System Exit (sounds from the Large Hadron Collider)

March 14, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

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.

Other credits:
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).

I used Chris Laurel’s awesome open-source Celestia program to model and render the space journey, planets, etc. The fictional earth-like planet arrived at at the end is called Gradius and was created by Gradius_Fanatic.

There are three photos in the clip which were taken by the European Southern Observatory. Their catalogue numbers are:

eso0544a
eso0332a
eso0927a

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.
