I have recently completed writing music and creating sound design for a virtual reality demonstration of the Rosetta mission; the project was  commisioned by European Space Agency, and produced by Platige Image and Fishladder.

My job was to create a gentle underscore that would not distract the user from the scientific data presented in the virtual space, but that would also provide a little tension and emotional storytelling in the more dramatic moments.

Some of voice-overs were recorded by Ailsing Franciosi, the actress who starred in “Ambition” (and a few other well known titles ;p)

The VR demonstration was recently shown in the European Space Operations Center (ESOC) in Darmstadt, the day of Rosetta landing; it will be available publicly in the near future.
