In 1977, NASA launched the twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecrafts, fastening to each a phonograph album containing sounds and music of Earth. In 2010, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence in Exile (SETI-X), a dissident offshoot of the better-known Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, received transmissions believed to be extraterrestrial remixes of these records. The Scrambles of Earth CD contains the 70 minutes--in some 24 sound segments--that SETI-X has so far been able to reconstruct. The scientists of SETI-X, finding their colleagues skeptical and their institutions unwilling to vouch for or make available the sounds they had received, at first sought contact with the principality of Sealand, in hopes that this micro-nation dedicated to stewarding controversial data might channel extraterrestrial sounds to a broader public. With no response from Sealand, SETI-X, through a serendipitous Google typo, discovered an ally in Seeland Records, which has historically brokered the release of sounds of uncertain provenance but wide cultural relevance. Scrambles of Earth collects what appear to be "remixes" of the Voyager Record; although the evidence has yet to be fully evaluated, these may represent the first audio signs of alien intelligence.
