Through a burning sky

STS-1 reimagined by Richard Gadd.

"I had hoped to have some ambient sounds from inside the shuttle and not just voices. Listening to the conversation between the shuttle crew and the ground suggested I should focus on the re-entry. This can be characterised by intense heat, compromised communication, sonic booms followed by a relatively quiet glide to landing. So I have used a number of drone tracks to suggest the approach to the earth’s atmosphere, the passage through and the glide with clips of the original to add interest."
