Colonial Marines composer Kevin Riepl has been talking with horror movie site Bloody Disgusting about his work scoring games and movies:
“I do my best when approaching a scene, to score the human element, if there is one, rather than the environment. To assist in the emotional connection between the story and the viewer. If said scene is all visuals of environments like the lairs, I may at times score it with a mixture of organic orchestral instruments with touches of modern synthetic elements mixed in to really bring the viewer into the setting. In other instances I may score the scene to help connect the viewer to the cold, damp, and completely foreign vibe of the environment.”
He talks briefly about his work on Colonial Marines. Thanks to sh0dan and Brother for the news.
