http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unx0KmyYhBY On July 28th,2008 I was invited to perform Saturn Calling, a track from my CD "TRUE", at JPL in Pasadena,CA., as a part of the Cassini Program "End of Prime Mission " celebration.JPL created this video montage of photos sent back to Earth from the Cassini spacecraft now circling Saturn and its moons.The "wind" you hear in the song are the radio waves generated by the auroras of Saturn, as recorded by Cassini when it was 240 million miles away from Saturn.It was an amazing honor to perform this music in front of all of the scientists and support staff that have made the Cassini program possible.NASA and JPL created a feature on Saturn Calling, and posted it on their websites.
