“Following on from the success of Dark Skies, Zero-G return with the second released in the Cinematic Ambiences series. The focus here is on ethereal pads, dramatic soundscapes and portentous FX.. The quality of the sounds is second to none.. If you’re looking for a good all-round ambient sample pack Alien Skies should definitely be on your list” – FUTURE MUSIC magazine, UK.

The creative aesthetic behind Alien Skies required considerable musical artistry as well as amazing virtuosity behind the mixing desk. Many of these samples were created through exhaustive processing and mixing of live instrumental and field recordings.

In sourcing recordings for the project no stone was left unturned. A diverse selection of sound sources were utilized, ranging from Indian flutes and bowed Ecuadorian folk strings to found metallic percussion and industrial machines, to ensure the perfect array of raw sonic material. These sounds were then processed in the studio using literally hundreds of different manipulation programs and tools. Finally, the processed sounds were re-sampled and treated as traditional instruments in musical arrangements to create a fantastic array of synthetic, yet clearly organic, textures.

In short, Alien Skies is truly at the zenith of modern cinematic sound design!
