Though we can’t hear them, stars propagate some incredibly soothing soundscapes through the vacuum of space. And for the first time, music composed from the acoustic waves that blast out of these sublime celestial bodies has been made available online.
The music is arranged by Brian Eno, the composer who coined the term “ambient music”, and has had some of the most influential contributions to popular music over the last couple of decades.
The music was composed by taking the infrasound acoustic waves created by stars and speeding them up until they can be heard by the human ear. The resulting track, “Starsounds,” is as haunting as it is otherworldly.
According to Retrofuturista, the music is the latest project from the Starmus Festival, an annual event created by astrophysicist and Queen guitarist Brian May and astrophysicist Garik Israelian to bring together space science and the arts.
