Dark and atmospheric ambient space music with a science-fiction theme, Nebula Drift is one long piece of music consisting of 23 minutes of organic, dark & evolving washes of epic instrumental cinematic soundscapes and unearthly outer space drones.

Atmospheric dark underscore and background music reminiscent of films such as 2001, Solaris and other sci-fi epics. Particularly suitable as atmospheric background music for space documentaries and sci-fi feature film soundtracks or any films with a science fiction or other worldly outer space theme.

Also for fans of longform ambient music such as Brian Eno’s Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks, Steve Roach, Lustmord, Thomas Koner, Biosphere, Stars Of The Lid, Tangerine Dream etc.

Dark Ambient Space Music: 'Nebula Drift' (preview) by composer Simon Wilkinson

As well as being available to license for use in your documentary and film soundtracks, this long evolving piece of music is the perfect soundtrack to imaginary dark and mysterious eerie sci-fi landscapes and galaxies. It makes ideal music for meditation, study, relaxation or yoga (many people also find it good atmospheric background music to listen to while playing roleplaying space games or as unobtrusive background music for inspiration when painting or writing).
