The Interplanetary Acoustic Team is a group of musical explorers whose mission is to listen to the stars, to record the deep gravitational waves rolling across the wide sweep of time, the voices carried on those waves.
With our debut album "11 11 (Me, Smiling)"--Ilyse Kusnetz leads us on a lyric meditation that spans the universe, encompassing everything from the Big Bang to the creation of life as we know it to cybernetics to the uploading of human consciousness for a journey into the unknown. Her husband, Brian Turner, has collaborated with her to intertwine their vision and create this album.

Our work is to listen to those who have crossed over into the vast unknown, not only as an act of memory but also as an act of timelessness. It is a way of breaking down the nature of time so that we might sing with one another, through verse and through a dialogue of harmonic structures, no matter what year or century we are wired into.
And so. The Interplanetary Acoustic Team asks that you join us in donning your equipment for the flight. Please adjust your headset and calibrate your listening devices for optimal audio interface. The launch pad is set. Guidance systems are fully operational. We are All systems go.
You need only lean back, press the button, and take in the stars.
