Theme from Capsule (also Main Theme from Capsule and The Spaceman's Theme) is the main theme from the 2011 Wingless Films production Capsule, and was created by Tom Menary. It is also the name of the second track on the Capsule soundtrack, which presents a suite version of the theme.

DetailsEdit

The theme was composed in January 2011,[1] and is heard throughout Capsule and in related tracks. A brief rendition first appears as part of the film's "Wingless Sting", then the first three notes are played briefly in the "Eyes Open" cue—and again to close "Pretty Far Out". It is notably used for exterior effects shots of the capsule in "If You Could See (Sitting in a Tin Can)" and "Message Aftermath (Space Transition)".

A brief variation is heard halfway through "Feeling Very Still (pts. 1 & 2)", and another opens "There's Nothing I Can Do", which also contains a full statement towards the end. A gentle, piano version closes out "My Spaceship Knows Which Way to Go", and two versions on strings and guitar comprise the unused cue "The Spaceman (An Ending)".

Full, alternate versions of the theme are heard in "The Spaceman's Theme", which originated as an early demo of the motif, and the demo track "A Most Peculiar Orbit".

The theme also forms the main riff of the bonus tracks "Space Wail" and "Big Blue Rock in Front of the Sun", and features
