Psyche Inspired

Journey To Psyche – A 3D Experience

Date:February 20, 2019

Major: music

Genre/Medium: music/sound

About the work: For this piece, I did some experimenting with 3D sound, or binaural sound. This is something that I’ve been interested in for a long time and was able to implement in this piece. I wanted to combine music and the 3D sound aspect to tell a sort of story on the way to the asteroid that uses sound bites from previous NASA missions, showing how far we’ve come leading up to the Psyche mission. In essence, it’s like a film score with 3D sound elements. I had a blast doing it, and I got some help from an actress friend of mine, Katrina Dykstra, who played the little fairy you’ll hear about halfway through. All that said, grab a pair of over-ear headphones, find a quiet room, sit back, close your eyes, and be taken on the journey!

Psyche Inspired Overview

Psyche Inspired is a program that brings undergraduate students from any discipline or major together to share the excitement, innovation, and scientific and engineering content of NASA’s Psyche mission with the public in new ways through artistic and creative works. These works will be posted below and highlighted on Twitter and Facebook. View the full resolution images in the image gallery. ASU undergraduate Brooke Owen is the student manager of Psyche Inspired, assisted by ASU undergraduate Brianna Orrill, a former Psyche Inspired intern.

Psyche Inspired was piloted at ASU during the 2017-2018 academic year. The works from the 2017-2018 Psyche Inspired cohort are collected in a downloadable book that tells the story of Psyche through musical scores, sculptures, painting, 3-D models, photography, acrylic art, needlepoint, stop-motion films, and mixed media.
