Mousechief is bringing ancient back!
Pulling all the strings for an amazing soundtrack
12 Followers-Meteo Xaxier have been busy making the soundtrack for a new game Impulse. The result is a technological mesh of all kinds of different genres into one melting pot of electronica. Opener “President Obama is a Juggalo” is a fun beaty and meaty track that flows nicely with some interesting combinations of monk choirs, […]
Austin Wintory earlier this year swept me away with the formidable Journey soundtrack which has become one of my favourite game soundtracks not just of the year, but of the last decade. In some ways, “Horn” feels very similar in its vein and it simply confirms for me Austin Wintory as a mega powerhouse in the game […]
Aliens Incursion isn’t a game I’ve played (IOS – poor me with a non smartphone still) but elmobo has made a corker of a five track soundtrack for it. The sound is like taking all the theremin love from Alien b-movies and then shoehorned it into something that’s smoother than a chiptune but more like […]
With Samsara hitting the UK on 30/08/12, I am in fever pitch about it. Now armed with my tickets and a Q&A session after the film, here’s a lovely piece about the musical side of the film with Michael Sterns, Lisa Gerrard and Marcello Di Francisci
Just two tracks encapsulate “The Haunting of Magnolia Manor” but Big Giant Circles manages to squeeze as much as he can into the small riff space he’s got. “Welcome Guest” has a great hark back to church organ Dracula dramas and reminds me of the Vampire ride at Chessington! It’s a short riff which is […]
Offspring Fling, the fantastic hark back to old times game released recently has an equally quaint and joyous soundtrack alongside it thanks to Alec Holowka. Opening with its slightly regal but playful “Mother’s Day” you’re presented with a lovely sample base of strings that fall somewhere between the PS1/PS2 era. It’s a catchy tune and […]
Laura Shigihara has worked on some beautiful music in her time and this wonderful live/recorded hybrid cover of the sumptuous Inochi no Namae from the anime Spirited Away showcases her delicate voice to perfection. There’s some wonderful piano playing from Zorsy too.
Adam Fielding has a couple of new things up his sleeves and has also recently been signed to a label too. Whilst he works on album No. 3, he also has completed a production album for general media consumption. Here’s a sneak peek. That would sound good in any platform / shooter / sniper game […]
Another cracking double CD arrangement album from OCRemix, taking on the Nights series, we have all the music genres under the sun plus 30 stunning pieces of artwork to boot from Nightsintodreams.com. It’s yet another masterclass of game music wizardary and its time to go download over at the Lucid Website!
Congratulations on recently completing the soundtrack to the game Kung Fu Panda. Thanks! Now the projects finished, how do you feel about it as a body of work? Is there anything that stands out as a particular piece you’re proud of? I am really pleased with the score – I love a lot of […]
