Science Song of the Week #27: "A Wave of Reason"

John Boswell has taken a highly innovative approach to creating music out of science: he uses Auto-Tune software to create vocal tracks of Carl Sagan and others "singing" and creates instrumental accompaniment for their "melodies." He describes his latest piece, just released this week, as follows:
"A Wave of Reason" is the seventh installment in the Symphony of Science music video series. It is intended to promote scientific reasoning and skepticism in the face of growing amounts of pseudoscientific pursuits, such as Astrology and Homeopathy, and also to promote the scientific worldview as equally enlightening as religion. It features Carl Sagan, Bertrand Russell, Sam Harris, Michael Shermer, Lawrence Krauss, Carolyn Porco, Richard Dawkins, Richard Feynman, Phil Plait, and James Randi.
