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
