Music For An Infinite Universe – 65daysofstatic

Producer & Engineer

Soundtrack Album

This was my fifth record with 65daysofstatic and it was very different compared to the previous ones. This album made up the soundtrack for PS4 game ‘No Man’s Sky’ and the band were in uncharted territory in terms of how to write for the medium. Even though soundtracking was the perfect direction for the band and their music the responsibility and size of this project weighed quite heavily.

At the time of recording the band didn’t have everything completely written and mapped out as they had with previous records. There were lots of bits of things but nothing that was ultimately “finished”. So, much of this record was a new way of working for them.

I had to really draw out of them collectively what they wanted from each piece. Sometimes arranging and suggesting parts or direction. There was so much experimenting on this record – far more than any of the others to date. The form of the record took shape over the 2 weeks we took to record it finally taking form as a fairly traditional soundtrack album but one that to me and many others surpasses the project it was meant to soundtrack.
