More Auto-Tuned Science!
by Chris Hardwick on October 19, 2009
John Boswell, the madly brilliant sound-chemist who Auto-Tuned his way into our hearts with “A Glorious Dawn” featuring Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking, has launched the laud-worthy project “Symphony of Science” which is “designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.” You couldn’t ask for a better goal than that.
The second track (on what I hope is an album’s worth of material) is entitled “We Are Connected” and features a returning Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson & Bill “50 Cent(iliter)” Nye.
I have also had the pleasure of striking up an email correspondence with Mr. Boswell, and have found him to be a top notch chap. As long as he keeps making these videos, I’ll keep posting them. It’s a much more noble use of this digital enhancement feature than some pop music assclown trying to mask his/her inability to hold a note.
While I stand and applaud this project, you may download the songs here. They are free of charge, but I highly recommend kicking in a small donation on his page to support this kind of artistic geekery.
