The RAW SPACE Beam
PRIVATE PREVIEW - COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
The RawEST Sound enters the rawest Space...
Beatie Wolfe beamed her album Raw Space into Space using the Horn that proved the Big Bang with some Nobel Prize winning help
Wolfe made the first music x Space broadcast using the historic Nokia Bell Labs Holmdel Horn (that proved the validity of the Big Bang theory) with the help of the Nobel Prize winning scientist Robert Wilson who made the discovery of CMB (cosmic microwave background radiation)
Dr Wilson had to make the first update to this Horn (classified a National Historic Landmark) in 50 years to make sure Wolfe's music got past the earth's atmosphere to our Galactic friends!
The Raw Space broadcast was not of the studio version of the album, but the raw anechoic version (no reverb/EQ/effects) from the Nokia Bell Labs anechoic chamber. The idea being that for the first time, the rawest sound would enter the rawest Space as a reflection of our true humanity at a time of increased airbrushing, auto-tuning, AI
This the first time that music has been sent into Space via the Horn.
A short film about Wolfe's "Raw Space Beam" from award-winning production house The Mill. See the documentary ahead of a private preview at NASA's JPL with its first public screening at the LA Times NewStory festival, guest-curated by Beatie Wolfe. The film has been showing as part of Beatie Wolfe’s V&A exhibition.
What was incredible to learn (and Wolfe found this out only after NASA invited her to talk/play) is that her grandfather Chuck, had worked at JPL on the first series of US satellites, the Explorer and Discoverer
