Melodysheep is the creative force behind the Symphony of Science series of music videos. This time around, he weaves beautiful and poetic statements about the universe together with the philosophic implications of our new insights. As usual, he uses the voices and words of famous modern scientists with clever auto-tune manipulation and catchy electronic music to spectacular effect.
“Our Place in the Cosmos”, the third video from the Symphony of Science, was crafted using samples from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, Richard Dawkins’ Genius of Charles Darwin series, Dawkins’ TED Talk, Stephen Hawking’s Universe series, Michio Kaku’s interview on Physics and aliens, plus added visuals from Baraka, Koyaanisqatsi, History Channel’s Universe series, and IMAX Cosmic Voyage. The themes present in this song are intended to explore our understanding of our origins within the universe, and to challenge the commonplace notion that humans have a superior or privileged position, both on our home planet and in the universe itself.
He is one of the first musicians to join the Rock Beyond Belief lineup, which you can read about here (and watch two more of his excellent videos).
