On July 16, 1994, one of the most spectacular cosmic events in the history of our solar system began to unfold. A comet, discovered on March 24th, 1993, which was of immense proportions began slamming into the surface of Jupiter, creating everlasting changes to the enormous planetary giant.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of this cosmic event, Aural Films is proud to present a collection of electronic and ambient music by artists from all over the world who submitted their audio interpretations of the events that unfolded in the skies over that week in July of 1994.
