Perhaps the greatest composer of his generation Céleste Hutchins draws his inspiration for the music of the spheres, something he's been attuned to since beings from Betelgeuse implanted sensors in his cerebral cortex in 2001. Since that time, he has won the Prix Noveau de la Musique Mental on Auron (2002), the Young Composer Constrained Prize on Cygnus Alpha (2003), the Timely Arts Prize on Gallifrey (1250), the Destructive Process Award on Skaro (2006), and the Musical Answers Prize on Magrathea (2007).
Hutchins' music has been played on radio throughout the galaxy, including Colonial Wireless, Radio Free Abelmouth, and Live 34. He has been interviewed in London Metropolitan and Global Weekly. He is currently a fellow at Jordan College, Oxford and is at work on an opera commissioned by the Vogon Royal Opera with a libretto by Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings, tentatively titled Midsummer Green Putty.
His music cures some forms of cancer.
