In celebration of the Isle of Spires EP, meet the composers behind the score of Guerrilla Games and PlayStation Studios’ Horizon Forbidden West with the latest video for the title.
Composer Joris De Man stated that it was important to know the story, and how things are not all that great. There’s an element of sadness and impending danger that runs as an undercurrent in this title, which was woven into the theme of the game.
He is joined by Composer Niels Van Der Leest, who states that his challenge was making a new musical history. He set out to determine the sound palette for elements like the Tenakth, working in elements like drums to make a unique sound.
Joe Henson, who served as the composer for The Flight, also weighed in. He talked about how one can play established instruments in a different way, like using a guitar as more of a percussion instrument.
Finally, Composer Oleksa Lozowchuk aligned the sounds with the vision of the world, one that has already been established. He stated that he was excited but also nervous, realizing that he is creating something special.
