The Symphony of Science is a music project created by Washington-based electronic musician John Boswell. The project seeks to “spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through musical remixes.” Boswell uses pitch corrected audio and video samples from television programs featuring popular scientists and educators.
This is a tribute to great minds of science, intended to spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through the medium of music.
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.
