About This Program

Welcome to the International Space Orchestra!

The International Space Orchestra (ISO) is a team of space scientists from the NASA Ames Research Center, the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Life) Institute, Singularity University and the International Space University.

As well as being an unconventional public space outreach event, ISO also acts as an experiential and hybrid interdisciplinary research environment in which space scientists and engineers were invited to implement, deconstruct, perform, sing, mix, modify, and design musical acts in control rooms, acting as a provocation to imagine and disrupt human relationships with science and technology.

In the summer of 2012 in California, ISO put on the performance Ground Control. In May 2013, the International Space Orchestra performed at the Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco in front of 2,700 people with singer Beck.

In January 2013, the International Space Orchestra feature film had its world premiere at the prestigious Rotterdam International Film Festival before starting a world tour.
