Sony released a behind the scenes video for Ready at Dawn and Sony Santa Monica’s forthcoming action-adventure third-person shooter, The Order:1886, this time focusing on the game’s music.
In the BTS video, Ready At Dawn and video game music composer, Jason Graves discuss the music influences & more that shaped the game’s score:
“With all the effort we put into creating a compelling world, we knew we would be extremely demanding of how music would be composed for the game and especially who would be our partner in crime.
We didn’t just want a score; we were seeking a ‘sound’ that would define our world. We wanted to be inspired by whoever would join us to achieve this. The question was where to start,” said Ready At Dawn Studios’ CEO and Creative Director, Ru Weerasuriya.
Weerasuriya adds, “The initial foray into our musical exploration came in the form of an unlikely meeting between two of the most accomplished composers in the gaming industry; Jason Graves (Dead Space, Tomb Raider) and Austin Wintory (Journey).
After a crash course on the IP and a heavy download of years of material, we waited with bated breath for the first signs of musical life. Though short, their collaboration spawned ‘The Knights’ Theme’ and was the spark that kindled the sound that would define our world.”
The Order: 1886 is set to launch on February 20, 2015 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
