a pulsar symphony

what would the Galaxy sound like if pulsars were the main musical instrument and it would play Beethoven's 9th Symphony (An die Freude/Ode to Joy). The distribution and frequencies of pulsars in the animation are realistic. The flashes of pulsars have a relation to their kinetic energies. Have a listen.
