Few days ago a team of Australian astronomers has discovered a star that is 13.7 billion years old, making it the oldest star ever observed. The star formed just after the Big Bang and contains less iron than predicted by previous research. Few weeks ago we tried to create the noise of the universe: this time the task is to recreate the sound of the Big Bang.

The time when the Universe was a hot and dense unicum, its rapid expansion and its relentless movement towards the infinite have to be condensed to a single music composition.

Participants are to complete the task by Wednesday 19th February and post the track on our Soundcloud group
