Dear Esther soundtrack to be performed live at the Barbican by Jessica Curry and her band.
The original soundtrack for The Chinese Room’s Dear Esther will be performed live at the Milton Court Concert Hall in London on Friday 14 October, 2016.
BAFTA winning composer Curry and her live band – featuring strings, electronics and vocals – will perform the game’s stark but sumptuous soundtrack live on stage, accompanied by Nigel Carrington as the game’s narrator. The music will be triggered by the progress of writer and producer, Dan Pinchbeck, who will complete a full play-through of the game on the big screen.
We are big fans of Jessica Curry’s work. Her scores for both Dear Esther and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture play a significant part in making each game such affecting and memorable experiences. If you are not familiar with her music, we invite you to pull up a chair and lose yourself for a few moments.
