Square Enix has announced that composer Jason Graves (Dead Space) will be composing the score for Tomb Raider. A new video has been released giving fans a glimpse of some chilling behind-the-scenes footage of Tomb Raider with an in-depth interview with Graves!
From the Press Release
SQUARE ENIX and Crystal Dynamics today announced that Jason Graves, an award winning composer with an outstanding pedigree across film, television and gaming is penning the original score for TOMB RAIDER.
Graves’ involvement is revealed in the third episode of The Final Hours of Tomb Raider. In The Sound of Survival, host Zachary Levi escorts viewers to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) London headquarters, and speaks to Graves about his role in the reboot of the iconic Tomb Raider franchise (BAFTA has previously recognized Graves’ work for Original Score and Use of Audio in Dead Space 2).
The composer reveals his vision for the game’s soundscape and speaks about infusing atmosphere, emotion and authenticity into Lara’s origins story through his musical score – and illustrates his search to find the perfect sound for the game, through his collaboration with sculptor, Matt McConnel who created a bespoke and wholly original instrument to aid Graves in bringing his unique sound to Tomb Raider. Tomb Raider is slated for release on March 5th 2013.
