I wanted to file this under music, because people have published a lot worse than this, but damned if I can think of a proper "artist" tag. Can you credit planets as artists?
fluffy - 2008-02-22
Traditionally, field recordings are credited to the person who did the recording, rather than to what emitted the sound. So in this case the credit should probably go to Voyager.

All hail Veeger.

Sounds like Jupiter is channeling Brian Eno.

I'm looking at a long list of five stars, many of which come from people I think well of. That said, I can't stand this crap. Every time someone thinks some random scientific phenomenon sounds like music, it ends up on the internet and I have to listen to random-ass humming.

Oh look, someone used the human genome project to generate shitty-ass music.


No, let's take protein sequences and use them to make shitty-ass music instead:


Fuck you Jupiter, you're dull and uninteresting. If you weren't exponentially larger than me, I'd kick your ass.
Syd Midnight - 2008-02-22
You probably think the sound of the wind blowing sucks too. I like natural phenomenon that sound cool.

Baldr - 2008-02-22
I'd never thought about it until now, but yes I do think the sound of the wind is boring. I'm sorry to rain on the five star parade, and I like all of your other submissions, but it just doesn't work for me.

Gamara II - 2008-02-22
Baldr, I agree with you on the other stuff, and was about to shit all over this video too. However, since the E&M frequencies are 20-20kHz and thus could (with the right setup) induce physical vibrations at audible frequencies, it's a little more legitimate to refer to this at least as "sound". It's certainly not music, but that doesn't make it any less awesome.

Generating "music" from essentially random crap like genome sequences which could be represented in all sorts of arbitrary ways is a whole different retarded story.

Baldr - 2008-02-22
Perhaps you are right Gamara. Perhaps being forced for listen to no-talent avant guard artists riding on the coattails of discovery has hardened my heart to the majesty of the Divine Architect.

Perhaps Jupiter has place in the world of music.

Anti-Pope - 2008-02-22
Not music my ass. This has a melody and a beat. Get hearing aids.

RomancingTrain - 2008-02-22
Why are you talking like you're forced to listen to these?

NoCode - 2008-02-22
I hate you, Baldr.

Baldr - 2008-02-22
Then you know what you have to do.

jreid - 2008-02-23
The actual video doesn't claim this to be music - just the poster. If you put the hippie hate aside and listen to this objectively it's pretty interesting. This is fucking Juptier - this is the crazy shit that 1.4 quadrillion km of gas clouds generate.

Baldr - 2008-02-23
Okay. Okay. I admit that this is cool, and I was wrong to one-star it. Who would have thought that Jupiter would have so many defenders?

Syd Midnight - 2008-04-25
It's been several months so nobody will read this, but For The Record, my "Gas Music from Jupiter" title was an obscure Firesign Theatre joke. On their "Everything You Know is Wrong" album, making fun of New Age conspiracy theorists, they riffed "Gas Music from Jupiter" as a New Age album.

I would have given it a better title but I have spent 10 years wondering what the fuck gas music from Jupiter would sound like, so I hope you'll understand that I just HAD to present it that way. I had no choice.

"Remember, there's a Seeker born every minute!"

BTW: Fuck you if you don't like this, it's gorgeous.

bac - 2008-04-27
I'm reading it and rock on with yo crazy namin self.

also favorited so as to help remember to listen to while on drugs.

Syd Midnight - 2010-02-27
btw Earth has its own screechy howly song, you can hear it with a ham radio. Jupiter sounds like whales, earth sounds like parakeets

TrafficCone - 2008-02-22
Thank God it's not gas music from Uranus.

Reminded me of "Black Star", for whatever reason.

Wow, now you can get all the planets' greatest hits in a box set!

Damn, out of print

Gamara II - 2008-02-22
Sad - but! The albums *might* (hint hint) be on bittorrent.

RockBolt - 2008-03-05
I've managed to listen to some of those, and now I have to wonder if Akira Yamaoka must have this album somewhere. It is so Silent Hill that I am simultaneously giddy and terrified contemplating the universe around me

Charles - 2009-09-16
Fuck, all Limewire can come up with for me is "Symphonies of the Planets unplugged in ny" and "Voyager Recordings hot remix by Miley Cyrus"

Holst's was better.

10 minutes of gas. Can we get a greatest hits?
cognitivedissonance - 2008-02-22
Jupiter is a clearly a fan of Gyorg Legeti.
TeenerTot - 2008-02-22
Oddly (or appropriately?) enough, it reminds me of the chorus-y wailing music from 2001:A Space Oddesy.
FISTFULLofSOUL - 2008-02-22
Nice try Jupiter.. but I believe it's Pete Namlook ambient classic "dark side of the moog"

Still way fucking cool tho'

I always had this idea for a movie, where sounds of Earth's atmosphere is being recorded for a couple of millenia and then played back speeded up, and there would be the voice of GOD!

I wonder if there is something like that going on in Jupiter.
Rudy - 2008-02-22
Jupiter was a lot better before he sold out back in '92. Now he's just rehashing shit for the teeny-bopper crowd.


andru strange - 2008-02-22
all of these worlds are your, except jupiter.
andru strange - 2008-02-22
shit... i forgot an s... how embarrassing.

StanleyPain - 2008-02-22
I love stuff like this.

Sounds very much like the sound design work of Alan Splet who worked on many of David Lynch's film.

I would pay for an album of these electromagnetic recordings.

Absolutely spot-on. Also, this is spellbinding.

I envy the hypothetical organisms who have developed in such a way as to live in hard vacuum and have senses able to render these noises audiable.

This really does sound like the ambient mood music I'd expect to hear wandering down a path, alone in a forest of pine trees, heavy white mist obscuring everything, occasionally hearing shuffling noises in the distance, feeling the tendrils of dread creeping up through my spine.

I think what this video needs is to have a ten minute slow-zoom into the eye of jupiter, with an equally slow fade in of the words "The Eye Is Watching." Possibly with tint and shade effects.
Keefu - 2008-08-12
That is exactly what this video needs, give this man a grant.

Imagine being able to hear this and having to float past Jupiter. That would be the most awesome and eerie experience ever, floating on by as Jupiter serenades you with its horrific macabre music. We need to find hopefully if other planets do this too, so we can rearrange Holst's original symphony into a new modern age crazy dark-ambient album of our solar system.

Syd Midnight - 2009-01-04
These are EM waves, so if your spaceship has any loose, rattly magnetic components they may vibrate this way.

nonplusplus - 2008-06-10
Now imagine this sound continuing for a hundred million years.
j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-07-07
Jupiter needs band members, so it's not just one long solo.

robotkarateman - 2008-08-13
This "space music" stuff just isn't as cool unless Fiorella Terenzi's cleavage is involved somehow.
kingofthenothing - 2009-03-21
This sure beats the sounds of whales.
sasazuka - 2014-02-22
Jupiter's music is some "Supreme Thunder", that's for sure. Or maybe "Sparkling Wide Pressure". [/sailormoon]
