Marching to Saturn

This cut contains sounds I made on my Moog synth, sampled audio loops and sounds recorded by NASA of the solar wind impinging on the atmosphere of saturn's polar regions (like our Earth's aurora borealis) and radio frequencies emanating from Saturn's rings as the space probe Cassini moved over them. The evidence suggests that each tone is produced by the impact of a meteoroid on the icy chunks that make up the rings.
