I’m a composer from The Netherlands and I like this idea for a short. When it’s done I’d like to compose some music for it if you’d need it. I mostly compose orchestral stuff but also other genres. On my site I’ve got a number of musicdemos and links to shorts that I’ve scored in the past:

Seems like great work! I love the storyboard that you made and I wish you good luck with your project!
PS: I suggest you listen to A Passage Darkly and Asteroidfield for epic orchestral and Into the Deep + Outer Rim for spacey rock.
And “Cybernectics II” at http://student-kmt.hku.nl/~sid for ambient electronics!
