We are always thrilled when music from our repertoire has a place in interesting projects. This time, Boban Markovic Orkestar's song “SAT", from "Boban i Marko" album, is featured in the trailer of "Earth Speakr".

"Earth Speakr" is started by artist Olafur Eliasson, who works with sculpture, painting, photography, film, installation, and digital media.
