Dr. Dre Is Working On a Surround Sound Astronomy Instrumental

Illustration for article titled Dr. Dre Is Working On a Surround Sound Astronomy Instrumental

Turns out that closet astronomy lover Dr. Dre is working on a highly experimental, entirely instrumental surround sound interpretation of how planets sound. He decided to take on this project after spending two years "learning the personalities of each planet."

This is how Dr. Dre himself described the project in an interview with Vibe magazine:

An instrumental album is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. I have the ideas for it. I want to call it The Planets. I don't even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. It's just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I'm gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I've been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I've been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It'll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.


I just wonder if he plans on including Pluto or not. [RapRadar via The Atlantic via Boing Boing]
