Music In Space
When I orbited the Earth in a spaceship,
I saw for the first time how beautiful our planet is.
Mankind, let us preserve and increase
this beauty, and not destroy it!
- Yuri Gagarin, Russian Cosmonaut
During these challenging times
from the pandemic to the climate emergency, we all need to refresh our perspective and to find hope.
We just need a moment to reflect,
a moment to find a spark of optimism.
To give people a new perspective and renewed hope, we are sending a balloon into space while live-streaming the ascend to the music of Danish musician Bjørn Vidø.
We will work with ”The Overview Effect".
We are sending a balloon into
space while LIVE streaming
the ascend to music!
Music In Space
Music in Space is a multi-artistic event, played live in a mix of the original music from Bjorn, local artists and
supported by powerful speeches of hope and optimism – Transmittet live into Space.
The rise of the balloon takes approx 90 minutes
to reach maximum height, and 90 minutes to come
The soundtrack to the event including concerts,
speeches and SoMe interaction,
will via satellites be transmitted into Space.
We will interact with the crowd on
Facebook / Instagram / SoMe, so it´s not a
one way show, but people can participate, and
get their personal message out in the Sky.
Technique - How Do We Do It?
It´s pretty easy, but a lot of work…
1) Make some cool live music with local artist
2) Make a visually appealing show and
a cool live event
3) Record it with nice cameras and sound
3) Attach cameras to the balloon
4) Send the audio to space via satellites
5) Upload the visuals with audio to SoMe
6) Make a film about it
7) Travel the world with the show.
8) Spead the message
9) Make everybody send in a video with their message from space to Earth broadcasted on all SoMe.
4 years later, we are finally doing it...
We have a GPS tracker onboard for 2 reasons:
1. The balloon can be tracked from the airport.
2. We can find it again.
As we don´t know where the wind will take it,
the show ends up with us going looking for it.
It can be a National television / SoMe event in itself since the location tracking will be public.
We might have to rent a boat, if it lands in the water.
Be a part of the project.
Send a video, (max 1 minute)
with your message to the World. Then we will do our best to show it in the Stratosphere. (Upload below)
A little bit about Bjørn

Originally Bjørn started playing in Dansk Fløde.
A New York Inspired Punk Rock band.
The inspiration was Talking Heads, Ramones,
Beastie Boys, Iggy Pop, Velvet Underground.
It all started as a bit of a joke in 2004, but after 14 days, the first track was sold to a commercial. With financing for the album, soon after started Dansk Fløde playing in Japan, Guinea Bissau-Africa, New York, Berlin, London, Buenos Aires…
The music for this project is more like international Pop, with an edge.
