Nelly Ben Hayoun is Designer of Experiences at the SETI Institute. In 2012, Ben Hayoun assembled the world first International Space Orchestra (ISO) composed of space scientists from NASA Ames Research Center, SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), Singularity University, and the International Space University.
Together they performed Ground Control: An Opera in Space, a 27-minute long performance on Apollo 11's mission control.
Members of the ISO include: LADEE NASA Flight Director Rusty Hunt, and NASA astronaut Yvonne Cagle.
ISO music was composed by: Damon Albarn of Blur, Bobby Womack, Beck, Penguin Café, Maywa Denki, Evan Price, with a libretto by Bruce Sterling and Jasmina Tesanovic.
On 4 August 2013, the ISO recordings were launched from Japan, broadcasting the ISO in space.
Nelly will explain her methods and results, and shows off some highlights from this cosmic-sized work.
