Symphony of the Universe

For anyone who is intrigued by the concept of “Music of the Spheres,” this TED Talk by Honor Harger is fascinating. Via TT, she “tracks the radio waves emitted by ancient celestial objects and turns them into sound, including ‘the oldest song you will ever hear,’ the sound of cosmic rays left over from the Big Bang.” As an artist, Harger uses technology to connect her audience to the universe, including the collaboration Radio Astronomy  which makes it possible to broadcast sounds from space on the internet for anyone to listen to! 

 

“There is geometry in the humming of the strings. There is music in the spacing of the spheres.”

-Pythagoras
