Abyssopelagic Elysium - Exoplanetary Voyage


Author Comments

"You have the best pressure-resistant vessel and surveillance technologies available of your time. You've been funded to explore the abyssopelagic layer of an oceanic exoplanet for signs of both life and very rare mineral deposits to report back on. But we have no idea what is waiting down there for you. What will you find to report back on? Or will you even make it back at all? It's just you, your companion A.I and your submarine on this trip. Good luck, don't let this exoplanet become your grave".

Composed for Robot Day 2020. Wanted to try a combo-idea between an Underwater-Ambient and a Sci-Fi exploration piece merged into one on a limited timeframe. If I had some extra time, I would of probably Voice-Acted some A.I. parts for it and maybe given it an extra minute or two of content, maybe also cleaned up some transitions haha

(EDIT: Rendering error with Choir around 4 mins in has now been fixed, sorted 15 mins before Robot Day ends)

This was very dreadful and scary on the surface, but what really sticks out is that it is full of atmosphere. Also the end of it sounds similar to the death of the first Terminator.

The first half of the track was definitely the funnest part to do the design work for! While I don't have any water microphones to sample my own underwater recordings of (very expensive!), I did do some texture layering from existing samples and then designed up some background-console/tech to make the scene almost feel like a futuristic spaceship/submarine combo trying to explore the depths of a watery exoplanet.

Thanks for checking it out!

Oohh goodness it feels refreshingly and slightly creepy, i would love to be on an ambiance with hearing this in the background even if i can't see what unknown stuff is gonna be there ...

This reminds me so much of MindChamber's Madness Regent game at the start and the rest it makes me think of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, i hope you get hired someday for a game that could use this type of ambiance and congrats on the close call!

really really nice.. Im a huge sucker for Choir pieces and you balanced that with the beat perfectly.. It sounds like something you'd hear in the Void in WarFrame.
