For his score, Eshkeri drew inspiration from Jean-Michel Jarre to Steve Reich and films 2001 A Space Odyssey and Fantasia. He uses vintage instruments, a Moog, a Roland Juno-6, and a Gibson Flying V guitar which was inspired by the 60s space race, plus choir, strings and brass to deliver the "awe-inspiring epic scale".

"I'm an '80s, kid I grew up with the space shuttle and electronic music by Vangelis, Kraftwerk and Jean-Michel Jarre," he says.

"Synthesisers seemed like the future; instruments of outer space. Even though I'm playing an instrument that's 50 years old, in some artistic way it embodies the idea of space travel - organic beings travelling to the most hostile environment can only survive by surrounding ourselves with incredible bits of technology. Organic wooden instruments and voices with technology seemed the right sound world to express that experience."
