Watch “Dark Observations”, a full-length, extreme space music video and visual album by Oh the Silence featuring ten space videos! Take a musical and visual voyage through the Solar System and beyond! Soar through Saturn’s rings; see Earth from the ISS; view the Sun and the Moon in new lights; and stare into the hearts of nebulae in this cosmic journey.
Each song on Oh the Silence’s “Dark Observations” album has an accompanying music video based on a different space theme. The videos are composed entirely of publicly-available and royalty-free videos and images (see video descriptions for full credits) and are set to Oh the Silence’s soundtrack.
The themes in the videos include: Mars; Saturn; Jupiter; Earth’s Moon; the Sun; views from the International Space Station (ISS); the Voyager mission; and stunning visualizations of nebulae and galaxies. The videos have all been adapted to be viewed in high definition, as well as a multitude of 3D configurations.
Explore all ten videos (individually or as a full visual album) through the links on this site or on Oh the Silence’s YouTube channel.
