Voices of the Cosmos | Different Sounds Zone
Voices Of The Cosmos is a project created by two sound artists: Rafał Iwański (known for HATI, Kapital and Innercity Ensemble and the solo project X- NAVI: ET) and Wojciech Zięba, who runs the label Beast of Prey and performs solo as ELECTRIC URANUS. They have collaborated with Sebastian Soberski, an astronomer at the Toruń Centre for Astronomy at Nicolas Copernicus University and the director of the Astronomical Observatory and Planetarium in Grudziądz. The sound experts of the project are experienced in electroacoustic music.
Voices of the Cosmos contains original signals and sounds from space recorded by radio telescopes. These sounds include pulsars, magnetospheres surrounding planets, the Sun, auroras, archival recordings of space missions, and other cosmic sounds. The instrumental music composed to the rhythms and tones of the cosmic sounds is rich. It is created with electronic instruments (both digital and analogue) and various acoustic objects. It is a project unique in Europe and even the world. Among other things, it uses original space recordings from Toruń’s 32-metre radio telescope. The albums „Voices of the Cosmos” (2011), Voices of the Cosmos II” (2013) and Voices of the Cosmos III” (2019) were enthusiastically received by the audience. They received enthusiastic reviews in the Polish and foreign press. The project has also been recognised and supported by the scientific community (Nicolas Copernicus University, Polish Astronomical Society).
