shared a sneak peek at the Sci-fi Funk in Cosmic Star Heroine's music on PS4 and PS Vita below today.
To quote: From the Western-infused opening of Wild Arms to the vocalized battles of the Persona series, music is an essential element to any great RPG.
For our upcoming PS4 and Vita RPG, Cosmic Star Heroine, we knew we needed an amazing soundtrack - so we teamed up with Hyperduck Soundworks (Dust: An Elysian Tail, Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4, Kingdom Rush: Frontiers). Here to tell you a bit about the composing process is Chris Geehan from Hyperduck.
Chris Geehan: For the Cosmic Star Heroine soundtrack, we initially wanted to harness our own personal love for 80′s and 90′s film, game, and anime music, going from the Blade Runner soundtrack scored by Vangelis, to the Lethal Weapon soundtracks scored by Michael Kamen, David Sanborn (Saxophone), and Eric Clapton (Guitar), from the Grandia soundtrack scored by Noriyuki Iwadare, to the anime soundtrack of Bleach scored by Shirō Sagisu. The list just kept growing, bigger and bigger, and the influences are indeed vast.
Having such a large scope for music styles and influences is an exciting thing, and takes a lot of care and consideration to make...
