Lost Planet 3 Soundtrack Available for Digital Download August 27th
AWARD WINNING COMPOSER Jack Wall, best known for the cinematic scores found in popular game titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Mass Effect, Myst, Splinter Cell and Jade Empire- is set to release the soundtrack for Capcom’s sci-fi game Lost Planet 3. The Lost Planet 3 soundtrack is comprised of two volumes, ‘Alien Country Music’ and ‘Score,’ which will be released in a packaged digital download on iTunes and Amazon on August 27th, coinciding with the game’s release.
VOLUME ONE of the Lost Planet 3 soundtrack features country twangs and rock combined with organic percussion elements and infused with synthetics to create alien country music of the future. Wall also performs acoustic, baritone and electric guitar on all the tracks and even composed several key tracks with his band of celebrated artists, such as: “Rattlesnake,” “A Long Way Home,” “Ballad of Jim Peyton,” and “Outlaw.” The band includes Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica) on accordion, guitarist Craig Stull (Firefly), drummer Joe Travers (Zappa Plays Zappa), vocalist Cindy Shapiro (Myst III: Exile), and harmonica player Tommy Morgan, amongst other talented musicians.
“When Spark and Capcom asked me to write alien country as roughly half of the soundtrack to Lost Planet 3, I was really intrigued,” enthuses Jack Wall. “It would be the main character’s mix tape. This is the music Jim Peyton listens to when he’s on mission in his rig – the music his wife Grace, back on Earth, sends him to remind him of home. The challenge was to make it real, but add just enough elements and context to make it seem like it is music from the future.”
VOLUME TWO in the Lost Planet soundtrack is comprised of Wall’s cinematic scores which blend sci-fi orchestra and acoustic themes into a grand atmospheric presence. His creations serve to support the game’s narrative, mysterious environments and action sequences. Key tracks include: “Lost Planet 3 Theme, “The Ice Planet,” “The Vorgg,” and “The Forgotten.” Wall expresses his excitement for the Lost Planet 3 soundtrack and how the music, script, acting and story work together to create an amazing game which he can’t wait for players to experience for themselves.
The Lost Planet 3 soundtrack is available for digital download through Lost In Sound Records, iTunes and Amazon on August 27th. Samples are available at Jack Wall’s site. For more information, check out Jack Wall on Facebook and Twitter.
