Music of the Spheres - Martin O'Donnell, Michael Salvatori, and Paul McCartney

Just over 4 years ago, this 8-part composition was finished by lead composer Martin O’Donnell, a veteran composer for Bungie. It was intended to be a companion to the then-new Destiny universe that Bungie had created in the form of the Destiny series of games. There were a series of struggles between O’Donnell and Bungie, one primary point being Bungie’s failure to use O’Donnell’s music in their trailer at E3 in 2013. This eventually resulted in O’Donnell’s firing from Bungie, and the disappearance of this album. After his firing, hope was lost that it would ever see the light of day. O’Donnell expressed on Twitter that he, “gave away nearly 100 copies of Music of the Spheres,” and that while he didn’t have the permission to allow it to be shared, “no one in the world can prevent me from giving you my blessing.”
