NASA collection of samples: use in remixing and “found sound” creative projects

NASA has made a huge collection of audio recordings available under a Creative Commons licence and they are perfect for using in music tech projects with students. The recordings are from historic space flights and from current missions.

I LOVE this collection of sound effects, ambient recordings, astronaut dialogue and speeches from NASA.  Not only is it fascinating to hear real-life sounds recorded in outer-space, the collection includes the original iconic sound-bites from astronauts and staff working in the control center like “Houston, we have a problem”, “That’s one small step…” and the Apollo 11 launch countdown.

You can listen to the sounds and dialogue samples here on Soundcloud.

The NASA sounds collection…includes the following:

  • “Houston we have a problem”
  • “One small step”
  • Apollo 11 countdown
  • “The eagle has landed”
  • “Roger roll”
  • The John F Kennedy speech – “We choose the moon”
  • Launch sound effect
  • Kepler star sound effect
  • Sputnik beep
  • Spooky Saturn sound effect
  • Quindar tone sound effect
