Musica Universalis

The concept of Musica Universalis is beautiful. Basically, the idea was that the celestial bodies rotating about the Earth in space (yes, this was back when we were at the center of the Universe) were grating against a sphere in space. As they ground up against it, they produced a sound so musically perfect it was actually unachievable by human reproduction, and all music strove to get as close as possible.

This is probably about as close as you get imo… it will always be my favorite song.
