beyond Earthly boundaries. Tom Shaw provided beautiful ambient music in the lobby when the doors opened and during intermission while Chef Jeff provided a sumptuous dinner buffet upstairs.

The third concert makes Soundscapes a real series. It was held on Saturday, February 22, 2003, at the City of Bethlehem's IceHouse. Orbital Decay, one of spacemusic's best kept secrets, did two sets of spacemusic that prove that this band's CDs should be in every spacemusic fan's collection. Tom Shaw and Moe Altamura provided beautiful ambient music in the lobby before the show. And during the intermission, Chef Jeff provided a sumptuous dinner buffet upstairs.
