Alouette 1 is named for a derelict satellite that originally transmitted information on radio waves in the upper atmosphere. It uses salvaged technology, objects, and the human voice to create sustained tone soundscapes and unexpected harmonic relationships. It acknowledges singing as a pre-language communication system with a potential for forming connections.
