CD Reviews

Music of the spheres - Aristotle, eat your heart out
Daniel R Barnett | Dallas, TX United States | 02/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Possibly one of NASA's most avant-garde projects ever, SYMPHONIES OF THE PLANETS is a five-CD set that is now out of print. Put simply, it consists of recordings made by Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 as they passed by the various planets and moons of our solar system. Although sound as we perceive it cannot travel in the vacuum of space, each planet and moon emits its own electromagnetic "signature" that can be picked up by the right instruments, and those emanations can be converted into sound and recorded onto compact discs for your listening enjoyment.

Of the five discs in the set, Volume 1 is my personal favorite, but all of them are definitely worth checking out. Each disc is only around 30 minutes long, but those 30 minutes are packed with cosmic ambience that is even more profound when you consider that no human artist composed this. Fans of Dr. Fiorella Terenzi's similar recordings of space will find this stuff to their liking, although a bit more "dark" and atmospheric than hers.

By all means, check it out while you have the chance."
Really cool

"I have to say, this CD is really wonderful for what it's meant to be. It's not a music CD, and it's not something you're likely to listen to on a daily basis. If you go in with the understanding that it's a disc full of creepy "electronic" sound, then you won't be in for any unpleasant surprises. Made from recordings of the Voyager probes, these "sounds" actually exist in the form of magnetic fields around the various planets. It's very very cool from a novelty perspective, and if you happen to like this sort of thing for meditative purposes."

"This has to be the ultimate relaxation/meditation CD of all time.

I have used this CD for over ten years as I do massage (at 30 minutes per play it's perfect for timing my sessions) and every single client who has heard it has commented on how relaxing and peaceful it is.

I have also played it on my office computer in a perpetual loop during the day and find that my stress levels decrease significantly.

The gently shifting, semi-aquatic, gong-like soundscapes morph and fade from one atmosphere to the next in a hypnotic kaleidoscope of sound.

I URGE anyone who has the slightest curiosity about this CD to buy it and listen for themselves."
