BAFTA winning composer to provide the soundtrack for Ubisoft’s Far Cry Primal.
Jason Graves is best known for his textural concept music and scores for AAA titles including Until Dawn, Evolve, Tomb Raider and The Order: 1886. He also composed the unsettling and stark music for Dead Space, one of the most evocative video game scores from the last decade.
Graves has created an entirely live organic soundtrack for Far Cry Primal that blends an array of sounds from the natural world and animal kingdom. To represent each of the game’s tribes Graves has composed a set of textures using instruments including a ram’s horn, flute, Aztec death whistle, vocals, ritualistic percussion and raw sounds including bushes, bones, antlers, and clay pots.
Jerome Angelot, Music Designer at Ubisoft Montreal Studio said:
“Jason manages to convey the beauty and the roughness of the land of Oros with his music. Far Cry Primal’s score is a fresh mix of savant sound design, epic percussions and attention to detail. It will surprise the players; each time I hear the screams and the chants in the Izila tracks, I get chills.”
Speaking of chills. If you’ve never heard an Aztec death whistle before, you had better prepare yourself:
