A 7 track ambient album (1h 1m 35s) — released July 9th 2021 on Gusstaff Records

This CD album "IV" contains music material of the project VOICES OF THE COSMOS from two vinyl records: LP "Interstellar Space" and limited 10"EP "Solar Sequences". It's the culmination of a decade of sound experiments and activities combining music with astronomy, which resulted in a number of audiovisual concerts, lectures and workshops as well on previous records releases: "I" (2011), "II" (2013), "III" (2019).

VOICES OF THE COSMOS is a project created by two sound artists: Rafał Iwański (musician known from HATI, Alameda 5 and Innercity Ensemble, solo performing as X-NAVI:ET) and Wojciech Zięba (solo performing as ELECTRIC URANUS) and astronomer Sebastian Soberski, manager of the Planetarium and Astronomical Observatory in Grudziadz and radio astronomer at the Institute of Astronomy at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Piwnice near Torun. VOICES OF THE COSMOS project combines efficiently the achievements of astronomy with electroacoustic music. The creators use the original extraterrestrial signals and sounds received by radio telescopes (e.g. pulsars, magnetospheres of planets, Sun, aurora borealis, masers) and other radio devices, sometimes they use sonifications and archive recordings from space missions. Instrumental tracks integrated into the processed rhythms and tones of the "space sounds" are created with electronic instruments, both digital and analogue, as well as various acoustic objects. The project has been presented many times in scientific institutions and at music festivals, in the form of audio-visual concerts, also in the version extended with astronomy lectures and sky observations. It is a unique initiative in Poland, which uses the original space recordings.

The Universe is a labyrinth made of labyrinths. Each leads to another. And wherever we cannot go ourselves, we reach with mathematics. Out of mathematics we build wagons to carry us into the nonhuman realms of the world.

Stanisław Lem, Fiasco

Melody is elemental and austere in general evoking the sense of mystery that envelops yet un-encountered realms. It is based on pulse and textures and sounds like nothing on earth, thus acquiring an emotional response from a dazzled auditory. - Santa Sangra Magazine

Enerzijds krijg je allemaal spannende, wonderlijke elektronische, psychedelische en ruimtegeluiden te horen, maar aan de andere kant weten ze daar tevens ontspannende ambient mee te fabriceren. Het heelal, elektronica en akoestische objecten worden hier prachtig vervlochten, waardoor er op natuurlijke wijze een soort nieuwe realiteit ontstaat. Die nieuwe werkelijkheid vormt er vervolgens weer en voor je het weet zit je in een mysterieuze cirkel. - Jan Willem desubjektivisten.nl

Voices Of The Cosmos donne forme à l’invisible, fait entendre l’impensable, invite l’auditeur à s’immerger dans l’inconnu. Magique. - Roland Torres SilenceAndSound

Nous ne sommes plus ici dans la musique pure, nous sommes dans une interdisciplinarité qui cherche à ouvrir les esprits sur l’infini. C’est quand même très fort. - François Becquart musicinbelgium.net
