App Store Description

If you could hear the universe, what songs would it play?

With the AstroCantus app the music of the universe is in your hands, and it is uniquely yours to control. AstroCantus turns the sky, over your head, into an endless, beautiful score of infinite musical and educational possibilities. As stars, galaxies and nebulae touch the celestial meridian, they play an instrument and scale that you select. Imagine the possibility of both hearing and seeing the universe in real time!

AstroCantus converts the celestial map into an infinite musical soundtrack that you define: from a delicate nocturne to a vast space symphony, all at a touch on your iPhone.

“What a striking experience. To listen to a song ‘played’ by the's as though God is playing the piano with a childlike sweetness. Random, and yet with melody revealing and discovering itself one note at a time.” 
Beth Nielsen Chapman – Hit Singer-Songwriter, Lecturer
