“It’s not often that we flag down video game composers for interviews, but we were recently presented with the opportunity to speak with Jason Graves. To our surprise, we were able to chat for almost an hour about his interesting career and the deeper aspects of his music, and we’ve transcribed all of the highlights.” Read the full interview.

“The Order: 1886’s developers were very clear when approaching Jason: they wanted music that depicted the weight its protagonists carry. Violins and high woodwinds were thrown out, and violas and cellos doubled up. Contrabassoons, bass clarinets and contrabass clarinets reinforced the extreme low frequencies, and the sound for The Order: 1886’s score took shape. There is a lot to learn and enjoy in this episode.” Listen to the podcast here.
“The Order: 1886 is a cinematic game experience based on a tense and unique vision of a dark, Victorian-era London. Its soundtrack, composed by two-time BAFTA Award-winner Jason Graves, brings to life an alternate history, inspired by Knights of the Round Table lore and lycan mythology.” Read the complete interview (subscription required).
