The Music of the Spheres

I collect sound files for digital music, and lately that has meant a lot of sounds of satellites, rockets, ‘sferics for an electronic music project. So this, courtesy of an EMF email, is very exciting to me. It’s not the sound of the atmosphere, but of space, the seismology of stars translated into sound! It’s courtesy of the Corot Space Telescope. Go here for more astronomy and sound, and listen to a sample.
