NASA’s Orbit Pavilion sound experience landed at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens for a four-month stay. The new project, called “Five,” pairs The Huntington with five different organizations over five years, bringing in a range of contemporary artists who respond to collections and themes drawn from some aspect of The Huntington’s rich library, art, or botanical collections.

The first collaboration is with NASA and visual strategists from its Jet Propulsion Laboratory who conceived of the sound installation, representing the movement of the International Space Station and 19 earth satellites through artistically created sounds. The idea for an installation to convey the “sounds of satellites” is the brainchild of Dan Goods and David Delgado.

Inside the structure is where things get really interesting: as each satellite flies overhead through space, a corresponding sound is emitted from each of the 28 speakers mounted on the structure’s interior wall. Visitors walking into the structure hear a new kind of symphony, with a sound interpreting each of the satellites’ various missions: among them a human voice, the crashing of a wave, a tree branch moving, a frog croaking. The “soundscape” was composed by Oakland-based sound artist Shane Myrbeck.
