Space Science Sound System

Since ESA and NASA opened their audio archives to the public we have known that we can actually listen to original sounds of space.

Peter Kirn, Berlin-based electronic musician and media artist, prepared something extra special for TEDxESA. He used field recording techniques, impromptu sampling, and archival work to build a library of instruments based on the sounds of space exploration and space research that help us imagine the worlds of spaceflight and science.

With his impromptu “Space Science Sound System”, he remixed sounds of ESA’s technology, research, testing and exploration with inspirational “vocals” captured from the TEDxESA talks – and then turned the material into a jam that transformed lecture to dance hall.
