wasteLAnd : Space Administration
Space Administration sets a visual presentation of Ken Hunt's poem "Apollo Spacecraft" inside music for bass and electronics by Scott Worthington. The poem uses NASA's voice transcript of the Apollo 11 mission by erasing most of the words and leaving the time stamps. Through the erasure, Hunt creates an ode to the god Apollo and a rumination on space travel. Worthington's music lets the bass float weightlessly above a galactic electronic background, created mostly with a Moog synthesizer (a company which became popular just a few years before the Apollo 11 mission).
