It’s been a hot, rough day for this Venusian. Work here is a toxic environment. All I want to do is pour a drink, put my flippers up, and space out to some smooth Martian grooves. A Gin and Sonic.
You may have seen my last post, NASA’s rover, Perseverance, has landed on Mars. NASA have recorded some incredible audio of the landing and made the samples available for download.
All you need to do is create an after dark worthy tune featuring any mix of the available NASA samples using your favourite piece/s of elektron equipment. Post your results below! Can’t wait to hear some truly cosmic tunes.
Whatever you choose, at least one of the samples must be from Mars, and at least one featured sample must be unaltered.
Maybe you want to include this phenomenal blast wave high energy from Cassiopeia A?
The sky is the limit.
Remember, a day on Venus lasts more than 116 Earth days, so make your offering ambient, please - it has been a very long day.
They say Mars has no atmosphere, but I’m sure you can prove them wrong.
So, what do you say?
Got some nep Tunes for us?
The full list of NASA audio files available for download on the official NASA site as an MP3 or M4R, plus some high quality .wav of the Perseverance Rover also listed
EDIT: @Microtribe has made a particulary interesting suggestion to take into account the way sounds travel on Mars
