hello everyone - i'm new to space engine. What a surprise when i unpacked it and the beautiful music started playing - had the usual 20 windows open and i didn't suspect it found spaceengine while googling around to give help to someone on a facebook scifi writers group who wanted map making. I myself am making an audio drama - its season 3 about to wrap - there's room for input on the last two scripts and some filler voice acting if anyone is into that.
We get a lot of help from the professional music scene. There's so much music left over that I have found with a spacey theme I think you guys might enjoy ( in fact made two versions of episode 13 because I couldn't choose yay for digital streaming. Some is by special permission but a lot of it is creative commons 3 for non-profit, some is cc0 or ccby4 which you can also use for profit. If you add it to youtube videos they will monetize the track though. You will find the links to the music in full amongst the show notes at our website doctoraudioadventures.com and some of it including those I haven't used, amongst my playlists at soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/doctoraudioadventures/sets
Whilst looking for new music on YouTube, I came across this artist called Scandroid. His music I found very pleasing - very retro-wavy and sci-fi. Curious to hear more, I did some research and found that "Scandroid" was actually just one of the music projects that a musician named "Klayton" maintained. His other projects included "Circle of Dust" (sort of industrial dystopian metal), FreqGen (experimental electronic) and lastly "Cellweller", which is electronic but fairly multi-genre (some of which are actually really emotional). FiXT is a production company he runs together with other musicians that has more commercial music.
Klayton also has various how-to videos for synthesizers - so if you need tips for how to use them, you can find them there.
UK artist Alistair Rennie (musician name Ruptured Worlds) released a new album on the dark ambient website Cryo Chamber called "Exoplanetary", which I find is the very definition of ambient. It plays a little like a podcast, and is about the exploration of a Earth-like world orbiting Proxima Centauri.
Here is the first track for those who are curious:
"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - Douglas Adams
