Runningonair - Ceres (Music Video)

video upload by Runningonair

New track from supporting member Runningonair.

"As the first track in a larger Sci-Fi music project, 'Ceres' focuses on the dwarf planet of the same name as a possible agricultural hub for the outer solar system. The soundscape is clearly influenced by early Vangelis, in particular the blade runner OST, this is intentional, as I want the full work to draw on cyberpunk, synthwave and soundtrack sources.

It took some time to find the right approach to completing the video, while I have some knowledge working with graphics and video, creating an entire Ceres based civilisation resplendent with vast solar panels arrays and purple LED illuminated green houses, was way beyond my skill level, not to say anything of the time involved. Instead, I have settled for video of Ceres’ current state, overlaying regimented crops colour corrected for the afore mentioned LEDs. The star fields, as usual, convey best the enormity of space, but also, in this case, the aspiration that at some point humans can achieve these remarkable feats. Whether the result will be for the benefit of many, we can at the least hope for a beautiful dystopia.
Two videos acted as the original inspiration for the Ceres project
1. @ParallaxNick
This deals mainly with the past and present of Ceres
2. @Isaac Arthur
and this deals with the future.
