You are assigned by NASA to decide what music will be sent onto space on the Voyager 3's "golden record"
What tracks do you choose to be on there and why?
I can't for the fucking life of me find a rip of this thing ANYWHERE
Does anyone have a link to this shit?
Good thread so far
Probs some Death Grips, or Kanye, or Animal Collective, or some post-rock cuz I'm so smart and indie xDDD
There's ~90 minutes of sound on the record, so assuming an average of 4 minutes a song, say 22 songs (22.5 but rounding down to be conservative).
I'd try to collect a good variety of music I enjoy:
1. Mozart - Piano Sonata No. 12
2. Chet Baker - My Funny Valentine
3. Astrud Gilberto, João Gilberto & Stan Getz - The Girl from Ipanema
4. John Lennon - Imagine
5. Pink Floyd - Time
6. XTC - Dear God
7. Joy Division - New Dawn Fades
8. Blondie - Heart of Glass
9. Grateful Dead - Unbroken Chain
10. My Bloody Valentine - Sometimes
11. Truckfighters - Desert Cruiser
12. Radiohead - Paranoid Android
13. Animal Collective - Also Frightened
14. Neutral Milk Hotel - Marching Theme
15. Ionic Vision - My Cell
16. Sleater-Kinney - Night Light
17. Tennis - Origins
18. Beach House - Myth
19. Morning Hands - Your Ocean
20. John Maus - Hey Moon
21. Dave Burrell - Echo
22. Melody's Echo Chamber - Some Time Alone, Alone
This leans very heavily on the psychedelic rock aspect. Was this purposeful?
Also the furthest radio signals have been into space was sent by Hitler's speech in Germany that would have reached alien contact so we would want some German tunes.
Also this shit would be dope
Not really, I guess I just tried to pick an assortment of artists I like, and psychedelia being a favorite I naturally tended to select that sound.
Also, just looked up that album. Yes.
