POGO Creates Amazing Song Using Star Trek TNG AudioOctober 18th, 2016
Wow. Musician Pogo’s latest track is a real ear-worm. It’s weird and wonderful, created entirely with audio taken from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Picard’s wisdom as usual, is spot on. It is better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all. This may be the most amazing piece of Star Trek music ever produced.
Temba, his arms wide! In Tamarian this signifies the giving of a gift, first heard in the excellent episode Darmok. Data & Picard is my tribute to one of the greatest TV series of all time. It is an original track featuring the voices of Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Commander Data (Brent Spiner), accompanied by a music video I shot entirely in my living room with a green screen and lights.
The track opens with the Klingon Victory Song, followed by a remix of Data singing Che Gelida Manina in the episode ‘In Theory’. This episode was the first ever to be directed by Patrick Stewart and I didn’t realize this until after the track was finished.
