Party's Alma Music Box lets listeners connect with the cosmos

Imagine being Alma – a radio telescope in Chile’s inhospitable Atacama Desert – peering into outer space day in, day out, your 66 antennas straining to detect activity. It’s clear that you’re doing immensely valuable work, but the information you gather is expressed in graphs and numbers. Bor-ing, at least to us nitwits.

To draw attention to your efforts, while giving you the rock-star status you deserve, creative agency Party has converted the radio waves you receive from R Sculptoris – a dying red giant 1500 light years away – into music. A beautiful lament, Party’s ‘celestial music box’ lets the listener connect to the cosmos and offers a last salute to a heavenly body gone forever.
