Voices of the Cosmos | Different Sounds Zone
Voices Of The Cosmos is a project created by two sound artists: Rafał Iwański (known from 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’ve cooperated with Sebastian Soberski, an astronomer from the Toruń Centre for Astronomy at Nicolas Copernicus University and the head of the Astronomical Observatory and Planetarium in Grudziądz. The project’s sound experts are experienced in electroacoustic music.
Voices of the Cosmos incorporates original signals and sounds from space acquired with radio telescopes. These sounds include pulsars, magnetospheres surrounding planets, the Sun, aurora, archival recordings from space missions, and other cosmic sounds. Instrumental music composed into the rhythms and tones of cosmic sounds is rich. It’s made using electronic instruments (both digital and analogue) and various acoustic objects. It’s a project unique for Europe and even the world. It uses original space recordings from Torun’s 32-metre radio telescope, among other things. 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 listeners. They garnered rave reviews in Polish and foreign press. The project has also been recognised and supported by the scientific community (Nicolas Copernicus University, Polish Astronomical Society).
