You should watch this capital ship battle from Elite Dangerous
In space, no one can hear you scream, but funnily enough they can hear explosions, laser blasts, and engine noise. Which is fantastic, of course, particularly in the case of the latest Elite: Dangerous trailer. The two-minute-and-44-second symphony of sci-fi destruction also features a spiffy orchestral soundtrack by composer Erasmus Talbot.

In fact, the video itself was used as part of Frontier's composer selection process, while the newly minted trailer track was part of Talbot's pitch for the job. Frontier's YouTube verbiage says that the video also serves as a development tool for things like the game's GUI layout, special effects, and ship materials. Have a look -- and a listen -- after the break.
