Above and Beyond by Bassnectar and Seth Drake
Casualty by Hidden Citizens
I recently discovered the group Hidden Citizens who do seriously epic trailer music and covers of pop and rock songs (‘Don’t Speak’ by No Doubt has never sounded so ominous. . .). This album instantly conjures up a sci-fi feel, and this song in particular gets my imagination going. I’ve always dreamed of writing a space opera, and if I do, Hidden Citizens will definitely be in my writing soundtrack!
The entire Mass Effect Original Soundtrack
Is it cliche to list the entire Mass Effect score? Because it’s definitely my go to listening whenever I want to write sci-fi, because it’s just TOO essential and too powerful to not listen to (only negative: getting caught up in the score so much that I wish I was playing the game. I didn’t choose the Commander Shepard life, the Commander Shepard life chose me).
