Inspired by NASA and the Universe and Carl Sagan. The underlying rhythm of the track was produced by loading a NASA photograph of the Tarantula Nebula into an audio program and manipulating the sound until I had a good looping rhythm. You'll be dancing to the beat of the stars.

The footage in this video is primarily raw data from the imaging systems aboard the Cassini spacecraft, courtesy of NASA. If you'd like to explore more about the on-going Cassini Solstice Mission, currently orbiting Saturn, check it out at NASA's website: saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/index.cfm

All instruments and vocals by Kim Boekbinder. Produced by Joel Hamilton at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY.


Lyrics

The sky calls to us,
and we go, and we go.
We're getting signals from the stars,
and we go, and we go.
There are whispers in the stratosphere,
the planets say "come hear, come here."
and we go, and we go,
and we go, and we go.

The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.

The sky calls to us,
and we go, and we go.
In our fractal universe,
and we go, and we go.
Planets spin across the sky,
around their suns like nuclei,
and we go, and we go,
and we go, and we go.

The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.

The sky calls to us,
here we go, here we go.
And it feels like going home,
here we go, here we go.
We're all made of stars,
our brittle bones, our beating hearts,
here we go, here we go
here we go, here we go.

The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.
The sky is calling.
