Turns out the Universe is one massive space synth and you can hear it

NASA has released the sounds of space and as you can hear in the video above, some of them are downright spooky.

Kepler: Star KIC7671081B is a particular favourite of ours and the Kepler telescope has form in the synthesizer arena as it has helped provide the source material for the Synthesis Technology E352 module.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians.
