What happens when you combine NASA space sounds and Music Theory students?

Mohonasen High School’s Music Department and the Center for Advanced Technology will present “I See Stars,” a 30-minute planetarium show at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 7 at miSci in Schenectady.

The three-part multimedia exploration features original music and prose inspired by sounds and images from NASA space exploration. The student compositions are based on NASA space sounds from their site and SoundCloud, NASA images and writings, and narration from students sharing their thoughts on the universe.
