Focus Home Interactive have today sent us over a new trailer for their upcoming RPG, Bound by Flame.
This trailer comes revealing the soundtrack to the game, with commentary from the composer Olivier Derivière and the singer Iré.
For those who don’t know, Olivier Derivière is a composer who won multiple awards for his work in video games (Remember Me, Assassin’s Creed 4). In this video illustrated by many new sequences and enthralling excerpts from the game’s soundtrack, Olivier tells us about his work on Bound by Flame. This is also the opportunity to discover singer Iré Zhekova, who gives her voice to some of the game’s musics. The trailer sees the two explain how they steeped the music in an atmosphere of loneliness and despair conveyed in the dark atmosphere of the game. They also describe how they combined a murmuring choir with the clear sound of a single voice full of emotion to produce a sense of contrast between the game hero and the flame demon possessing him. They invented an imaginary language for Iré’s singing to explore the human voice and express emotions beyond the meaning of words and to express feelings of hope and fear.
