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).
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:
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.

Mark Mosher of Modulate This! has released Sounds From a Distant Outpost, a free Ableton Live Pack.
Sounds From a Distant Outpost is more than a sample sound library. Over 30 hours in the making, it is a set of 12 deep and expressive instrument racks that will transport you to a dark and distant outpost. From here you will be able to explore the sounds, machines, and creatures of this world. These instruments will help spark your imagination and I hope inspire you to create your own soundtrack for this world. Of course, the instruments will also help add an interesting “edge” to any sound or music project.
The source audio is made up of some of my field recordings as well as original synthesized and re-synthesis harmonic content. The concept for the instruments was based on a back-story I created as the project progressed. Fueled by the story and setting, I translated these these source samples into Ableton Live racks and meticulously programmed them to create playable dynamic instruments which are placed under your command via macro parameters, velocity, after touch, and modulation wheel mappings. I’ve also provided the original source samples for the project so those who don’t have Ableton Live will be able to use these samples as oscillator sources in synths like Absynth, Alchemy, ElectraX and Blofeld.
Sounds From a Distant Outpost is available as a free download for Ableton Live 8 and Suite 8 (Intro not supported), and a pack of samples for use in your sampler of choice is available as well.
