Synopsis

Chapter I: Chorus of the Cosmos
Planet Earth sings. In this interactive VR experience, we discover the Universe through sound. Our solar system becomes an instrument and we listen to its music.
Chapter II: Songs of Spacetime
Dive into the heart of a black hole to uncover the breakthrough discovery of gravitational waves. Fall into the darkness, and you will find the light. Narrated by Jessica Chastain.
Chapter III: Pale Blue Dot
The Big Bang was silent. Then came sound. Journey from the edge of the cosmos to uncover the strangest song of all. Narrated by Patti Smith.

Director’s statement

Space is not silent. In fact it is full of sound. For thousands of years we’ve looked to the stars to find our place in the Universe, but for the first time we listen to its music. Spheres is a three-chapter journey to uncover the hidden songs of the cosmos.
