"To boldly go where Paradox has never gone before."
That was pretty much the mindset I had when I went into scoring Stellaris. When I initially got involved in the project, there was quite a lot of musical experimenting, and I went through many variations on how to compose and produce music for Stellaris.
I have lots of sketching material from those early days that show how the “Stellaris sound” was starting to take shape. Of course, from the beginning I knew there should be synth elements, but I also wanted to bring in the orchestral colors to refine the space opera feeling.
Much time was spent on making the synthetic palette of sounds that would drive the atmospheric and melodic elements that became the final soundtrack. It is incredible what you can do with some sine and sawtooth waveforms.
The biggest influencer when it came to sounds was Vangelis. I started listening to him when I was very young, creating vivid fantasy worlds in my mind. Another big influencer was the very stars themselves, and to this day, I still get extremely creative on those nights when I can see thousands of stars in the sky.
