The Orb, the visionary UK "ambient/house" collective, came to collaborate with David Gilmour after working together on a version of Graham Nash's Chicago for a charity project. The Orb were so energized by the task that they continued working until it was an album-length entity. Having asked Gilmour to bring his guitars to prolong and enrich their new creation, the trio worked up a sonic mixture in a range of styles. Thus, the Metallic Spheres project was born. Metallic Spheres is designed to be heard in two parts - "Metallic Side" and "Spheres Side." Each track, or side, consists of five movements. The album uniquely utilizes Gilmour's electric guitar and lap steel guitar, Alex Peterson's sound manipulation, keyboards and turntables and Youth's bass guitar and keyboards.
