Carl Sagan: "A Glorious Dawn" f. Stephen Hawkin (Video)
"If you wish to make a pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe," croons an auto-tuned Carl Sagan, thus kicking off "A Glorious Dawn," which Third Man Records is releasing as a 7" on Nov. 9. to coincide with the astronomer's birthday.
"A Glorious Dawn" is by composer John Boswell, who remixed words from Carl Sagan -- culled from his "Cosmos" television series -- into a piece of electronica. Featuring Stephen Hawkin, this weirdly awing video fuses the wonder of science, electronic-music optimism and 80's optimism into relevant trip hop. [Daily Swarm]
