For the record

For The Record

Inspired by NASAs Golden Record project of the late 1970s, this music-filled talk asks what music we would choose to represent ourselves as a species should we encounter an intelligent life form.
In 1977 NASA produced two Golden Records which they strapped to the back of the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space craft and sent to interstellar space. This was a serious attempt by them to initiate communication with intelligent life somewhere out in the universe. Etched into the discs was selection of art and music that the NASA committee who created it believed represented humanity.

In this panel filmmaker Stuart Acker Holt revisits the question with a group of panelists. Each will play and discuss the piece of music they feel would best represent us in just this scenario.

The panel ties in with the release of Holts new film, FOR THE RECORD. The film incorporates interviews on this topic with artists such as Philip Glass, Goldie and Giles Peterson as well as philosophers and scientists from ESA and NASA.
