Stephen Hawking's Favorite Places - Symphony of Science - Netflix

The Symphony of Science is a music project created by Washington-based electronic musician John D. Boswell. The project seeks to “spread scientific knowledge and philosophy through musical remixes.” Boswell uses pitch-corrected audio and video samples from television programs featuring popular scientists and educators. The audio and video clips are mixed into digital mashups and scored with Boswell's original compositions. Two of Boswell's music videos, “A Glorious Dawn” and “We are All Connected”, feature appearances from Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, and Stephen Hawking. The audio and video is sampled from popular science television shows including Cosmos, The Universe, The Eyes of Nye, The Elegant Universe, and Stephen Hawking's Universe. Unruly Media, a video tracking service, first charted “A Glorious Dawn” on September 21, 2009. A month later, the video had received more than a million views and was ranked in the music category on YouTube as one of the top rated videos of all time. On November 9, 2009, Third Man Records released a 7-inch single of “A Glorious Dawn” for the 75th anniversary of the birth of Carl Sagan.

The second video in the series is 4 minutes, 12 seconds in length and features Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye. It was released on October 19, 2009.

Additional visuals come from NOVA's The Elegant Universe, Stephen Hawking's Universe, and Cosmos, among others. On January 23, 2010, the video was shown at the South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Church in Long Island NY, as part of a youth-directed service. The video has been used in other churches and classrooms. The title comes from the chorus spoken by Neil deGrasse Tyson and remixed by Boswell: We are all connected To each other, biologically To the earth, chemically To the rest of the universe atomically
