The "Voyager Golden Record” is a phonograph record that was included aboard both Voyager spacecrafts launched in 1977 - a bottle tossed into the cosmic ocean.
It contains sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. The Voyager 1 probe is currently the farthest human made object from Earth. Using the logic of an AI algorithm, this performance offers an alien perception of the content of the “Voyager Golden Record.” Free from all deep understanding, the algorithm re-aggregates all the sound snippets found on the record according to rules of purely formal and statistical correlations.
