Stephen Hawking's Favorite Places - Symphony of Science - Netflix

The Symphony of Science is a music project created by Washington-based electronic musician John D. Boswell. The project seeks to “spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through musical remixes.” Boswell uses pitch-corrected audio and video samples from television programs featuring popular scientists and educators. The audio and video clips are mixed into digital mashups and scored with Boswell's original compositions. Two of Boswell's music videos, “A Glorious Dawn” and “We are All Connected”, feature appearances from Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, and Stephen Hawking. The audio and video is sampled from popular science television shows including Cosmos, The Universe, The Eyes of Nye, The Elegant Universe, and Stephen Hawking's Universe. Unruly Media, a video tracking service, first charted “A Glorious Dawn” on September 21, 2009. A month later, the video had received more than a million views and was ranked in the music category on YouTube as one of the top rated videos of all time. On November 9, 2009, Third Man Records released a 7-inch single of “A Glorious Dawn” for the 75th anniversary of the birth of Carl Sagan.

Sampled from various clips from LeVar Burton's program Reading Rainbow, the song contains three choruses spoken by Burton. The title takes its name from the first of these: Whether you head north, south, east or west A book can be your passport From your own neighborhood to the craters of the moon In your imagination A book lets you zoom through time and space But don't bother packing, you can stay in one place Zoom (zoom) through time and space But you don't have to take my word for it There are stories everywhere you look If you look in the right way New castles to build, mysteries to be solved The answer is in a book “Reading Rainbow Remixed: In Your Imagination” on YouTube.
