A new album with the unique ‘sounds of space’ recorded from Antarctica is released free (6 May 2020).
Aurora Musicalis contains the natural radio ‘sounds’ of our planet, recorded at British Antarctic Survey’s Halley VI Research Station in Antarctica. The ‘sounds’ are accompanied by original piano music by composer Kim Cunio of the Australian National University, with image processing by Cambridge-based artist-engineer Diana Scarborough. The album release is part of the ongoing ‘Sounds of Space’ project, a collaboration between space weather research scientist Nigel Meredith of British Antarctic Survey, Diana Scarborough, and Kim Cunio. In this time of social isolation, Aurora Musicalis offers the chance to listen deeply to the acoustic ecology of our planet’s natural radio emissions from the comfort of our homes.
