The world of music and astronomy collide in this cover of Sigur Rós’ song “Viðrar vel til loftárása” by the International Space Orchestra (ISO). The ISO is the world’s first orchestra of legitimate space scientists from NASA Ames Research Center, Singularity University and the SETI Institute. The cover was produced by Sigur Rós themselves, in cooperation with their long-time collaborator Alex Somers. This is not the first time the ISO teamed up with the Icelandic post-rock band. last year, the eclectic joint venture performed at the Hollywood Bowl as part of Sigur Rós’ world tour.
