New Sounds takes a sonic journey with a program of "Space" music. Works inspired by the stars are highlighted, including Aaron Jay Kernis's Voices of Ganymede and Steven Edelman's Passport to the Universe. Both were soundtracks originally composed for the new Hayden Planetarium show at the Museum of Natural History, and, in the case of Endelman, based on astronomical data gathered from the great observatories.
