Singer Andrew Huang has given us the ultimate interpretation of the Beatles' "Across The Universe" with an instrument that has quite literally travelled across the universe, or at least our solar system: Comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko.
, the spacecraft Rosetta launched and spent the next seven years maneuvering into position to rendezvous with the comet. On November 12, the Philae Lander separated from the craft and landed on the comet's surface. And then we received our first images and sounds from this massive chunk of rock hurtling through space at roughly 42,000 miles per hour
Andrew Huang says of his creation
, "When I first heard that the ESA had not only landed on but recorded audio from a comet, I knew I had to make something out of it. This is my reworking of the Beatles' awesome cosmic ballad "Across the Universe" which, apart from my singing, was created entirely with sounds from the Rosetta space probe's recording of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko."
Andrew also recorded a "making of" video to show the creative process behind this stunning track. Andrew Huang will be releasing an entire album of songs produced entirely with the comet as his band. To learn more about the making of this track, check out the video below and visit Andrew's website
