Summary
Discusses an excerpt of music from the Yolngu people included as part of a time capsule, The Sounds of Earth, (a gold-plated copper disc containing sounds and images portraying the diversity of life and culture on Earth) carried on the spacecrafts Voyager 1 and Voyager 2; includes information on the original recording at Milingimbi, Northern Territory, in 1962 by anthropologist Sandra Le Brun Holmes; musicians Djawa, Mudpo and Waliparu; music recorded (excerpts from 'Morning Star' and 'Moikoi'); includes advice that information about the music supplied by American astronomer Carl Sagan, in Murmurs of Earth : The Voyager Interstellar Record, is incorrect; concludes that the music is 'a mark of the resiliance and adaptability of Aboriginal culture'
