Music Student Evan Coulter’s “Scintillations”

This spectacular image of the Orion Nebula star-formation region was obtained from multiple exposures using the HAWK-I infrared camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. This is the deepest view ever of this region and reveals more very faint planetary-mass objects than expected.

Evan Coulter’s “Scintillations” (live link)

Scintillations is one of a series of electronic pieces composed over the period of about a year. What sets this work apart from the others in the series is that in addition to the electronic instruments, it features several recorded guitar parts (including a backwards guitar at the end). The style is modern R&B. It’s too bad Marvin Gaye isn’t still alive. His singing would have been perfect for this song.
