Solar Flux is found in one of the calm regions, even though it is about the death of a thousand suns. You can see the salvation of those suns and hear some gentle music below.

Lovely. Solar Flux was originally released on iPad and the PC version will be the new HD release, complete with extra bits and bobs. Here's a look at the Hyperion Galaxy.
