About the Project

We made the whole soundtrack completely synthesizer based, there are no organic instruments featured in the music, which seems logical for an outerworldly space station filled with aliens that don’t have direct knowledge to human music. This makes the soundtrack stand out from the crowd of other space soundtracks, which often feature a hybrid synth-orchestral sound,referencing popular movies and video games. We wanted to break out from this.

The main part of the soundtrack is ambient music for the three different decks of the spacebase: engineering deck, fun deck and bio deck.
The engineering deck features pulsating and energetic synth tracks emphasizing the constant work of aliens and machines that is done here to keep the space station running, you might find some reminiscences of Kraftwerk music in there.
On the contrary, the bio deck, where plants and ressources grow, sounds very relaxing and features mainly spheric sounds.
For the fun deck, we created music that sounds how we thought that aliens would imagine human disco and dance music, with elements of funk, techno or EDM.
