The Music of the Spheres

A very cool find today thanks to Sean Williams: the music of the spheres.

So, my interest in music derived from space and/or the planets is well known. Now, some inventive programmer has come up with a Flash animation that provides some very cool ambient music derived from the orbital periods of our own solar system…including Pluto! Yay! Much as my Canada includes Quebec, my solar system includes Pluto. Listen to the whole thing and hear Pluto sing!

Reminds me a bit of an interstellar music box…

And be sure to notice at the bottom the ticker that calculates how many orbits/years of each planet pass by as you listen.

Check it out the post here and the music program here.
