Orbital at Paralympics opening ceremony with Professor Stephen Hawkings – “Where is it Going?”

Orbital played their track ‘Where Is It Going’ on top of a large podium with theoretical physicist Professor Stephen Hawking sat in front of them. Yes, he even wore their trademark torch specs!

The hundreds of dancers in the stadium re-enacted the Large Hadron Collider while Stephen Hawking explained the workings of the collider.

2 Orbital tracks on WipEout 2048 (Sony Vita)

 

Details are still a little scarce but it’s now confirmed that ORBITAL have contributed 2 tracks to the up and coming WipEout 2048 game on the new Sony Vita.

The 1st track is a re-working of “P.E.T.R.O.L”, which incidentally was on the first and original Wipeout game in 1995. The reworked version has the title of “P.E.T.R.O.L (Final Drop Mix)”. The 2nd track is called “Beelzedub” and is their totally revamped version of “Satan”. This track has been briefly previewed on their Video Diaries from last year and has been played out during their DJ sets in 2011. This track will also feature on the new ORBITAL album due for release in April.

The full tracklisting for the soundtrack is as follows:-

Anile – Change Of Direction (WipEout mix)
Camo+Krooked – Breezeblock (WipEout mix)
Deadmau5 – Some Chords (WipEout edit)
DirtyLoud – School Of Funk
DJ Fresh ft. Sian Evans – Louder (Drum Sound & Baseline Smith Mix)
