Remedy’s Control Gets Two Renowned Composers
505 Games and Remedy Entertainment, Plc. have revealed that award-winning composer Martin Stig Andersen (INSIDE, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus) and BAFTA-nominated composer Petri Alanko (Alan Wake, Quantum Break) are creating the score for supernatural action-adventure game Control. Combining Andersen’s experience with creating eerie compositions with Alanko’s unique blend of orchestral and electronic arrangements, the renowned duo is joining forces to form an otherworldly soundscape for Control’s mysterious world.
Control’s score is being carefully crafted to back an ever-changing world that juxtaposes reality with the unexplainable. Andersen and Alanko’s scores will mirror Control’s dynamic gameplay elements by evolving around the game’s moments of stirring surrealism and fierce action.
"We knew Control required a very specific form of music to fit the aesthetic vision. Given the exceptional scores of their previous projects including Alan Wake, Limbo and Inside, it was clear to us that combining the talents of both Petri Alanko and Martin Stig Andersen would be perfect for creating such a weird, supernatural soundtrack for Control," said Control’s Senior Audio DesignerVille Sorsa.
I know a few of us here at XBA really do enjoy a great score that accompanies a game, and it can definitely compliment the games on screen action if done right, and take a games narrative to new heights. With that being said, check out the reveal video below of the two composers and what they have to say about what and how music makes a game better:
