December 5, 12:00-1:00, What Is Orbit Pavilion Sound Experience?

November 8th, 2016

Between now and February 27, 2017, the Orbit Pavilion Sound Experience exhibit is at the Huntington Botanical Garden and Library in Pasadena. This project is the brainchild of JPL Visual Strategists Dan Goods and David Delgado, in collaboration with composers and architects.

Orbit is a sound experience that allows you to listen to the movement of NASA’s Earth Science satellites as they pass across the sky above you. By pairing the trajectory data of each spacecraft to artistically created sounds, you can listen to spacecraft move across the sky much like you hear a plane passing over your head.

Whether you have already seen the exhibit, or plan to see it during the coming weeks, this is a great opportunity to hear from Dan and David. How did the ideas came from? What to expect for the experience? What kinds of feedback have they heard from? Come to the Hub (111-104) on Monday, December 5, 12:00-1:00!
