Fictions #25 w/ Gigsta – The Cosmos Special

11 September 2018

In 1977, NASA launched two spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, on a grand tour of the solar system. Attached to each of these probes is a beautiful golden record containing a message for any extraterrestrial intellignce that might encounter it, perhaps billion of years from now. 

Gigsta acquired the recently commercialised copy of the record with greetings, sounds and music of planet earth. For this edition of Fictions, she played some of these tracks, read some of its texts and transmitted further – adding her own thoughts and suggesting some subjective selection.
