For this short, the audio brief was open with the only goal being to avoid over humanising the characters. The objective was more an exercise in the creation of a certain mood and feeling from the audio. The soundtrack is rugged, bleak and powerfully sonorous at times. This helps deliver a believable sonic ambience for a huge dystopian planet, with a musical narrative supporting a deadly alien virus outbreak amongst a planet’s inhabitants.

The sound design for character foley movements and actions are extremely minimal. This was achieved by balancing these sounds very quietly in the mix, you have to listen deeply to hear them which enhances the power of the soundtrack and planet ambiences.
