Electronic music artists and enthusiasts are often drawn to showcasing the universe’s most ominous elements, which they believe to be fascinating. A wide range of performances have taken place, from Vantablack stage setups to NASA X-ray beats to… music generated by a black hole?

The question that you might be asking yourself is, “How does one create music from space when there is no sound?” That, however, did not deter Belgian mathematician Valery Vermeulen from thinking outside the box in order to develop a three-track project known as Mikromedas SrgA+, which is currently in development.

Vermeulen used data collected by the Voyager Satellite, a space probe located more than 14 billion miles away, to synthesize electromagnetic radiation waves emitted by black holes and turn them into musical compositions. Voyager Satellite is a space probe located more than 14 billion miles away.

The songs that Vermeulen has uploaded are paradoxically both satisfying and eerie at the same time. Despite the fact that the body of ambient work is frequently unpredictable, it is satisfying in that it sounds exactly as ominous as one would expect given its source. When the music, on the other hand, sounds like the soundtrack to a gripping, suspenseful thriller that won’t let up, you’ll never be able to get too comfortable in your seat.

The full-length album by Vermeulen, Mikromedas AdS/CFT 001, will be released on December 3rd by Ash International. Take a look at Mikromedas SrgA+ in the video below.
