Drawing on the accessible archives of NASA, Spaced Out started out as a collaborative project between some of the UK clubland's most respected VJs and visual artists. Artists, who between them, have provided visuals for the likes of The Orb, Paul Oakenfold, Fat Boy Slim, LTJ Bukem and Derrick May; and for clubs including London's Ministry of Sound and Turnmills, Liverpool's Cream, and Manchester's now demised but infamous Hacienda. The project was soon joined by a number of other pioneering artists, notably Brian Kane - one of the founding members of the US audiovisual outfit Emergency Broadcast Network and Ninja Tune's Coldcut, both of whom are amongst those credited with originating and pushing the boundaries of audiovisual mixing and remixing.

With this project, both the music producers and visual artists were given access to the same pool of archive footage to sample from and to give their own unique treatment to. And with such a varied range of styles, techniques and vision, twenty-six very different audiovisual tracks emerged.

Sampling four decades of out-of-this-world footage, from the Gemini era through to the Shuttle missions, Spaced Out evolved into a kind of audiovisual space odyssey of its own: deep chilled audiovisual electronica for the new century.
