golden record

The Golden Record consists of 115 analog-encoded photographs, greetings in 55 languages, a 12-minute montage of sounds on Earth and 90 minutes of music.

What would you put on a Golden Record?

The text below was spoken by Kurt Waldheim, the Secretary General of the United Nations.

I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universe that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step.

Here is that recording as well as recordings by other speakers. Feel free to send me your recording of the same text.

Original Waldheim recording

The recording in Korean by Jay Jeong  2018

 

 

More info on the Golden Record. This is the show opening clip.

40 years ago in 1977, CKMS radio and the Voyager spacecrafts were launched. in a few years, the spacecrafts will power down, as their nuclear power source dwindles. We trust CKMS will be broadcasting for many more years than that.

The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecraft. The records are thought to be able to remain intact for a billion years.
The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. Those records are considered as a sort of, time capsule.

Carl Sagan noted that “The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. The launching of this ‘bottle’ into the cosmic ‘ocean’ says something very hopeful about life on this planet.

Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind, thunder and animals (including the songs of birds and whales). To this they added 30 musical selections from different cultures and eras, spoken greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages, and other human sounds, like footsteps and laughter.

Here is an excerpt of President Carter’s official statement placed on the Voyager spacecraft for its trip outside the Solar System, June 16, 1977:

We cast this message into the cosmos … Of the 200 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, some – perhaps many – may have inhabited planets and space faring civilizations. If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message: This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope some day, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations. This record represents our hope and our determination and our goodwill in a vast and awesome universe.

Hi team,
Can you please a recording to my time slot, maybe one of the Beta ones. 
I’m trying to do it from where I am but either the connection here is terrible (up north) or the computer at the station is slow when listing media. 
The show is at 7pm. 
Please let me know.

Hey Dear Ones.  How is Autumn so far?


I have another wonderful interview for your enjoyment and I hope you don’t miss this one.  Please contact:  Ola Mazzuca at:  ola@indoorrecess.com.


Have fun with this one! 

 

Hope you’re enjoying the week! Wanted to send you a note about JUNO Award-winning Canadian guitarist/songwriter/producer, Jesse Cook. He will be Kitchener on November 15 for a show at Centre in the Square sharing music from his new album, Beyond Borders, and I would love if we could set up an interview with him around the show, or while he is in town. Would you be interested in setting something up within the coming weeks? Jesse is an incredible performer, so I’d be happy to request a spot on the media list if you’d like to check out the concert, as well.

 

Beyond Borders was released on September 15 via eOne and follows the success of Jesse’s previous album, One World, and blends a variety of global elements, blurring lines between sound and style. I’ve included a link to the stream below so you can check it out, in addition to more great stories and details about the album. Two years in the making (with Jesse writing, arranging and recording the music in his home studio in Toronto), the album explores a sonic landscape undefined by geography, ethnicity and genres, as Jesse adds his unique, contemporary nuances through his distinct and intricate guitar style. The album’s first single, Double Dutch, exemplifies this with rhythms of Spain and Cuba, and salsa styles influenced by Miami and New York, over a djembe line – it has a great music video you can check out below. Born in Paris to Canadian parents, Jesse has recorded in seven countries on three continents, collaborating with Egyptian, Colombian, Brazilian, African and Armenian musicians to develop a singular synthesis of flamenco, jazz, R&B, electronic and world music. A father of two, master barista, filmmaker and world traveler, he has released 10 albums to-date, garnering eleven JUNO nominations – and a win for 2001’s Free Fall – in the World Music and Instrumental categories. I have attached Jesse’s bio, and included the latest press release announcing the album below my signature for more details. Please let me know what you think.

  

Thanks!

Ola

The album’s first single, Double Dutch, exemplifies this with rhythms of Spain and Cuba, and salsa styles influenced by Miami and New York, over a djembe line – it has a great music video you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOjctd1mNME. It features Egyptian vocalist, Maryem Tollar, who adds improvised melodies to the track. A Mi Nina is a slow flamenco/rumba solo piece from Jesse, which was recorded in one take in a small studio in his countryside cabin, and is an ode to Jesse’s daughter, as it his her favourite song. Another track to start with includes funk and tabla-accented Wisdom of a Thousand Years, which was co-written with Bulgarian vocalist, Tamar Ilana, and features violinist, Chris Church. Jesse is not only a musician but a filmmaker that produces, shoots and edits his own videos – he recently traveled to Cartagena, Colombia, the hometown of his collaborator, Juan Medrano, to film the video for Hembra:  https://youtu.be/i9srZFMhCZU.
