NASA - Symphonies of the Planets

Post by tomorrowstops » Mon Apr 14, 2014 12:28 pm

All y'alls making ambient music.....just stop. This is where it peaked!

I didn't realize a Voyager could do all this? Go Moog! :mrgreen:



Anybody own a copy of this 5-disc set?

I do have the complete box. Interesting stuff but I sometimes wonder whether it´s really that authentic, or whether someone really faked some recordings, using processed sound, synthesisers etc. The mastering was done using the Bedini Audio Spatial Expander/Environment (BASE), does anybody remember?

Brian Williams aka Lustmord used recordings of this box set for his own "Arecibo" album.

I know. I'd love to hear the raw, unprocessed field recordings. It at least sounds like there's a c**p ton of reverbs and delays on the finish product. Not quite 1977 (voyager 1 mission, right?) technology either....

I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

She has freakishly big hands..

This recording goes into the new age category where "Top 200 Whale Songs" CD's rule.

Love that Keytar.

So does Uma Thurman but, as far as I can recall, no-one has questioned Uma´s gender yet.

That keytar video up there is appalling... "Jeder kann elektronische Musik machen!" (Ralf Hütter/Kraftwerk, Düsseldorf concert, 10-31-91)

That's because Uma is a non-gendered alien and most everyone knows that.
