The musical content in this sound installation reflects the orbits’ timeframe within which asteroids might impact the Earth. The composition will only be complete at the exact moment of collision – in other words, the end of the world.
Each asteroid has been given a sound interpretation according to data from NASA’s Near Earth Object Program.
The position of each sound (asteroid) within the soundscape interprets the relative position between the Earth (the observer), and the asteroid’s orbit, which remain in constant motion through space and time. As the observer moves the projection around in space as an act of “searching,” the interactive star map and the the sounds align to reveal the location of the asteroids in space.

Astronomers at Stanford University recorded acoustical pressure waves in the Sun by carefully tracking movements on its surface with the Michelson Doppler Imager on the SOHO spacecraft. Acoustical waves bounce from one side of the Sun to the other in about two hours, causing its surface to oscillate. These sound waves are normally at frequencies too low for the human ear to hear, so the scientists have sped up the waves 42,000 times and compressed 40 days of vibrations into a few seconds…
Using these recordings I created a musical instrument using an old Tascam four-track tape recorder and a three minute looping cassette, by recording the four tracks at different speeds I was able to create differently pitched variations of the original sound and using the volume sliders, pitch and EQ settings I am able to control these tones making a playable version of the original recordings of the Sun.
Blanca Regina will play with live projections and live processed voice and objects

Part Inspired part disillusioned by Pythagorean Harmony Of The Spheres. Our aim is to create a musical performance based on the principals of scale, harmony, distance, and dissonance.
