Exoplanetary music

Two years ago I made this contribution to the fantastic disquiet junto collaboration project: ... intervalls

This is music made from the stars. I took the intervals from these 7 planets that were discovered the other day, and used them both as tonal intervals (-> "1x, 4/3x 2x, 3x, 5x, 8x. If you think of those as vibrating strings, they form a chord or scale: the slowest planet is the root, then fourth, octave, octave and fifth, two octaves and major third, three octaves.") but as well as distance in time (first note repeats every bar, second note every 4/3 bar, next one every two bars etc.) and build this vibraphone pattern with it. The rest is arrangement and some acoustic guitar picking on a saturday morning after breakfast while the kids are playing.

I heard it today again by accident, and it´s really nice, I find. So I though I share here ...
