Laconic Description: SCP-1342 is a copy of the Voyager 1 that spontaneously appeared over and splashed down to Earth. The Foundation retrieves it and finds an alien civilization's version of the famous gold disc that contains depictions of the aliens, footage of their civilization, and strange musical tracks.

A decoded message from the aliens explains how they listened to Earth's radio broadcasts over the years and learned to build better and better technology eventually becoming an extremely advanced civilization; eventually they were hit with what was assumedly a gamma ray burst and were nearly wiped out. They soon after discovered the Voyager 1 probe, the music contained on the golden disc, and had a cultural revolution at the discovery of music. They thank Earth for their gift, "from one maker of music to another."
