A Lovely soundtrack, one that fits the tone of all scenes

In an open world adventure, out now on Playstation and Steam, the search for a missing roboticist leads archaeologist, Aliya Elasra, and her sidekick Six into the depths of the Nebula where they live and to the ruins of a lost age and a discovery that will change things forever.

Gorgeous sounds of a cello introducing an emotional and unexpectedly cinematic main theme

A 40 minute Soundtrack Album is out now alongside the game both as a digital download from Bandcamp and Steam and as a limited run of physical CDs.

Laurence composed the music from late 2017 until the final recording session with Leos strings in the summer of 2018. The score comprises a Main Theme, a long and gentle flowing piece to accompany Aliya’s travels through the nebula, a finale and then 20 or so short “reveals” for key moments of discovery during the game. 

Leos Strings, frequent collaborators, performed the music with Hayley Glennie-Smith providing some wonderful off-worldly singing for the ‘Nebula’ sections.
