Message in a Space Bottle

Two spacecrafts, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, were launched by NASA in 1977. Now located in interstellar space and considered the farthest man-made objects from Earth, these spacecrafts left our solar system in 2004 carrying unique images and sounds from planet Earth to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrial life, should they ever meet. These sounds were engraved on a gold-plated copper phonograph record called the "Golden Record."

This sound generator relies on a subset of the Golden Record tracks. Playing all sliders at the same time creates a hubbub that could be considered the white noise of planet Earth itself, if we were heard from a distance in space. This generator is a powerful noise blocker, efficiently covering speech in noisy open offices.

Credits for this generator go to the National Aeronautics and Space Association (NASA), and as well to Carl Sagan, who chaired the committee responsible for assembling the images and sounds that traveled with the Voyager ships.

  This generator is easily the most powerful sound blocker I've ever encountered. Because of it, I can get my misophonia under control well enough to go to restaurants with my family, which I haven't been able to do for years. No other sound or dampening method has come close.

  Surprisingly great music for studying about Music therapy, identity and culture <3

  Festival background

  I suffer from auditory hallucination/brain noise, and this is as close to an example as I can get!

  Like a ritual

  I love this hypnotic multicultural ambient. I love the idea that every musician everywhere is part of the same thing. I wish one day the internet can bring all musicians together and everyone can hear and feel each other.

  This is so interesting to listen to. In a way it feels almost transcendental. A beautiful reminder of the diversity on Planet Earth and a wonderful substitute for when I just don't have the time to listen to all tracks on the Voyager Golden Record. This makes me so happy.

  It sounds like band practice two minutes before class starts where everyone is practising their own piece.

  Animate the Voyager Planet Earth sounds and overlay with the Shortwave and Numbers Stations to feel like you're eavesdropping on all the world's broadcasts!

  Wonderful! I have this running with animate and it reminds me of the classic ambient track 'On Earth' from the album 1194 by Woob.
