Overview

Combining her passion for music with a remarkable scientific discovery that heavenly objects emit radio waves which are very similar to musical notes, Dr. Fiorella Terenzi took data from a radio galaxy known as UGC 6697 and translated it into frequencies that can be heard by humans, then played it on a synthesizer. Whooshes, buzzing, oscillating frequencies and deep didjeridu-like drones combine to sound like nothing else on the planet -- or in space. This is not music in a traditional sense; there is no melodic development or harmony, except on the last track, "Cosmic Time," where our friendly UGC 6697 is accompanied by harp, hand drums, and synthesizers for a lovely fusion of earth and space. If you've ever wondered what it sounds like out in space, or have an adventuresome ear, listen to the real space music. ~ Backroads Music/Heartbeats
