Dear Friends, one of my compositions “Unevenness” will be send to space by NASA integrated in the OSIRIS-REx Mission in September 3, 2016.
MISSION TO BENNU
The first U.S. mission to return samples from an asteroid to Earth, addressing multiple NASA Solar System Exploration objectives.
The OSIRIS-REx Mission seeks answers to questions that are central to the human experience: Where did we come from? What is our destiny? OSIRIS-REx is going to Bennu, a carbon-rich asteroid that records the earliest history of our Solar System, and will be bringing a piece of it back to Earth. Bennu may contain the molecular precursors to the origin of life and the Earth’s oceans. Bennu is also one of the most potentially hazardous asteroids and has a relatively high probability of impacting the Earth late in the 22nd century. OSIRIS-REx will determine Bennu’s physical and chemical properties, which will be critical for future scientists to know when developing an impact mitigation mission.
OSIRIS-REx is scheduled to launch in September and travel to the asteroid Bennu. The #WeTheExplorers campaign invites the public to take part in this mission by expressing, through art, how the mission’s spirit of exploration is reflected in their own lives. Submitted works of art will be saved on a chip on the spacecraft.
This sound work explores the concept of unevenness. Developing some dynamic articulations of different sound elements, juxtaposing, fragmenting and texturing, giving relevance to minimal sonic elements that are in the boarders of the system reproductive capability, generating sonic immanence and disturbance. The sonic materials is based in field recording and digital granular signal processing. Using synthesizer technical and collage methodologies, focus in pitch manipulation and amplitude, to fiend secondary sound quality in a non-sonic and non-objectual dimension of the materials and substances, approaching reality as a dynamic vibration camp of intangible constituents.
