Sound Design I did in Absynth. I had in mind the great monolith scene in Stanley Kubricks film A Space Odyssey. I modulated the pitch of all 3 oscillators very slowly in time to achieve tone clusters at various points in the piece.
My version of the Teletron, a mind-to-synthesizer interface conceived by Robert Schneider of The Apples in Stereo based on Mattel’s Mindflex game. Using a wireless (2.4ghz) headset, my brainwaves are converted to a variable DC voltage. This voltage can be used as a control voltage for analog synthesizers.
What you are hearing is the Moog Voyager modulated by my brain waves amplified and converted to voltage. The DC output of the Mindflex is routed to the Moog CP-251 and sent to the Voyager’s pitch and filter as well as the rate of the Moog Murf.
Just a nice spacage video to start off the week with:
Kleiner Ambient Track ausschließlich mit meinem Hartmann Neuron.
“Crickets From Outer Space” by New Wave Solar Powered Robots – Its Robots vs. Crickets in this Sci Fi animated music video. NWSPR recorded this track using three bass guitars, analog synthesizers, vocoder and drum machines.
Demo of an interactive RjDj scene for iPhone and iPod Touch. Go to http://www.reactifymusic.com/n8/space for more info and the download link.
Cool video from a live performance, very space ambient
Synthesizer live performance (excerpt) by Bruno Ender Lee; ARP Odyssey Mk III, Moog Little Phatty Stage II & Roland JP-8000. Friday, November 12. 2010 in Goldau (SZ) as supporting act to Bruno Stanek’s “Flugjahre zum Mond
The long journey to the Dog Star.

“Above all, we want everyone to be able to share in the wonder and excitement of the greatest experiment ever built. We feel passionately that everyone is capable of appreciating what is happening at CERN and that it is the responsibility of those of us already `in the know’ to find new and better ways of sharing the awe-inspiring magnificence of it all. The LHC belongs to us all; you paid for it to be built and you will enjoy the technological advances it brings.” – lhcsound.com

Space Storms can sometimes go a bit crazy, and can cause all sorts of havoc on earth, like destroying electronics, killing power grids and wrecking satellites. NASA claims that we should experience such a storm sometime around 2013.
The scientists translated measurements the vibrations into sound (as the sound itself cannot travel through the near-vacuum of space), and sped up the resulting waveforms to put them into the range of human hearing. Other than just producing some pretty amazing sounds, “sun music” has other uses as well. Professor Robertus von Fáy-Siebenbürgen, head of the solar physics research group at Sheffield University, said:
Studying the “music of the sun” would provide new ways of understanding and predicting solar flares before they happen.
Here’s a sample of what the SunSynth sounds like:
