Music Inspired by Astronomy




One of my hobbies is collecting examples of music that are seriously influenced by astronomy -- I've found astronomical ideas in both popular songs and classical music. A new catalog of such music (organized by topic) has just been published, and I thought some of you might enjoy seeing the collection of weird and wonderful pieces I have found over the years. (Only pieces available on commercial CD's are included.) The list can be found at:

Most of these pieces may not be your cup of tea, but if you are dying to know what six songs include scientifically valid information or ideas about black holes, this is the place you will find an answer.  (Note that this list doesn't including anything about astronauts or space travel, nor does it include any so-called new-age "space music.)   But perhaps you can discover a few pieces that you may enjoy reading about or hearing on your own music player.
