The Music behind CDF Starfighter
Concerning the music of CDF Starfighter. As being primarily a house music producer, for this project I really wanted to dive into the things that inspired me to produce music to begin with. When I was in high school I was really into a program called Hearts of Space. It was all spacey and New Age stuff. Turning the lights out and getting lost in the textures really put me in a certain relaxed head space. Also I was a huge fan of the Quake soundtrack by Trent Reznor. I remember putting the soundtrack on at night and falling asleep to it. Quake was one of those soundtracks that I loved listening to even outside of the game. These were the two main inspirations for the CDF Starfighter soundtrack. I didn't want to do the standard military sound that you hear in most shooters.
The VR technology allows us to create some incredible immersion. So taking the setting into Starfighter 13.wav consideration I thought that emotional textures layered with a rhythm element would fit really nicely. Hopefully I have managed to create a soundtrack that you can put on at night after a long day and lose yourself in a soundscape like I used to do.
