Sounds from Space

Sounds recorded with a VLF-Antenna picking up electro-magnetic activity in earth’s atmosphere and ESA’s CoRoT Satellite. This satellite picks up tiny variations of the light intensity from stars and sends that data to earth. For A Tentative Call to the Other we convert these variations – vibrations of light – into sound.

We wish to thank Eric Michel, researcher at Paris Observatory’s LESIA Lab and the CoRoT space mission – developed and operated by the French space agency CNES, with participation of ESA’s RSSD and Science Programmes, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Germany, and Spain
