Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This composition has arised from the awe of space and from the wonder that man is capable of projects such as the sending of two unmanned spacecrafts into interstellar space: the Voyagers 1 and 2. In 2012, about 35 years after the launch these unmanned probes crossed the boundary of the solar system and have sent on their journey masses of files with data to Earth. In this 8 track composition the sonification of some of these files were processed.
