This release has probably similar roots as the more well known music project Symphony of Science, which releases tracks and remixes focused on scientific topics. (Note to self: queue a review for that.) Where was I? Ah yes, this release focuses on pulsating synthesizer sounds and soft percussion. Some songs go a little overboard, but on balance the tracks are well behaved. Judge for yourself with my two favourite picks:
Pick Another Dot heavily draws from Carl Sagan’s metaphor equating Earth with a Pale Blue Dot when viewed from great distance (think Mars and beyond).
Perspective of Perspectives quotes the movie Contact, whose source novel was written by – surprise – Carl Sagan. Yes, I am biased… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
