Moving on! Have you ever listened to outer space? Outer space sounds awesome! When I was growing up, I always thought of space as a noiseless void, due to that whole vacuum thing, but today we have the technology to measure the wavelengths that exist out there in the deep, dark vastness and convert them into sounds we can hear with our human ears. NASA has posted some of the collected sounds here, and this video also has a sample of what it sounds like out among the stars.
"The recorded sounds are the complex interactions of charged electromagnetic particles from the solar wind, ionosphere and planetary magnetosphere," says the video, and the recordings include the sound of Saturn's rings, Neptune, Jupiter, rings or Uranus (heh heh) and more. While listening to the atmospheric noise, I started to think of all the bands that would definitely make some great (albeit a little freaky) music out of it. Like, why hasn't Boris or Sunn O))) come in and turned the rings of Uranus into a song? Which brings us to this week's question: Which music genre would you most like to see make use of the space sounds? And you get (imaginary) bonus points for leaving a comment on which specific band you think would put the sounds to good use.
