“Elegy for Carl Sagan”

Bradleigh Stockwell submitted a thoughtful musical arrangement w/ music video called “Elegy for Carl Sagan.” The film was originally completed on November 9, 2011, the date of Dr. Sagan’s 77th birthday, and was shot in and around San Francisco. The images from space were captured by the Hubble Space Telescope archives.

Stockwell says that, “The music is original and composed specifically in memory of Sagan.” He adds, “Now, less than 20 years since his passing, it’s wonderful to see how Prof. Sagan has not been forgotten, that his spirit is still relevant and how – more than ever – that spirit is shining even brighter in the digital era, in a world that has need of it more than ever.”
