Message From Another Planet is my third completed Csound piece, finished and released in the spring of 1999.
Perhaps it was the beautiful Boston weather that inspired me to take a walk down by the river that day. I eventually found myself in front of the Museum of Science, where I had once attended a Nine Inch Nails laser show in their planetarium. I am quite fond of planetariums, with or without the industrial music. So I bought a ticket, and watched a show that featured the SETI Institute and signals from space. After the show, I walked back to my apartment and started coding, completing Message From Another Planet within six hours time. Days later, SETI@Home was launched.
