Listen to the Music of a Dying Star

The ALMA Music Box exhibition’s success prompted the production of the crowd-funded compilation CD “Music for a Dying Star”.

11 international artists, including Taeji Sawai, Takagi Masakatsu, Throwing a Spoon, and Christian Fennesz composed music using the 70 unique musical loops that derived from the music box.

We helped curate the artists, make all the designs for the album, and created a website where people can zoom through space and listen to the album samples.
