Recent Updates

Feburary 9 - Clint Mansell confirms his musical involvement in his first major video game: Mass Effect 3. In a Quietus interview, he briefly describes the nature of composing music for a video game:

"As I was saying about Public Enemy and re-working old hip-hop tunes for Requiem, and kind of re-working old ballet tunes for Black Swan, with something like Mass Effect you're more like a DJ, with all these elements. You've got the holding pattern, then the big explosion where you need the score to kick in. Then you need to take it off on a tangent. You've got all these different elements that change depending on what the player does. You have to figure out an overall symphony, but be able to break it down into component parts. You can bring the pain when required."

I wonder if Jack Wall and Sam Hulick will still be involved in some capacity.

Seems to be two threads about this, oh well.



I'll also add a WTF? And what happened to Jack Wall and the gang?

Curiouser and Curiouser... or however it's spelled. It's much more broad in theme than Clint's used to, but should be interesting.

Remember reading a while back that Jack Wall might not be involved. I'm not sure he wanted to do it.



He writes some pretty damn haunting music, though:

Think I'll hop over to this thread as it's where most of the posts are. Was just saying earlier that "The Fountain" is one of the best soundtracks I've ever listened to. Fit the tone of the film perfectly. If he can bring that to ME3, we've got a winner on our hands...

I honestly don't get all the love for Jack Wall.



Jack Wall pales in comparison to this guy.

If he composes anything as good as Lux Aeterna for the ME3 soundtrack, then I'm sold.

I now worry that ME3's ending will be as depressing as that of Requiem for a Dream, though. :?

Don't get me wrong, this guy is good, but the synth! I fear it's all going to be string and piano based.

We love Jack Wall because he wrote an awesome soundtrack that fit ME really well.

But listening to a "Death is the Road to Awe", I am seriously excited for ME3. That **** is amazing.

Even taking a dump is epic if it's scored with Lux Aeterna.

Jack Wall is awesome, but I cannot say no to the guy who composed this masterpiece.

I'm expecting people to die. I'm also expecting Shepard to just break down.

Mansell is great. But a ME without Jack Wall ?

I'm shocked.

I still want Wall of Sound involved. If only for cohesion and the ease of working on the whole trilogy.

I 'm worried for the same exact thing.
