Late last week Sumthing Else Music Works, a record label dedicated to licensing and distributing video game soundtracks, released a digital and physical version of the Steep soundtrack. It can be picked up in stores or purchased digitally over at their website. The game’s post-rock instrumental score was composed by Zikali, a European collective of music composition and sound design artists.
Here’s what Zikali had to say about Ubisoft’s open world extreme sports game:
“The musical artistic direction consists of the encounter between a post-rock formation (drums, bass, guitars, synths), to which is added an orchestral dimension (strings, brass) and a set of original instruments (hang drum, duduk) that define the sound identity of the project. The energy of the rider is represented by a modern and electric sound associated with the action; And the orchestra characterizes the different places (summits, narrow corridor or wide spaces) by the variety of its modes of play, bringing a strong emotional dimension.”
