A soundscape model of a satellite scanning through the earth's surface, orbiting from pole to pole, scanning through the different lands. the sound layers are varying as the structure of the surface changes. main sound sources were whitenoise, freq-modulated sines, pulses and one processed recording of my creaking wood floor (using dynamic/condenser mic + minidisc). these were treated with linear envelopes and processed with time-varying comb filter, pitch shifting and generic chorusing/flanging effects.

    Thanks for the sounds - I melded it with a bunch of other things to make the soundbed for a story about a living spaceship in an episode of Pseudopod.org available here:

    Wow, that works very well. You're a professional. I will add this to the background of my custom rain noise when I got to sleep at night.

    Thank you, this is really awesome.

    Sounds beautifully haunting. What kind of a mapping did you use for the soundscape model? You mentioned surface structure, does that mean geological structures, land use or something like those? What kind of a data source did you use for the mapping, or is it based on your personal artistic feeling? Personally, I wouldn't mind listening to considerably longer versions of this, say 20 minutes or more. Good background music for midnight oil burning sessions...
