International Space Orchestra is a film/opera project by artist Nelly Ben Hayoun. In the summer of 2012, a temporary orchestra was set up with scientists and staff connected to the NASA Ames Research Center, the Singularity University, the International Space University and SETI.

The making-of film tells the story of how the project came about. We get to learn more about the members of the NASA band, their functions within NASA and how they think about space or music. International Space Orchestra is a hybrid experiment in which scientists become performers and artists astronauts. Are Hayoun also managed to gather a dream team for her project which included, among others, Bruce Sterling as co-writer, Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz, Arthur Jeffes of Penguin Cafe and Bobby Womack, all of whom collaborated on the music.

The making of film of this International Space Orchestra is part of the current exhibition Space Odyssey 2.0. On May 4 - the same day the new exhibition Design Beyond Production opens - this film will be shown on big screen.
