[quote]”Jeff Broadbent’s music for I Am Alive perfectly captures the atmosphere and emotion of the game. The music matches the creative direction.” – Sergei Titarenko, Producer, Ubisoft Shanghai.[/quote]
The I Am Alive original score combines sublime ambiance, emotional intensity and thematic compositions to immerse players in this post-apocalyptic survival experience. As composer Jeff Broadbent explains,
[quote]”A sense of environmental desolation was essential in crafting the aural landscapes of I Am Alive. Because of this, the music often uses ethereal and sound-design inspired approaches, blending organic and synthetic elements to create the sonic imagery of devastation and abandonment within a crumbling city. The quest of our unnamed protagonist to survive and protect the young girl Mei allowed for the use of poignant emotional themes and motifs.”[/quote]
