The orbital motion of the solar system's terrestrial planets are converted into musical pitches and rhythms and in an impressive and depressive cosmic coincidence, it appears that they're attempting to play True Love Waits, Radiohead's saddest song (rcharlie.com/post/fitter-happier/). To help them out, we enlist singer-songwriter Thom Gill to cover the vocals and choose real asteroids that naturally provide the required bass notes. The entire swarming asteroid belt produces the deep drone that begins and ends this gloomy cosmic dance.
