  • Grim Music!

    The very talented musicians we've been working with to create the music for Grim Dawn had a recording session recently and came up with this first track:

          An audio post has been a long time coming, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. I've been working with a good friend to compose and record the score for the game, and I think everyone will be happy with the end result.
          Enjoy the silence.

              How are these songs composed? Is that real instrumentation or synthesized computer generated sounds?

                  How we do it.

                  A combination of both is typically the standard for soundtracks these days, where there isn't a budget to hire a full orchestra. The real instruments played are the piano, tambourine, flute, duduk, and some of the percussion. The remaining instruments were private instrument banks created in Gigastudio, Logic, and Fruity Loops amassed over 15 years of composition. Everything was recorded in real-time, however, because pre-quantized instruments, no matter how realistic, always sound less real.

                      The music sounds like a cross between Akira Yamaoka and Basil Poledouris. Sort of Silent Hill meets Conan, I really like it!

                        Nice stuff. I was just going to make a post about the music.

                        That track had a slight "western shootout at high noon" feel to it about half way through. I like it.

                        ... wait is that awesome? ok, how about - its like you're drunk and a grizzly bear is punching you but... no wait... its like you're drunk, you punch a grizzly bear in the face but the bear is also drunk, so it just explodes into gibs."
