about

This is my album for the 2017 RPM Challenge and was written and recorded entirely during February 2017.

Late last year I read that 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the first pulsar and decided I should use this as a theme. As well as the first pulsar (CP1919), I've also used the 14 pulsars on the Pioneer map (a map on the Pioneer space probes which show the location of Earth relative to these 14 pulsars). I used the rotation period of each pulsar to set the beats per minute of each track. The idea is that if you were to observe any one of these pulsars while listening to the corresponding track, they would be in synch with each other. Hence the title "Music To Watch Pulsars By"
