Consideration SPOILER ALERT : Reading this post will uncover a few experiences about The Lion’s Song: Episode 1 – Silence, clarifying the fabulous finale at the Musikverein in Vienna.
Gregor and his group came to us with a solid melodic vision – not just would the music need to pass on a scope of exceptional feelings from forlornness and misfortune to happiness and euphoria, it would likewise tie into the amusement’s storyline itself and create through the span of the diversion in view of the player’s decisions, functioning as a flag for motivation and, at last, input and reward for fulfillment of the diversion.
Still, when Gregor moved toward us about making the music and sound for The Lion’s Song, it was a first for us. We were astonished and excited to hear that the hero of the primary scene would be an author – and we knew quickly that the music for an amusement like this would need to be something else.
At long last, they approached us for a layered approach, with a brought together state of mind topic that would fill in as the ambient sounds all through the scene, and three unique layers to fit the temperament subject that would demonstrate wellsprings of motivation amid the amusement and serve as the end topic, with the tone of the music relying upon the decisions the player made.
The first instructions for these layers was:
- Unremarkable creation (average/”terrible” closure): She remained by her system of shutting everybody and everything out. Her sythesis is mechanical, utilizing all that she has learned in principle yet stays without heart.
- Pivotal creation (super-great completion): Wilma began listening – genuinely listening – to the things around her, the clamors and sounds changing, liquefying into tunes, articulating breaks where slightest expected and never-heard instrumentation.
Along these lines, with everything taken into account, the preparation was very unpredictable and a significant test for us. However, who doesn’t like the tests? We all like them.
Making the motivation layers demonstrated more troublesome. We submitted four or five forms for the “super-great” result however none of them, while very much created, hit an incredible right spot for a diversion as unprecedented as this one – they were either excessively current, or excessively traditional, excessively cleaned, not sufficiently topical – hitting a knock like that can disappoint all round: the dev group realizes what they need out of the music inwardly, yet aren’t certain how to make an interpretation of it into melodic terms (which can happen even with a sound executive also versed in music as Gregor), the music group are attempting their best yet can’t exactly get a handle on all parts of an amusement they know just through storyboards and stills and in this manner miss the mark regarding the craved impact.
Summing all of this, making the soundtrack was a long and winding street. Yet, toward the end we were remunerated with a soundtrack we are enormously pleased with for a diversion we immensely delighted in playing.
