182w ago - ModNation Racers Audio Producer Andrew Bracken has announced today that the official soundtrack of the PS3 and PSP title is now available on Sony's PlayStation Network.
To quote: Getting the right music was tricky for ModNation Racers since it needed to not only feel like racing, but also to capture the creative spirit and unique visual style of the ModNation Racers universe.
Thankfully, United Front Games did a great job finding the right guys for the job.The end result is an upbeat mix of rock, hip-hop, and funk music composed by a handful of talented composers, including Peter Chapman, Marc Baril, and Melissa Reese, who are all featured on the soundtrack.
We are now happy to announce the release of the ModNation Racers soundtrack on PSN for only $7.99. The 16-track soundtrack, featuring 15 songs from the game as well as a bonus track, can also be found on iTunes.
Here are a few of my favorite tracks:
This bonus track is the official anthem for ModNation Racers and everybody who worked on the game is required to sing it to themselves once a day.
184w ago - Zipper Interactive Community Specialist Chris Roper has unveiled today that the SOCOM 4 PS3 soundtrack is composed by none other than Battlestar Galactica's Bear McCreary.
To quote: While the SOCOM franchise may be best known for its top-notch online multiplayer aspects, we think you'll be blown away with what's in store for you in SOCOM 4's single-player campaign.
We're pushing the franchise further than it's ever gone in terms of visuals, storytelling, presentation and, of course, action sequences that will leave your jaw on the floor, all while maintaining SOCOM's classic tactical focus.
With all that in mind, we wanted to round out the experience with a stellar soundtrack, one that would help define the franchise's next big release. We're very excited to announce that the score is being handled by none other than Bear McCreary, who is best known for his critically-acclaimed work on Battlestar Galactica.
No stranger to blending genres of music, Bear's work on the soundtrack is largely influenced by Asian instrumentation, which corresponds to the Southeast Asia setting of SOCOM 4. Making use of ethnic soloists and gamelan...

The soundtrack will be coming out this Thursday on PSN, and features eight tracks from the game and over an hour's worth of music, all for $2.99. So be sure to pick it up when it comes out. I also have a very special treat for you.
I spoke with Vincent Diamante, the award-winning music composer and audio designer behind Flower's wonderful soundtrack, and he graciously agreed to putting together some thoughts on creating the soundtrack. Enjoy!
Looking back, a year-plus removed from working on Flower, it's hard for me to remember anything but wonderful times with Sony and thatgamecompany. Then I think a bit harder and remember: the fights.
Not fights amongst us developers, no. Besides, that comes part and parcel in the process of game development. Rather, the fights happened within the music. All-out brawls between themes, lines, instruments, harmonies as the music struggled to find...
