Our client needs to have an original musical soundscape composition for a Sci Fi Setting called ON THE BRIDGE OF A STARSHIP that will be used by a Tabletop Role Playing Game. Read below for more details.

Gig: On The Bridge Of A Starship
2 Tracks (Loop able) X 4 min each
Client would like to provide gamers with two audio tracks that can be played highlighting the sounds of a particular starship. Tracks must be able to loop cleanly and provide a rich, high definition canvas for the ship being featured. A challenge here is to make each track somewhat general, able to be used in a multitude of situations. For example, if you include the sounds of a massive explosion ripping the ship apart and sending the crew into the vacuum of space, use of this shipscape would be too limiting, used only in such an event. Those sorts of specifics destroys the ability for a Game Master to inject this audio in their games which can feature any number of situations. No musical score (those can be layered by the Game Master if she wishes), just the sounds of the setting.
Now, onto the Job itself. Each track needs to create a vivid scene depicting as close as possible being on the bridge or command deck of an enormous capital starship. Imagine ships like a Star Wars Star Destroyer, Battlestar Galatica’s Battlestar, or Star Trek’s Galaxy Class Enterprise, the capital ships we wish to depict span miles and carry an assortment of weapons capable of reducing entire planets to ash. Crewed by hundreds or even thousands of people (and aliens?), the logistics of not only keeping such a ship afloat, much less, commanding the dozens of other ships it has as escort, requires a tremendous amount of man-power and tech.
Tracks required are for:
(1) Normal Ship Operations -
we hear the sounds of being on the bridge of a massive starship during normal operations. The sounds of the equipment, the sounds of the crew going about their business
(2) Deadly Combat -
The capital ship is caught in a life or death battle. Taking critical damage, the crew of the ship are fighting for their very lives as they struggle to keep their proud vessel in one piece while dishing out the hurt on their attackers.
