Spacecraft testing reimagined by Scott Wilson.

"Inspired by J. G Ballard, and the fact that the original sound arrived with a clear beginning, middle and end, I sought to highlight the irony of machines testing machines in order to realise a human desire to escape the planet. To that end, I used a series of simple freeware tools to manipulate the sound (machines testing machines) to arrive at a result that might reflect my desires, but which now exists apart from them and, like the objects we send into space, will outlast me."

Part of the Space is the Place project - for more information, see
