Symphony of Science Music Videos
John Boswell is running “The Symphony of Science“, a musical project designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form. Three music videos combine original music with samples of appearances by Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye and Michio Kaku,
A Glorious Dawn
Boswell’s musical tribute to Carl Sagan and his cosmologist companion Stephen Hawking. Almost all samples and footage are taken from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and Stephen Hawking’s Universe series.
We Are All Connected
“We Are All Connected” was made from sampling Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, The History Channel’s Universe series, Richard Feynman’s 1983 interviews, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s cosmic sermon, and Bill Nye’s Eyes of Nye Series, plus added visuals from The Elegant Universe (NOVA), Stephen Hawking’s Universe, Cosmos, the Powers of 10, and more. It is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.
Our Place in the Cosmos
The third video was crafted using samples from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, Richard Dawkins’ Genius of Charles Darwin series, Dawkins’ TED Talk, Stephen Hawking’s Universe series, Michio Kaku’s interview on Physics and aliens, plus added visuals from Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi, History Channel’s Universe series, and IMAX Cosmic Voyage. The themes present in this song are intended to explore our understanding of our origins within the universe, and to challenge the commonplace notion that humans have a superior or privleged position, both on our home planet and in the universe itself.
This songs are available on 7″ vinyl through Jack White and friends at Third Man Records
