BioShock Infinite’s Music To Be Composed By Series Veteran, Garry Schyman
Irrational Games’ main man, Ken Levine, participated in an Ask Me Anything (AMA), on Reddit yesterday.
Destructoid reported on one of the major findings in the AMA. As one might guess, a lot of the questions he was asked led to some pretty revealing answers and details about BioShock Infinite. And one of the biggest reveals was that Garry Schyman, who composed BioShock and BioShock 2, is going to work on the music for Infinite. This news should allay the fears of anyone who was afraid that the game would lack the true “BioShock feel” of previous titles, at least when it comes to the audio.
During the AMA, Levine said,
We’re proud to announce that Garry Schyman, composer of BioShock 1 and 2 has returned to the composer’s chair for BioShock Infinite. His score is very different from the first two games, yet very much guided by the same aesthetic principles. We were lucky to have him and I can’t wait until you get to hear some of his stuff. He’s working in a different, sparer style, but it’s awesome.
Ken Levine says it’s awesome? Good enough for us! If you’d like to see what other questions Levine answered (some of them are hilarious), and maybe a picture of him man-hugging one of the game’s producers, head to the AMA here. If you’re not familiar with his work, you can listen to one of Schyman’s pieces, BioShock 2’s “Eleanor’s Lullaby”, down below.
