Welcome to The Music of What Happens, a podcast of sound, music, storytelling, and experimental audio. Relax, take in a different world, and drift with us... in a surveillance balloon?

Today we follow an intrepid strip of film, a spool of cellulose and silver, as it travels further and further from home on the longest, and unlikeliest of journeys. It's a slow, gentle, soft recounting of a hard, dangerous tale of technology and exploration.

Please share the podcast widely, rate and like it, and help us grow! React, respond, and review on Twitter @musichappens, Instagram @musichappenspodcast and get exclusive behind the scenes commentary and show notes, and extra material, at
