Call from Mars

decide which sound we will broadcast from Mars to Earth

In March 2021 the first European planetary rover will land on Mars as part of the ExoMars mission. The rover's landing platform will carry 11 sound recordings (selected in this project) in the memory of a Czech scientific instrument. The sound recording that receives the most votes before the ExoMars probe lands on Mars will be transmitted back to Earth.

This recording features the sound of wind, seagulls, a person playing their guitar, children playing and people talking. It's a slice of life on Earth and would bring sounds that will never be possible to a planet void of trees, humans and animals. I captured it on a sunny August day in 2016.
