SETI was composed by Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta in 2002. All sounds in SETI are exclusively extraterrestrial, that is, sounds captured from the sidereal space by astronomical observatories and satellites. With those sounds a virtual score of music was created. The music score is made with several layers defining interlaced fields of sounds. The music is the dynamic path through sound fields complex. Its logic is no longer predicative. Metamorphosis. It is a slow deep dive inside a space that is also extraterrestrial - because it is virtual, out of space. SETI is dedicated to the Swiss Peruvian artist Francesco Mariotti. To enter inside this spacetime complex it is necessary to be out from the rules established by daily life. Out of our world. Free time, free thought.

The performance in 2008 at Björn Ressle's Gallery, in New York City also counts with the creative collaboration of Mark Wiener and Marcia Grostein. Not only the music, the performance includes the projection of a film by Emanuel Pimenta, based on images captured by NASA in the frontiers of the known Universe.
