A new video posted today describes how the soundtrack was created for the upcoming game, Starhawk. Composer Christopher Lennertz describes the many choices and influences that were used to help inspire music for the game.
Tracks were created to hold true to the spirit of the old west, while also including classical instruments such as French horns and violins. While a great deal of the music had been inspired by pieces of concept art, some of the art for the game was also inspired by the music. Check out the video after the cut to tune into some of these great gritty melodies.
