System Exit (sounds from the Large Hadron Collider)
This video looks and sounds better at 1080p.
The music was created using sounds produced by Cern’s Large Hadron Collider, as well as analogue synthesis and signal processing. I created it for the Synthgear.com remix competition and then decided to do this clip to make it more fun.
3D spaceship model and textures designed by T Green.
Thanks to Max Grueter for the Astronaut model. Check out his stuff, it’s amazing: www.grueter.com.
I also used a part of essjayvee’s model for the astronaut’s chair (from Google 3D warehouse).

There are three photos in the clip which were taken by the European Southern Observatory. Their catalogue numbers are:
The audio I put on youtube is mastered in a less-than-ideal way (and youtube’s audio isn’t much good). This track and others will be *professionally mastered* in the near future and will be released on the net.
