28-01-2018 12:00:00 28-01-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Planetarium: Voyager Golden Record Session with Justin Carter and Josh Dunn | 6:00 PM Line-up / Josh Dunn Justin Carter Planetarium is an immersive hi-fi listening session. We clear the floor between our custom speakers, so you can bring pillows, blankets, sleeping bags or anything else you like to get comfortable. Lie on the floor, stretch out on the couch, and get lost in music. Tonight's edition of Planetarium is dedicated to the Golden Voyager Records. In 1977 NASA shot two crafts into space, each one equipped with a pair of golden records. Contained on the records are images and sounds of earth: greetings in 55 languages, whale songs, rumbling engines, and, of course, music – everything from a Gamelan orchestra to Stravinsky to Johnny B. Goode. The hope is that one day, perhaps millions or even billions of years from now, the records will serve as a message to the inhabitants of some distant planet. This evening, we play reproductions of the golden records in their entirety and try to imagine what it might be like to hear these sounds of earth for the very first time. Josh Dunn and Justin Carter will play other interstellar music before and after the airing of the golden records. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=272034 Nowadays Nowadays
