13/11/2014 – Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko-Untitled (2014)

After claiming another nugget of space thanks to science, it appears that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is actually emitting oscillations (due to its magnetic field). While this isn’t audible to the human ear due to being 40-50 millihertz, however after increasing the frequencies a recording has been made.



Whether this is part of a longer transmission or will remain to be seen, or heard, but from this one and a half minute excerpt Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko seems to be in to prog rock and early electronic music. While there is no such music there is a melody is and it is reminiscent of Luigi Russolo, Otto Luening, Musique Concrète and a bit of George Harrison’s Electronic.



One thing is certain this is the last we’ve heard from Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. If they’re releasing tracks of this quality, the album which should be dropping next year, will definitely be one to look out for!

  1. First time I’ve heard this and I kinda like it. A friend of mine would love this genre for sure.

    Absolutely awesome. I was actually looking for some articles about commercial drone usage, but I stumbled upon your page, and this left me speechless. This is going to be a new music genre in the future. Music with actual “meaning”. Btw is there something similar on the Moon surface? Would it sound differently?

    • I expect that all planets (and comets) are emitting a form of ‘music’ and their size changes the sound produced. I’d love to hear other planets.
