Way out, beyond the heliosphere, an A.I. aboard NASA space probe Voyager 3 generates free jazz - broadcast via livestream 24/7 - until we lose contact.

Its artificial neural network was trained on John Coltrane's INTERSTELLAR SPACE with modified SampleRNN. It listened to the album 16 times then continued to make music in the style. Read more about our research into neural synthesis: https://arxiv.org/abs/1811.06633

Voyager 1 and 2 launched in 1977 carrying a mixtape Carl Sagan made called THE SOUNDS OF EARTH. It featured Blind Willie Johnson, Chuck Berry, recordings of laughter, Beethoven, Bach, Stravinsky, along with diagrams of human reproductive organs. It was intended for an audience of intelligent extraterrestrial lifeforms. However, it used a static music format previously recorded by people. Thus when Voyager 3 was launched, instead of a mixtape, it contained a neural network endlessly generating music, hoping aliens might enjoy the new invention some day.
