Jeremy Soule InterviewAzurik: Rise of Perathia, the 3D Action/Adventure game already has the great plot and game-play featuring a funny looking protagonist with blue spiked hair and an impressive halberd but it also needs the sound to draw musical video gamers, and its Jeremy Soules repsonsibility to make sure the job gets done... and it must be done good.
The Armchair Empire has interviewed Jeremy Soule whose works include Giants: Citizen Kabuto and Icewind Dale among many others. Heres a clip:
Armchair Empire: What projects do you have on the go right now? Anything new we should know about?
Jeremy Soule: We just finished a large recording for Azurik: Rise of Perathia, an XBOX game for Microsoft. This utilized the musicians of the Prague Philharmonic comprised in a massive 88 musician orchestra. Im very excited about this title. At the moment, Im working on Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance for Interplay, Dungeon Siege for Gas Powered Games and SOCOM for Sony. In a different arena, Im also involved in an exciting digital orchestra project for Adidas that will be shown around the world in the coming months. This epic 2 minute commercial has a large, Olympic sound that used the Soule Media digital orchestra.
