Shoreditch, London

It’s been almost four decades since NASA launched their twin Voyager probes — now the farthest manmade objects from Earth, at roughly 12 billion miles from our humble home. The vessels are famously home to a pair of Golden Records — one-sided LPs compiled with the help of Carl Sagan and others as audio time capsules of the human experience — each tossed like beautiful bottled messages into the black sea of space. 

Both probes are also home to instruments that transmit electromagnetic signals back to Earth — recording the unique “sounds” emitted from the celestial bodies they pass on their way through the void. Portland’s Lefse Records have tapped the well of NASA’s recordings, and invited folks like Spiritualized, Beach House and The Antlers to incorporate the otherworldly sounds into a set of new recordings. 

On April 15 at 7:30pm, our friends at creative science collective SUPER/COLLIDER present a listening party for THE SPACE PROJECT— the 7" box set coming out on Record Store Day that compiles the cosmic results. The listening party is preceded by a roundtable with The Quietus’ Luke Turner, space scientist Professor Andrew Coates, astronomer Dr. Radmila Topolovic and astrostatistician Dr. Daniel Mortlock, discussing the Voyager missions and the lasting effects they’ve had on our relationship with the stars.
