Marcin Przybylowicz had no idea when he started writing the music for The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt that he'd be creating one of the most beloved soundtracks of all time! He collaborated with Mikolai Stroinski and brought in the folk band Percival to add what Marcin describes as the "secret ingredient" to the music that captures the world of The Witcher.

Composer Stephen E. Cox says the chance to write the music for Farpoint, Impulse Gear's ambitious Virtual Reality game for Sony, was a dream come true because it's exactly the kind of science fiction world he's loved since he was a kid. As he told me, getting the right vibe for the music without relying on the usual clichés was a fun challenge.

Get Even Game

Olivier Derivière pushes the envelope of how music can be part of a game in his score for the psychological thriller, Get Even. Olivier grew his music organically from the in-game sounds, and as he explained after I caught up with him after his session at the Game Developer's Conference, it took lots of experimentation!

Gareth Coker describes The Unspoken from Insomniac Games, as "Fight Club for Wizards!" This unique virtual reality game gives players a chance to battle each other using incredibly powerful spells. Gareth says he spend weeks experimenting to get just the right palette for the soundtrack, then found the perfect musicians to perform it.

Ready at Dawn Studios

Austin Wintory's music for DeFormers, from Ready at Dawn Studios, is a kaleidoscope of iconic sounds of Spaghetti Westerns and circus bands. He said his only direction from the studio was to make it fun, and he did!

Austin featured accordion virtuoso, Ksenija Sidorova, and built the music around her incredible ability to get to the heart of the music. In fact, he says she totally made him rethink the kind of playing that was possible on an accordion.
