DJDeedle presents Deedlecast, the best mashup, remix, and retro-future sound.

Nov 6, 2009

"If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe."  Carl Sagan, "Cosmos"

Cosmology is the study of the universe and humankind's place in it.  When DJDeedle was a  young geeky human, one of his heroes was the famed astronomer, astrophysicist, and cosmologist, Carl Sagan.  Your humble deejay even had the fortune to meet Sagan, and hear him speak just a year or two before the astronomer's unexpected death in 1996. 

This week, the week of Sagan's November 9 birthday, DJDeedle salutes him with a tapestry of sound that, like the cosmos, is fluid, but lumpy, sometimes dark, and sometimes sublimely beautiful.  This Deedlecast starts with Sagan's voice, and ends with a DJDeedle remix/mashup of two youtube creations, a moving and haunting tribute to Sagan and his work, "Cosmos," and an ode to science and man's place in the cosmos, featuring Sagan and his colleague scientists, Bill Nye, Stephen Hawking, Richard Feynman, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
