Drawing on her love of astronomy, Mirzapour’s deck features a white spherical speaker in its centre, designed to represent the planet, with an upper hemisphere that can be removed to place a record on its base. It also features an orange, spherical cartridge head shell designed to represent Titan, one of Saturn’s moons.

The movement of the stylus mirrors Titan moon’s rotation around the planet, while the rotation of the record is intended to mimic that of Saturn’s rings.
